When the evil Aku, Vilgax, Mandark and Mojo Jojo join forces in an axis of awfulness, their respective nemeses are going to have to team up to stop them, right?

That’s the idea behind IDW’s new series Super Secret Crisis War, which brings together Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory; Samurai Jack; The Powerpuff Girls; Ben 10, and Ed, Edd and Eddy to form a super-team of characters with different skills, backgrounds and art styles. The six-issue event, written by Louise Simonson and with art by Derek Charm, starts in June.

“I love writing group books! So obviously, Super Secret Crisis War! is my dream job!” Simonson said in an IDW press release. “Even researching the series is fun — who doesn’t love watching cartoons!? Especially excellent, award-winning cartoon series like Samurai Jack, Ben 10, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Ed, Edd & Eddy. But the very best part is seeing the art and design so beautifully realized by the wonderful Derek Charm.”

In July, the event will expand to include characters from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, The Grim Adventures of Billy and MandyJohnny BravoCodename: Kids Next Door, and Cow and Chicken, who will appear in tie-in one-shots. They’ll be written by Ivan Cohen, Kate Leth, Erik Burnham, Scott Peterson and Jim Zubkavich.

Charm got his feet wet with CN crossover art with a variant cover of Dexter’s Laboratory #1 featuring the Powerpuff Girls, which he’s been writing and illustrating at IDW as well. We thought that’d be as close as we got to a crossover tale, but it turns out far greater plans were already in motion.
