Until loyal Scooby-Doo fan, Shaggydoo informed me I was unaware that the most recent issue of SCOOBY DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? (#4) contained a story of mine. It's not a new story. In fact it's a reprint of a very old one going back to SCOOBY-DOO #17 from December 1998. "The Ghost of Christmas Presents" is actually the first Scooby-Doo story I ever wrote. At the time I thought it was going to be a one time deal. Little did I know that it would lead to more than a decade and well over 100 more stories featuring the Mystery Inc. gang. SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? #4 actually came out over a week ago, but you should still be able to find it at a comic book store near you or wherever you find comics sold.
Yesterday I received my copy of MAD SCIENTIST #22 which contains a cut paper collage portrait of Boris Karloff as the Mummy which I made as well as a 12 page article I wrote on my favorite Hammer movie, BRIDES OF DRACULA. If that doesn't sell you, this issue also contains artwork by Bernie Wrightson, Don Marquez, and a great Varan cover by award winning artist, Bob Eggleton as well as articles on VARAN THE UNBELIEVABLE, THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, and a terrific interview with Larry Blamire, the man who brought you THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA and TRAIL OF THE SCREAMING FOREHEAD.
I highly recommend this magazine and would do so even if I were not a contributor. In fact it was because I thought so highly of MAD SCIENTIST that I began contributing to it. Ordering information can be found at the MAD SCIENTIST website. Tell them I sent you.
