IDW to Publish Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, and other Cartoon Network Shows

IDW gets the rights to publish comics of shows from Cartoon Network.



Source: IDW to publish Powerpuff Girls, Cartoon Network comics

In a bold move, IDW has announced a partnership with Cartoon Network to publish comics based on their shows. So far the titles announced are: Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Dexter's Laboratory, Ben 10, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and Johnny Bravo. With this announcement the reporter asked simian criminal mastermind Mojo Jojo for a comment:

 

What do I keep telling you people?! I have reiterate and restate my point once again. For there must be only ONE Mojo Jojo in the world. ONE MOJO JOJO SHALL SUFFICE! For only ONE Mojo Jojo can rule the world. And that Mojo Jojo shall be me! However with this opportunity that IDW has now provided by partnering with Cartoon Network. Now you who is reading this, can now read comics published from IDW that were once Cartoon Network properties: Samurai Jack, Dexter's Laboratory, Ben 10, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Johnny Bravo, and the Powerpuff Girls.

 

Of course, I Mojo Jojo will buy none of these for these do not interest me at all save the later if appearances of myself appear in comics. Though I Mojo Jojo demand more! For simple small appearances in a single comic is not enough! No, I Mojo Jojo demand that I Mojo Jojo be given an ongoing. An ongoing to be written by only ONE writer who writes in the concise form that I MOJO JOJO approve. That writer who shall write my comic should be Brian Michael Bendis. For he and he alone is Mojo's one and only choice. For the other choices do not amuse Mojo, and Mr. Bendis does. For only Mr. Bendis's writings do not bore me into a state of utter unconsciousness and only interest me. For he is the only writer who properly uses descriptive and defining writing. He is the only writer who understands Mojo's way of thinking. Everyone else fails in that regard.

 

As for the person who's art shall be upon the book of Mojo's, it does not matter. For Mr. Bendis's concise and to the letter words of dialogue will shine through no matter what. So I plea, no demand demanding is always good, yet evil. That IDW immediately have Mr. Bendis write Mojo. For only he shall suffice! Any of the other writers IDW hires for this task to write Mojo must be approved by Mojo. For I Mojo Jojo will only accept a writer who understands the complexly of detailed panels with the complexly detailed splash pages that will last a complexly length of time.

 

 

This quote was from and given by,

 

MOJO JOJO

 

For those curious how this will effect Cartoon Network's prior commiments and relationship with Boom! Studios (who are currently publishing Adventure Time and Regular Show comics), this won't effect their current contract.  As for when IDW will begin publishing these comics, stay tuned as this site will keep you updated for further developments.

Truth be told, DC sucks in publishing comics they own the license for. Just look at the earlier CN comics they had. Now they know at the very least IDW will give them some respect and if Samurai Jack has a good creative team that comic is bought on sight.

Well, hello, girls!

Isn't it interesting to see that DC Comics, which is owned by Time Warner like Cartoon Network is, will NOT be publishing these Cartoon Network books as they have before?? So much for "corporate synergy"! :P

Now, if only the DC characters could be just as easily divorced from DC Comics! But I guess SOMEone has to go through He-- well, you know where I mean! :wink: :twisted:

DC should just be folded into CN. Maybe it would be able to make DC animated series cheaper, and make better comics at the same time.

If you were CN, would you really want DC publishing comics based on properties aimed at children? :smt102

However, this does present an interesting conundrum. IDW and Boom! Studios are currently publishing comics based on properties owned by Cartoon Network. Cartoon Network is owned by Turner Broadcasting System Inc. which is actually a subsidiary of Time Warner, the very same company that owns DC Comics. Why would Cartoon Network outsource the publishing of their comic books when DC has published comics based on their properties in the past? :smt017

Who's going to buy these books? Those cartoons haven't been on the air for a while, kids won't know what they are.

It's not going to be grown adults is it? Oh God, it is.

...says the guy on a COMIC BOOK message board with a SUPERHERO avatar. :roll: :P

Some people are so used to reading about DC and Marvel superheroes that they forget that those are ALSO supposed to be "for kids"...

Were supposed to be for kids. Comic books haven't been exclusively for kids for years now. In fact, publishers now market separate lines and imprints just so people know which books are specifically for kids.

Maybe they feel DC doesn't have the creative talent pool to do so or DC with the cancellation of YJ, GL, and Superman Family comics decided that all ages is something DC doesn't want anymore.

I think Ben 10 will have a better chance of success with IDW.
