Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are back! The proto riot-grrls of Saturday morning were created by Craig McCracken for the Cartoon Network back in 1998, and created an immediate sensation. While the show hasn’t been on the air in a while, IDW is bringing them back in a new comic written and drawn by Troy Little which goes on sale today.
I have a soft spot for the Powerpuffs because I edited their original comic book adventures for DC back in the day and came to appreciate McCracken’s formidable eye for both story and art. To celebrate their return, here’s a preview of the new issue AND a gallery of the retailer variant covers via editor Chris Ryall.
