Expect IDW to announce this during their presentation at the ComcisPRO event in Atlanta, Georgia today.
But they are releasing a Cartoon Network crossover event this summer, starring Samurai Jack, The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Ben 10, Ed, Edd, & Eddy and more.
And all their foes of course.
It’s called Super Secret Crisis War.
Of course it is.
And it’s written by Louise Simonson, who had her fair share of superhero crossovers with Mutant Massacre and the like, with art by Powerpuff writer/artist Derek Charm, six issues, beginning in June.
And from July, the Super Secret Crisis War gets a series of one shots with Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Johnny Bravo, Codename: Kids Next Door, and Cow and Chicken written by Ivan Cohen, Kate Leth, Erik Burnham, Scott Peterson and Jim Zub. Could these be “pilot comics” to test the viability and popularity of other Cartoon Network characters getting their own series?
You may very well think that, I couldn’t possibly comment.
