  1. Natasha

    I love all the weird perspectives in this arc :)

  2. Francisco

    Why do I have the Scooby Doo theme song playing in my head? ;-)

  3. Jared

    OMG! Nice Caruso reference. Now all you need to do is to blast some “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

  4. Oldskoolguitar

    YEAAAAAAHHHHHHH! *guitar windmill*

  5. Mark Stokes

    Beware of things that go pun in the night! Love the worm’s-eye view panels.

  6. Francisco

    I can’t believe believe I missed the CSI: Miami link.

  7. Chris

    Natasha & Mark: Glad you’re digging the worm’s-eye view! DadaHyena had an interesting insight about the perspective shifts a couple strips back… ;)
    Francisco: But now, wouldn’t you pay top dollar to see a CSI/Scooby-Doo crossover? My mind is reeling.
    Jared & Oldskoolguitar: It was all I could do to keep from wailing out that song aloud while I was drawing that last panel :D

  8. Francisco

    A CSI:Miami/Scooby Doo crossover? It’s a good idea. I’m now wondering if I remember enough about the characters of both shows to write on.

  9. Francisco

    Sorry, that should be “write it”.

  10. Bob

    Freddy: “Horatio, you and Thelma check out the downstairs. Shaggy, you and Scooby look in the attic. Daphne and I’ll check out the master bedroom. *wink *wink

    Horatio: Right. We’ll spread out….(glasses on)…like Daphne’s legs.” (YEEEEEEEAAAAAHH!!)

  11. Chris

    And Bob makes his triumphant return to drama! Francisco, hopefully you can help Bob class up his act. ;D

  12. Francisco

    This is what I’ve written so far:

    [We see a suburban street in Miami. The camera pans away from the houses and we see a cartoon-like green van on the street. Shots ring out, a middle-aged man dives in the back of the van and the van speeds off.]

    Dispatcher: Shots fired near 1321 Maple Avenue, all units respond.

    [We see the same street later. The camera is focused on one particular house, its front yard and the bit of the street in front of the house. The CSI: Miami team are scouring the site for clues.]

    Boa Vista: [Approaches Caine] I found some hairs [holds up cartoon-like brown hairs]. I’ll have to get them back to the lab to confirm but I believe that they’re dog hairs.

    Caine: [Looks at the hairs]

    Delko: [Approaches Caine] I found some orange fibres [holds out some cartoon-like orange fibres].

    Caine: [Looks at the fibres]

    Delko: Hey, H! Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

    Caine: Yes. [Puts on dark glasses] It looks like we’re going to have to stock up on Scooby Snacks!

    [Title sequence]

  13. Chris

    I didn’t think you’d actually be crazy enough to do this! ;) Let us know when David Caruso calls, and remember l’il ol’ Odori Park when you’re famous! :D

  14. Francisco

    Once the idea was suggested it took a hold of my brain. When Bob wrote his version it felt so wrong that I had to write something that was closer to what it would be like. I’m not sure if I woulld finish it though.

  15. SpilledInkGuy

    Love the worm’s eye view here, Mr. W!
    I think it really adds to the sense of tension!

  16. Puck

    ……. See, when I saw “Caruso”, I thought “Enrico Caruso”, and from there on was just so horribly confused.

    Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also
    am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some
    nice practices and we are looking to swap methods with
    others, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
