"Magilla's Guerrillas"

So according to D.C Comics' latest announcement, they're planning to "reboot" a few familiar Hanna-Barbera faces in some unfamiliar territory - and as usual, it's got everybody talking about it.

Now I'm not going to join in the arguing backlash discussions myself, but their talk about plans for a Johnny Quest / Space Ghost crossover brought to mind this rather interesting Magilla Gorilla story, which appeared in Issue #6 of  the Cartoon Network magazine in 1999 (in the UK).

Personally, I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes to crossover storylines, provided that they're done logically and if it's a "in-universe" scenario (aka; characters created by the same people or studio). After all, D.C Comics also produced the Scooby-Doo Team Up comic book line from 2013, and personally I would like to read more content like that - with someone other than the Great Dane himself, obviously.

Plus, not every "reboot" has to be dark or gritty, or somehow "reinvent" the characters completely. Change can be acceptable, so long as you don't go too overboard. And writer Mike Carlin seems to have done just fine with this particular story, thankyouverymuch.

And on top of all that, it's the Year of the Monkey in all the more reason to share this then!
