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.
Kate Leth is a kind of comics renaissance woman: web cartoonist; retail leader; self-publisher; artist-for-hire contributing to Locke & Key, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and numerous projects for BOOM! Studios; and, most recently, a ComicsAlliance guest contributor. But this spring, Leth's taking on a new role. With Adventure Time: Seeing Red, the third original graphic novel based on the popular Cartoon Network series, Leth's taken on her first job writing comics -- and she's using the opportunity to take Marceline the Vampire Queen and Jake the Dog on a weekend trip to the Nightosphere.
To find out more about Leth and her new OGN with artist Zachary Sterling, we spoke to Leth about approaching comics as a critic, retailer and creator at the same time, her love of Adventure Time, and why she identifies with Marceline as "an angsty teen at heart."
While there's no word yet on whether or not Beware the Batman will return to the air, fans of the Cartoon Network series now have something to look forward to, as its been revealed that the first Blu-ray collection will be released Tuesday, February 18, and will include never before seen episodes.
Between all of their brawls -- both with criminals and each other -- the cast of Teen Titans Go! channels more than their collective share of aggression. On tonight's new "Breakfast Cheese" episode on Cartoon Network, Starfire sees how it's affecting her friends and suggests a (perhaps) better alternative. After all, what does violence solve? Furthermore, what does cheese have to do with it? Fans will be able to see if the heroine's proposed lives of peace and nonviolence stick tonight, but in the meantime, you can catch our clip from the latest episode of TTG! after the jump.
Last week Cartoon Network revealed plans to air a brand new Powerpuff Girls special in January. The special, titled "Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed," in no way involves series creator Craig McCracken. As such, it features a completely reimagined look for Townsville's heroes, as the Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup get the CG treatment. While the show has a different look, it does reunite the original voice cast, and along for the ride this time is Ringo Starr, debuting a brand new song and giving voice to the "flamboyant mathemetician Fibonacci Sequins," a character with one of the best names I've come across in any show in years.
Cartoon Network has now released a commercial for the upcoming special, debuting the first footage we've seen, and you can check it out below.
I've got good news, bad news and strange news. Which do you guys want first?
The good? OK. A new CGI-ish Powerpuff Girls special, titled "Dance Pantsed," will debut on Cartoon Network January 20 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time. The bad news is that show creator Craig McCracken doesn't seem to have anything to do with it. The strange news: It will prominently feature former Beatle Ringo Starr.
The team that brought fans Adventure Time Original Graphic Novel Vol. 1 Playing With Fire is back with an all new tale that pits the royalty of Ooo against the most intense challenges of all: Video games from BMO's binary brain. This Wednesday writer Danielle Corsetto and artist Zack Sterling's Adventure Time Original Graphic Novel Vol. 2 Pixel Princesses from Boom! Studios arrives in comic shops, delivering 160 pages of black and white action as partying princesses are forced to work together if they hope to survive offending Finn and Jake's offended video game console/roommate. How did the team of Corsetto and Sterling work to put the princesses in just the right amount of peril on their second straight AT OGN team-up? ComicsAlliance got in touch with the duo to find out.
It's a big month for anniversaries. Doctor Who has turned 50. Mystery Science Theater3000 is 25. One anniversary that doesn't seem to be getting as much attention is the one that might make all of us feel the oldest. The Powerpuff Girls have officially been around for 15 years, debuting on Cartoon Network on November 18, 1998. If fans count creator Craig McCracken's original "Whoopass Girls" concept that he created while in college at CalArts and debuted in 1992 as "Whoopass Stew!," though, the team is old enough to drink.
