If you’ve been online lately, you’ve probably noticed that The Powerpuff Girls are back in action in a big way. After the launch of the re-imagined animated series on Cartoon Network, IDW Publishing is relaunching The Power Puff Girls comics. The comic will be an extension of the cartoon and even penned by staff writers Jake Goldman and Haley Mancini. Haley also provides the voice of arch-villainess Princess Morebucks. Derek Charm, the artist from the Super Secret Crisis War and previous Powerpuff Girls comics, returns as well.
With crime rates at a low, the first issue finds the Powerpuff Girls fallen off the public’s radar as a result… making this the perfect time for arch nemesis Mojo Jojo to make a comeback and take the town by storm!
“The Powerpuff Girls and IDW – – a perfect combo!” saysPowerpuff Girls editor Sarah Gaydos. “Look forward to more fun with the Girls, as Derek, Haley, and Jake take us back to the city of Townsville!
Issue #1 of The New Powerpuff Girls comes to comic stores in July!
