Scooby-Doo Meets the Easy Breather

Easy Breather with Scooby gang

Notice: Scooby-Doo and related characters are the property of Warner Bros., and the Easy Breather is my own creation. Not having watched What’s New, Scooby-Doo? or Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, I have modernized the design of the Mystery Machine, among other things. I also gave the Easy Breather a belt with a smartphone pouch, which she had no need to wear in the webcomic.

Because the Easy Breather has been perceived so pejoratively by her readers, I am not sure I want to return to webcomics as a storytelling medium. And before anyone asks: I have illustrated this story with images rendered in Poser 7, as opposed to traditional art media. Having lost access to the Poser 4 animal figures, I have based Scooby-Doo on the DAZ Millennium Dog. The human characters are still based on Poser 4 models, though.

This story, written in the spirit of The New Scooby-Doo Movies (CBS, 1972–74), is dedicated to the memory of William Hanna, Joseph Barbera, Don Messick, Iwao Takamoto and everyone else who made Scooby-Doo such an iconic character. Because this story involves tobacco, but no actual smoking takes place, it is intended for mature fans of Scooby-Doo. For more about the Scooby-Doo franchise, visit Scoobypedia.
