EPISODE 15 - "Waiting for the End of the World / When Shaggy Met Scooby!"
Scooby Apocalypse - Issue #1

7/24/2017 - "Comics will break your heart." 

Jack Kirby said that, and he was a guy who knew a thing or two about the medium. That said, "The King" himself was never around to check out Scooby Apocalypse and maybe this particular title would've changed his mind! We'll never know.

This week Evan and Luke take a long hard look at twenty-something pages of a comic book instead of twenty-something minutes of a cartoon. If you're not interested in sequential imagery they discuss so much more than that- Listen in to get the scoop on what older men think young people look like, what kind of pizza they would serve at "Blazing Man", and who the most violent member of Mystery Inc. is. (The answer will surprise you!)

  • 8:27 - The description of Shaggy's design including "brown cords or something" instantly reminded Evan of his favourite "Jake & Amir" episode.

  • 17:57 - Click here to gaze upon the terrifying Scooby Apocalypse #1 variant drawn by Dan Panosian, if you dare!

  • 24:44 - On a related note, most of what we know about Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! is from the Twitter account for Scoobypedia and their frustrated efforts to watch and chronicle the show.
  • 56:52 - In case you weren't familiar with it, here's the riddle Luke was referencing.
  • 1:18:22 - Rick & Morty fans should immediately recognize the name "Krombopulous Michael". For everyone else, just watch this clip:
