Angry Birds Comics Rovio IDW Main
IDW/Rovio

The Angry Birds. The green pigs. Two factions locked in never-ending combat. Their enduring stories of sacrifice and struggle have captured the hearts and imaginations of the world. We know their suffering. We are them. Now, those stories can be further told in comic form.

Indeed, IDW Publishing has announced it's teaming up with developers Rovio to make Angry Birds a comic that will debut this June with stories from writers including Jeff Parker (Batman '66) and Paul Tobin (Bandette).

Dexter Meets The Powerpuff Girls, But Only On Derek Charm’s Amazing ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’ #1 Cover

Dexter's Laboratory #1 RI, IDW

I don't think the renewed interest in Cartoon Network's '90s jams could be any more welcome than it already is, but today, IDW has stepped up their game by giving us the crossover we've always dreamed of... sort of. For their retailer incentive cover of the upcoming Dexter's Laboratory #1, artist Derek Charm has drawn up the historic meeting between everyone's favorite pint-sized, inexplicably accented mad scientist and the Powerpuff Girls.

Obviously, the girls are no stranger to labs, having been born of an experiment involving the mysterious Chemical X. Still, unless you count that one Cartoon Network promo from the '90s where everyone goes to the movies, I'm pretty sure this is the first time they've hung out. Check out our exclusive reveal of the full cover below!

‘Black Dynamite’ #1 Is Gonna Make Everything All Right [Preview]

Black Dynamite 1 Preview
IDW

If you've seen the 2009 blaxploitation parody Black Dynamite or the Adult Swim cartoon of the same name, then I don't really need to tell you why a new, four-issue IDW Publishing miniseries from writer Brian Ash, artists Ron Wimberly and Sal Buscema, and colorist JM Ringuet is exciting. The very idea is exciting on its face.

But if somehow you aren't familiar with the explosive franchise, let me just tell you this: Black Dynamite is a love machine who can't stand to see jive-ass suckas dealing smack to the kids and is also not fond of his kung-fu being interrupted.

The Gang Learns Reading Is Fun And Potentially Life-Threatening In ‘My Little Pony’ #15 [Preview]

My Little Pony #15, IDW

It wasn't that long ago that the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic animated series did an episode all about the joys of reading. It's a good lesson for the kids, but it does raise an interesting question about just where you go with literary themes once that's done -- especially in the MLP comic, which is presumably already being read by children who enjoy, you know, reading. Well, if you're Heather Nuhfer, Amy Mebberson and Heather Breckel, then the answer is simple: You tell a story all about how the joy of reading presents its own life-threatening (but fun and adventurous) dangers!

Comics Alliance Reader Choice Awards: Best Writer/Artist [Poll]

ComicsAlliance Reader Choice Awards

Derek Charm On ‘The Powerpuff Girls’ And The Spring Break Monster Invasion Of Townsville [Interview]

Powerpuff Girls #7, IDW

The Powerpuff Girls have been one of my favorite superhero teams since I was in high school, so I have been exicted beyond all reasoning by the renaissance they seem to be undergoing lately. Not only is there a new special set to air later this month, but IDW has revived the Powerpuff Girls comic series, and they're handing two issues over to writer-artist Derk Charm for a story of the Spring Break Monster Invasion.

Charm is a favorite here at ComicsAlliance, so we spoke to him about his connection to the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, why he wanted to attack the city of Townsville with an army of monsters, and how it compares to his other work on the decidedly more adult-oriented Trip Fantastic.

‘Rocky And Bullwinkle’ Returns To Comics In New IDW Series By Evanier And Langridge

Rocky And Bullwinkle IDW lede
IDW

Rocky and Bullwinkle have had a few comics series to their names over the past few decades (often with the two characters' names transposed in the title), from publishers including Dell, Gold Key, Charlton and Marvel.

But never before have the characters gotten a series with the creative pedigree of IDW's new Rocky & Bullwinkle series by writer Mark Evanier (Groo the Wanderer and lots of biographical work on Jack Kirby) and artist Roger Langridge (Popeye, The Muppet Show). Stephanie Buscema will also provide variant covers. The series hits comic store shelves this March.

Heroes In A Nutshell: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection’

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 25th Anniversary Collection

While Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is in the midst of a creative renaissance at IDW, with the current series making our own Best Comics of 2013 list, the publisher continues to release reprints and collections of stories that had been unavailable for years. Recently, IDW released a new hardcover edition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection, which was originally published in 2009 (the actual 25th anniversary) through co-creator Kevin Eastman’s Heavy Metal publishing house, re-mastering the artwork and providing some stories with color for the first time.

Unlike ComicsAlliance editor Caleb Goellner -- who seems to bleed green -- I’ve only read a few issues of the new series. I really, genuinely liked it, but felt like my memories of the original comics, if not the comics themselves, were better. For that same reason, I haven’t bought a single issue of IDW’s Classics reprints; just saw enough of the first collection to know that I didn't like the cold digital coloring. Really, I didn’t want to see TMNT with new eyes; I wanted it to remain great in my recollection, rather than diminished by the reality. I didn’t want to find out that literally the most important comic in my life was reduced to trash because of the passage of time and changes in perception.

Curiosity got the better of me.
