Marvel-ous Mondays: "Three Ghosts Too Many" by Zeigler and Spiegle

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! In 1977, Marvel Comics, the House of Ideas, was fast becoming the House of Licenses! Besides Robert E. Howard, Star Wars, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Godzilla, Shogun Warriors, KISS, etc., etc., they also nabbed the rights to publish comics based on Hanna-Barbera's catalog of cartoon characters! Coolest part of that deal? We got a Scooby-Doo comic with art by Dan Spiegle! "Three Ghosts Too Many," written by Bill Zeigler, is awfully close to seeing a SD cartoon on paper. Grab a Scooby Snack and trip on back to July 1977, baby!

  1. My daughter and I love watching Scooby Doo together (classic 70's only) I just picked up this very issue for her and gave it to her as part of her birthday.

    1. Now that is just far out, Kevin! My daughter was always a big SD fan, too! Keep up the good work, Dad! :D

    This was an adaptation of a TV episode that premiered the previous year. I've seen this in reruns many times.

    1. I haven't watched a SD episode in so long, that didn't even register with me, hf! Thanks for the info!

  3. Sure wish DC would reprint all of the Gold Key/Marvel/Archie Dan Spiegle Scooby material. Thanks for the post.
