The Powerpuff Girls get new life in the first issue of IDW’s new six-issue mini-series. Powerpuff Girls #1 features Townsville’s pint-sized heroes (Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup) saving the day from both Mojo Jojo‘s latest attack and a swamp monster causing havoc on the city’s golf course.
Fans of the show should enjoy themselves here, although I will note writer/artist Troy Little does have trouble getting Mojo Jojo speech right as it’s much more straightforward in the comic than the more byzantine and circular restating of facts fans of the character have come to know and love.
The issue comes with an amazing array of variant covers (several only available from select vendors) and sets up what will apparently be the mini-series’ big plot development as an incarcerated Mojo Jojo, tired loosing to the Powerpuff Girls, decides his big brain has been nothing but trouble and reaches out to the one man who might be able turn him back into a happy monkey – Professor Utonium. Say it ain’t so, Mojo! Worth a look.
