This is a really cool imagining of the Scooby -Dooniverse, but I'm still waiting for my childhood 'ship to come into play 😉

The dialog is solid and the art is good but there's not much direction to the series other than "Let's drive around." We need some subplots and a goal to the series to make it more interesting.

Originally read single issues.

A solid 4 stars, and a worthy continuation of the new Scooby Apocalypse saga. Is it as mind-blowingly good as Volume 1? Not quite but it gives us some new depths and connections between our heroes that a kids tv series couldn't delve into.

Still one of the best DC titles out there.

I've seen countless interpretations of the Mystery, Inc., gang, but, this variation is unlike any other. It's fun to see the characters do something different; you can only watch so many unmaskings before it gets tired. Plus, some interesting plot twists occur, and the artwork is great.

However, the violence is even more gruesome this time around, there's just as much profanity if not more than in the last volume, and some crude moments appear, such as references to flatulence and other bodily fu

What’s better than a post-apocalyptic sci-fi action thriller with genetically-modified creatures taking over the world? The answer, of course, is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi action thriller with genetically-modified creatures taking over the world starring Scooby Doo.

Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, and Dale Eaglesham’s “Scooby Apocalypse, Volume 2” continues the gory good fun of the first six issues in the compilation of issues 7 - 12. It’s a thoroughly entertaining series that is absolutely not for

Velma, Velma, VELMA! *shakes head slowly* You gotta fix this, girl!

And you gotta love the business man that is 100% based on Trump, down to the red toupee, blond trophy wife, and name in gold letters on the outside of his high rise!

What seemed to be a decent story, is turning to crap pretty quick I think. Where do I even start? Well first the art needs to stop changing and at times it's within the middle of a scene. This whole book needs a new editor. It's really choppy at times. Also, the obvious reference to Trump isn't amusing or creative at all, it's just stupid and doesn't work. I'm not sure how this comic book is still lasting and not sure I even want the third volume anymore. For someone who's seen nearly all the in ...more

3.5/5

Some decent enough character moments but honestly not enough happened in this book. The story was advanced ever so slowly and it felt like the creators weren't sure where to take a very original idea after the initial conception.

I'm curious as to where the story goes from here but after the last issue of volume 1 I was hoping for some outright amazing development both character and plot. I didn't really get either. As I said, not a great deal happened and at least one member of the group

Okay, so this isn't high literature, but it's still fun to read. The issues I had with the first volume are fixed. The repetition is pretty much gone as is the bitching between Velma and Daphne. You can also see them becoming friends, which is nice. The art's gotten smoother as well. But while the issues from the first volume have been fixed, there are some whole new ones here. The writers completely skip over what could be extremely emotional moments. For example, (view spoiler) ...more

Now that the shock of the concept has worn off, this book settles into being basically more of the same. The Scoobies are still fighting against the apocalyptic monsters, as they try to get Velma to a location where she might be able to effect a cure. We get a couple near-standalone issues (the escape from the super store, a hospital, Velma runs away), although they do build together to a cliffhanger in Seattle. Character development moves forward a bit, though it doesn't run very deep, as every ...more

I read the first volume and liked enough to try volume 2. Unfortunately, not a lot happens in volume 2 and I think I'm done with this twist on some favorite characters. In this volume the reader gets; ever-changing artwork, not all of it good, Velma's embarrassing dream, where she imagines herself dressed like Red Sonja, and more on one of Velma's brothers who is a sad, moldy stereotype. Seems Giffen and DeMatteis had a good idea to start with but didn't know where to take it or when to end it.

Scooby and the gang have a run-in with a hospital that might be alive and meet one of Velma's brothers.

I'm disappointed in this second volume. It's so episodic that nothing happens. Maybe Velma's brother will change that but, since he seems to be just a cartoon version of Trump, I don't have faith in it. The artists have changed in this volume and I don't like the art as much. And it needs more Scooby and less dialogue (so much dialogue, much of it repetitious). I still think this is a great ide

In a world where dramatic one liners are the norm.

Stuck in a Mall-Mart Superstore the group who has survived the world changing nanite plague are surrounded by a swarm of seemingly mindless and dangerous creatures who were probably humans once upon a time. With Fred's leg injured in a gloriously bad way survival has just become that much harder as the crew makes their way to find medicines that can stave off infections. With mutants running wild and the nanite plague seemingly altering the laws

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We need some help from you now...

In this case, he's running headfirst into the fight to save his friends from rampaging monsters. The series continues, and continues to improve. Here, we see a continuation of the one-off Scrappy-Doo stories... Scrappy and his gang are tearing their way through a world full of monsters in hopes of tracking down Velma, to upgrade their cybernetic implants, and Scooby - for revenge. Why revenge?

This volume was straight down the middle for me. After the first volume, I wanted to continue the story, but I felt it didn't deliver fully.

We continue following the gang, but the story felt very jumpy. One instance, was the ending of the first issue and its transition to the next. Also, Velma's storu could have added more bulk. Kinda pulled me out and I felt like a good story was missed.

I felt that way throughout. Like the story was pushed a long quickly to reach the end, but with ve

I want to love these, but I just don't. I can't put my finger on my exact problem with these volumes, but somehow they are just missing the mark. Volume 2 is much better than the first one, and the writing has improved, but they are still too repetitive and a little boring. I will say I love the look and art of these books- beefy Fred and hipster Shaggy are perfection.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

Pretty much everything I said in my review of volume one applies here. The only major difference is the art: Howard Porter's been moved to doing the art for the covers of the single issues while various artists work on the interior. The new art ranges from okay to very good.

The pace of Vol 2 is very well-done following Vol 1. I still have the same annoyance with the dialogue but it wasn't quite as bad this time. I especially loved the subtle Trump-mockery. Fantastic. Will definitely continue to Vol 3.

This series is addicting. It combines my love of Scooby Doo with my love of the end of the world troup. I like how the characters are framed and how the story line unfolds. This might be my favorite graphic novel series

It just keeps getting better. I love the easter eggs hidden through out the panels. Rufus looked similar to another power hungry man in America...hmmm I wonder who that could be?😉

My enjoyment of this volume was marred mostly by the constant changes in art style. I now realize that I REALLY loved the style in the first volume, but this one kept going back and forth with different artists and their slight changes kept rubbing me the wrong way.

For example, they now took every possible chance to over-sexualize the only three female characters available. And I am aware that this is “normal” for comics, but I won’t ever enjoy it. Also, this is freaking Scooby Doo, I do expect

Couldn’t finish. I really liked vol. 1 but this one was a chore to get through and I stopped halfway. It felt inconsistent and jumped in time a lot. In one panel Shaggy is worried that Scooby hasn’t come back yet and then in the very next panel Scooby is standing with them and there’s no explanation. No yay! Scoob’s back! They just continue like nothing happened.

This is a series that I was really excited for, but I don't like the way that this is moving. I think that I need to possibly stop this series--there is a lot of potential, but the weird plot twist really turned me off.

I can really do without Scrappy Doo. He is a drag on every single iteration of the series. Still, this is so fun. The addition of Velma's brother as a Trump stand in is pretty genius.
