If you thought Mojo Jojo relinquishing his capacity for supervillainy in IDW's Powerpuff Girls #2 was a shocker, next weeks' Powerpuff Girls #3 by Troy Little and colorist Jeremy Colwell will continue to blow your mind. It turns out that nearly every villain Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup ever protected Townsville from has also turned over a new leaf and insist on honoring the once sole guardians of the city. IDW's provided us with an early look at the confounding events of the issue before it arrives on November 27, but we're still stumped as to Little's maniacal endgame for the PPGs.

When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con, every publisher approaches the show a little bit differently. Whether they house cosplay contests, interactive displays, photo ops with talent, creator signings and/or a whole lot of purchasable product, SDCC booths are an opportunity for the publishers that can attend to make a big impression on one of the most attended pop culture gatherings of the year. You can get a sampling of what publishers like Marvel, DC, Archie, Boom!, IDW, 2000 AD, Dark Horse, Image, Fantagraphics, Oni and others were up to on the show floor of this year's SDCC after the cut.
Darwyn Cooke's next adaptation of Richard Stark a.k.a. Donald Westlake's Parker crime novel series has been confirmed. Slayground, the fourth of Cooke's Parker books following The Hunter in 2009, The Outfit in 2010 (which won Cooke an Eisner for best writer) and The Score in 2012 (nominated for an Eisner this year for Best Adaptation) will arrive in stores and on digital devices in December.
Wild Blue Yonder isn't the book I expected it to be. That's not a knock on what it is; it's just that I thought from the title and the cover that I was in for a very specific kind of story, something that was slightly more focused on big sweeping airplanes and slightly less apocalyptic, and it turns out that wasn't the case. Maybe it's just me and my love of being right all the time, but usually when that happens, it's a disappointment. When I got through what Mike Raicht, Zach Howard and Austin Harrison are doing with their first issue, however, it was exactly the opposite.
This might not be the book I expected, but it's definitely one that's worth picking up.
Two heroes are down as Shredder advances his plot to take New York City in next week's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #23. Writers Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman's "City Fall" storyline kicked off last month, giving fans a taste of what kind of shocking transformation may be in store for one of the Green machines, and this month artist Mateus Santolouco (along with alternate cover artists Dan Duncan, Andy Kuhn, Ben Bates, Ross Campbell and Dave Wachter) turns up the tension as a team short on allies prepares to confront multiple foes.
There's lots to see in today's Link Ink, after the jump!
