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.

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.
