It's a big month for anniversaries. Doctor Who has turned 50. Mystery Science Theater 3000 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.
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.
Considering Troy Little kicked off IDW's new The Powerpuff Girls comic book series with Mojo Jojo tooling around in the Power Loader from Aliens, this week's The Powerpuff Girls #2 is hardly a hard-sell around these parts. It appears that the mad monkey is pulling a 180, though, as this month he'll be confounding fankind with the choice to inhale the mysterious "Antidote X." That's right, Mojo Jojo says he just wants to be Jojo again.
The City of Townsville was the setting of what is unquestionably, unequivocally one of the greatest superhero cartoons of all time, and this week, The Powerpuff Girls are back in an all-new ongoing series from IDW and writer/artist Troy Little!
I'm someone who had a PPG poster on his wall since sometime in the late '90s up until last year, so needless to say, I could not be more excited about the new title. If, however, you need a little more convincing that this is a train you want to be on, then perhaps you should consider that this is a comic where three superpowered kindergarteners battle it out with a talking monkey riding around in the Power Loader from Aliens. Check out a preview after the cut!
If his Tumblr page is any indication, Iros Yan is a pretty big fan of both the Avengers and the Powerpuff Girls. He's also fond of combining the two, and a quick look through his Tumblr shows that he's been creating various comics and illustrations depicting the Avengers in Powerpuff Girls style art for some time. But he may have just outdone himself with a recreation of the Powerpuf
