This was a fun comic! Scott Jeralds's artwork was top-notch as always and faithful to the classic Hanna-Barbera styles. I enjoyed the call-backs to the "Wacky Races," especially how the Ant-Hill Mob stopped being gangsters so they could watch over Penelope, and joking about how the Hooded Claw would go into a tornado-like spin when changing in and out of a disguise (I could hear that old Hanna-Barbera drumroll sound effect in my mind with each spin.)
Finally glad that Sneekly got his comeuppance. Now Penelope is probably going to date Peter Perfect freely.
It's surprising that he gave himself up rather willingly too. It seems that all his failed attempts to kill Penelope have worn him out and now he doesn't have enough energy left to resist being arrested and sent to prison.

Any one else think that if Penelope gets a movie in the HB cinematic universe, Steve Carell should do the voice of Sneekly/Hooded Claw. He does a nearly flawless Paul Lynde impression. In fact his hilarious scene as Uncle Arthur was the only good thing about the bewitched movie.
