Ah, the City of Townsville, home to none other than: THE POWERPUFF GIRLS! But things have been pretty calm lately... So much so, that Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup have fallen out of the public eye-which makes it the perfect time for their super-simian arch nemesis Mojo Jojo to take over and win the hearts of millions, backed by his army of paparazzi!

    This would be a great series to start young readers. They didn't really gear the story toward girls or boys, it should be a fun read for anyone and if you really enjoyed the cartoon before it's a fun easy book you can even read with your kids. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin October May 24, 2017

    Blossom goes through a wild time in the wild west as she saves the day Powerpuff style. Saves a train, stops a robbery and maybe names the town of Townsville accidentally of course. I hope we see the notorious robber Sliced Bread in future issues as he was only mentioned through posters and conversations. Written on an autographed wanted poster "To my number one fan, give me all your money." Must be a nice guy. It's small things like this that made the cartoon great. It's good to see the Powerpuff Girls still fighting bad guys, giant monsters and evil confusing villains. Sugar, spice and four out of five stars! Read Full Review

    It seems 90's nostalgia is still a strong within the pop-culture, and Mancini and Goldman have delivered a Powerpuff tale true to the original Cartoon Network series. Read Full Review

    Any ‘90s kid can’t pass this up. We’re in our 20s now, but Powerpuff Girls means just as much to us now as it did back when we were kids. This is a great read for any fan of the supergirl trio, and even Mojo Jojo. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of him… Keep reading for more action, adventure, and cuteness! Read Full Review

    I guess I'll call this comic a complete success from a technical standpoint: there was no alteration between the animated show and this comic issue. So"bravo? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Justin Wood Jul 13, 2016

    This is our industry. A dirge of worthless pulp flowing over comic art stands. I wish variants didn't own my local shop, so I didn't have to see people shelling out $20 for something like Scooby Apocalypse, but such is publishing and we'll keep feeding the beast. Whatever. I pay my dues as a critic. But at the end of the day I'll settle down with a copy of Dark Night or Angora Napkinand remember that there is still real care put into art in certain wings of this industry. Just not in the books with double digit variants. Read Full Review
