"Mucha Lucha!" in "JPA"

I BOUGHT Jam-Packed Action back in 2004 and have only just got around to reading it...there's probably a good reason for that.

This DC-produced comic digest features four short stories adapted from WB animated series Teen Titans, Scooby-Doo!, Xiaolin Showdown and Mucha Lucha! (the reason I bought it).

All the images are taken from the original animated episodes and unimaginatively laid out on the page. Despite the lack of creativity on display, the Mucha Lucha! story's kinda interesting: Richochet enters a tag team tournament to win a reproduction mask of his hero El Rey. Along the way, he goes to the gym and has his head shrunk to help him win his matches (don't ask). It's the pick of the four tales in this book, but that's faint praise.
