Following the launch of a newly re-imagined animated series on Cartoon Network, The Powerpuff Girls will star in a series from IDW Publishing. The comic will follow the new adventures of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup based on the animation revival. The comic will work as an extension of the cartoon and will be penned by staff writers Jake Goldman and Haley Mancini (who also provides the voice of arch-villainess Princess Morebucks). Rounding out the creative team is artist Derek Charm (Powerpuff Girls, Super Secret Crisis War, Star Trek: Starfleet Academy).
With crime rates at a low, the first issue finds the Powerpuff Girls fallen off the public’s radar as a result… making this the perfect time for arch nemesis Mojo Jojo to make a comeback and take the town by storm!
“The Powerpuff Girls and IDW - - a perfect combo!” saysPowerpuff Girls editor Sarah Gaydos. “Look forward to more fun with the Girls, as Derek, Haley, and Jake take us back to the city of Townsville!
Issue one will feature a subscription variant by artist Paulina Ganucheau (Dexter’s Laboratory, My Little Pony) and each retailer incentive cover will feature cover art by a Powerpuff Girls animator.
From Townsville, USA to your local comic shop, Powerpuff Girls #1 launches this July!
