While on the trail of the mysterious Science Ghoul, Scooby-Doo is accidentally duplicated, and joins the team! But just who - or what - is Scooby-Two? Plus, the gang investigates a haunted clubhouse, and comes face-to-face with a ghost coach on the baseball field!

This is one of those things I'm really only listing because I really like the cover. Very simple, effective even at a small size, makes you wonder about the story. I'm actually not a huge fan of any incarnation of the Scooby-Doo cartoon, but I pick this up every few months when I see an issue and enjoy it. The character designs are nicer than the limited animation and annoying voices of the cartoon, and the stories are sometimes fun, with several complete stories in every issue.
He's not in this issue, but I especially like Joe Staton's occasional work for the title (see some other recent issues). Also pretty impressive that it's still going strong after 108 issues. LOONEY TUNES is also going strong at #138, but oddly though I like those cartoons I haven't liked the comic as much when I've sampled it.
