With a brand-new Powerpuff Girls series headed to Cartoon Network this spring, this seems like the perfect time to gather some Powerpuff fan art for your enjoyment. Ever since Professor Utonium accidently created them in his lab in 1998, the Powerpuff Girls have been the heroes of Townsville and some of the most influential superheroes to originate on television rather than comics.
The girls comprise a perfectly balanced team despite the small number (and small stature). Buttercup is the violent tomboy, Bubbles is the sunny girly-girl, and Blossom, as the leader, falls between those extremes. Add the Professor as an Alfred figure and the Mayor of Townsville as their Commissioner Gordon, and you have a perfect little superhero premise.
The City of Townsville, as you'll know if you read last month's ThePowerpuff Girls#7, by CA favorite Derek Charm, is quite possibly facing its darkest moment ever. Well, except for that time Princess Morbucks made all crime legal. And when the villains formed an evil super-group called the Beat-Alls. And, you know, that time that they went into the future where Him took over and destroyed the town and killed everyone, that was probably the worst.
Look: It's pretty dark is what I'm saying. But as a massive monster invasion led by the new King of Monster Island devastates the town and the Girls been driven to give up on defending their home, it's important to remember that it's always darkest before the dawn! Maybe, just maybe, they can rally in next week's ThePowerpuff Girls #8, and if you can't wait to see how, good news: We've got a preview that you can check out right below!
We've been excited about the amazing Derek Charm taking a shot at writing and drawing ThePowerpuff Girls ever since IDW first announced his two-part story, and now, we are on the eve of Monster Day. PPG #7 is out next week, and with it, the City of Townsville comes under attack -- sort of -- by the residents of Monster Island, heckbent on having a good time and probably destroying huge swaths of real estate in the process.
Obviously, the Utonium Triplets are going to have something to say about that, but how do you stop a monster invasion when all they really want is to have a good time? It's pretty exciting, but if you still need more to get pumped about it, check out a preview below!
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.
If you've been keeping up with IDW's Powerpuff Girls series, then you already know that the first arc has been built around that sinister simian, Mojo Jojo, finally realizing that his life of crime was getting him nowhere and requesting that Professor Utonium take away the nightmarish burden of sentience so that he could live out his days in peace as a normal monkey. Well, I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who have, y'know, never read a superhero comic book before, but it turns out that was all a dastardly ploy!
In next week's spine-tingling Powerpuff Girls #6, writer/artist Troy Little reveals the evil machinations that have led to the potential destruction of the city of Townsville. But you, dear readers, don't have to wait quite that long to get in on the action. Check out a preview of the issue below!
The chief spokesman for the former camp, Dennis Barger, Jr. of WonderWorld Comics in Michigan, said the cover sexualized young girls and was just not appropriate for children, who are the future of the comics industry. He's got a point, but whether it's the Powerpuff Girls cover he should be going after is debatable.
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!
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.
