If you thought the first year of Lego Dimensions brought together more characters and franchises than you thought humanly possible, wait until you get a load of what TT Games has in store for 2016. The first official trailer for Lego Dimensions: Year Two (my titling, not theirs) arrived today and with it came a wealth of unexpected surprises. Yes, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle are back again, but the portal has opened in new worlds featuring Harry Potter, Teen Titans Go!, Adventure Time, the A-Team, Goonies, Gremlins, the Powerpuff Girls and like a bajillion others. Lego is not playing around.
What's more, every single new set is 100% compatible with everything that's already been released. You know what that means? You can have BA Baracus drive the Mystery Machine. You can have the Joker and Voldemort fight over who has a pastier complexion. You can have Beast Boy and Mowgli take down Beetlejuice. Dogs and cats living together; mass hysteria!
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.
While we still don't know exactly when Cartoon Network's upcoming relaunch of Powerpuff Girls is going to premiere on television, it's definitely coming soon, and we know that because the promotion for the series is in full swing. It was just last week that the network unveiled a clip from the first episode, and now, we've got a look at the theme song.
Specifically, an extended version of the show's opening sequence, with a brand new theme song, "Who's Got The Power?" by Seattle's Tacocat, just in case you wanted a reason to get pumped up for the return of what might actually be the single best superhero team of the '90s. Give it a watch!
While the Powerpuff Girls TV show has been over for nearly a decade now, and the rebooted version has yet to launch, fans of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup can still check out new adventures from the Girls in IDW's Powerpuff Girls Super Smash-Up series. As the title would suggest, the Powerpuff Girls have been introduced to the worlds of other Cartoon Network series, and issue #4 sees the Girls entering the world of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. Check out our exclusive preview!
Team-up comics are the best. The simple fact is that if one superhero (or team of superheroes) is great, then two is going to be twice as great, and books like DC Comics Presents, Marvel Team-Up, and Brave and the Bold have shown that this is exactly the case. Now it's time for the Powerpuff Girls to prove this point yet again.
Following up on the events of IDW's big Super Secret Crisis War, this week sees the release of Powerpuff Girls Super Smash-Up #1, where writer/artist Derek Charm sends Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup on a trip across the Cartoon Network multiverse to team up with other characters. The first issue involves a trip to Dexter's Lab, but before they get to that, they've got to deal with Fuzzy Lumpkins and some stampeding zoo animals.
With New York Comic-Con coming up this weekend, many publishers are saving up their big announcements for the Javits Center. IDW Publishing, however, has decided to get the jump on everyone by releasing their first big announcement a few days early, and it's one that we're definitely looking forward to. Following on the success of Super Secret Crisis War, the Cartoon Network crossover event, IDW has announced Powerpuff Girls Super Smash-Up, a new ongoing series that will team Townsville's favorite heroines up with Cartoon Network shows like Dexter's Laboratory, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Johnny Bravo and more -- and the series will be written and drawn by Derek Charm.
To find out more about the series, scheduled to kick off this January, we spoke to Charm about more about the premise of the series, which characters we can look forward to, and whether the Talking Dog will finally get his starring role.
I watched a lot of Cartoon Network in the '90s (and the 2000s, and the 2010s, but that's beside the point), and I distinctly remember thinking that if there was one thing that could really improve shows like Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack and Dexter's Laboratory, it would be throwing all the characters together into one big fight against robots, preferably while hanging out at San Diego's Comic-Con International.
Fortunately for me, my dreams have once again made reality thanks to Derek Charm's variant cover for IDW's upcoming Cartoon Network crossover, Super Secret Crisis War! Not only will the series tell the tale of a crossover between the shows' heroes and villlains written by Charm and legendary writer Louise Simonson with art by Charm, but there's a SDCC variant cover featuring characters from the shows engaging in that most time-honored Comic-Con tradition: Cosplay! Check out an exclusive preview 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!
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!
