The Scooby Gang will face off against real monsters in a techno-futuristic Scooby Apocalypse, coming soon from DC Comics, Justice League 3001's Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, and Howard Porter, and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee.
Over at TV Guide, they've got a first look at the first issue.
"We knew it would be controversial," Lee said on updating the look. "All these people saying, 'it's horrible, [Shaggy]'s a d-bag,' and I say, 'wait...you look like this guy!' It's an unusual look, but it's to show he's visually distinct from the others, and not part of the mainstream."
Those meddling kids—Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and their dog, Scooby-Doo—get more ghost-debunking than they bargained for when faced with a fundamental change in their world. The apocalypse has happened. Old rules about logic no longer apply. The creatures of the night are among us, and the crew of the Magical Mystery Machine has to fight to survive—because in the apocalyptic badlands of the near-future, the horrors are real!
The first issue hits the stands on May 25, the same day as DC launches their Rebirth publishing initiative.
