Found some more pictures:

Edited: Bumped. Is no-one else interested in this? I would have thought there'd be at least a few.

I used to watch the show with my sister but not really interested in reading book about them.

@v_scarlotte_rose: I agree, I only have a couple of the older ones, and even they are ones I bought at the time :/

Good kids should have more comics geared towards them and I always thought Powerpuff Girls were a good one.

Are the old ones any good? I never had the comic books.

Very true. This seems like a good way to get some more child-friendly superhero action out there, much like the cartoon was. :)

If it turns out to be good, I wonder if they'll make it into an ongoing.

@v_scarlotte_rose: They really are, very faithful to the characters and the overall feel of the show :)

@bumpyboo: Cool. I'm looking forward to the TPB a little more now. :)

I wonder if they're planning on collecting more old issues. The fact that this one is called Volume 1 makes me think they will.

#12 Posted by BumpyBoo (9423 posts) - - Show Bio

@v_scarlotte_rose: Definitely, there would be no need to number them if they were only planning to release one. Good point, I didn't think of that ;)

@bumpyboo: It might take a while to release them all. I think there's about 70 issues of their main series.

@bumpyboo: =O Ah!!!!!!!!! =DDD The Powerpuff Girls! Can't believe they're getting a mini-series! Hope it becomes ongoing. 0.0

Can't wait for this!!!

Troy Little has posted another early pitch picture.

Based on these, and his more recent pictures, I think it's going to look pretty good. :)

You can follow him here:

And there's now a 3 page unlettered preview of #1:

Looks like the artwork is going to be quite faithful to the original. :)

Also, an unfinished Mojo Jojo sketch, and what I think is the cover for #2:

Hi. Just bumping this to remind you all that the series starts next Wednesday. And also to post some solicits for issues.

Powerpuff Girls #2 (of 6)
Troy Little (w & a & c)
What’s this? Mojo Jojo volunteers to take “Antidote X” to revert back to his former simple simian state? And what’s more, he’s moving in with the Powerpuff Girls? Shirley, you’ve GOT to be kidding me! The next thing you’re going to tell me is that HIM's got his tutu in a knot, and is starting trouble! Oh wait, it looks like he has… just what the heck is going on in Townsville?!
FC • 32 pages • $3.99

Powerpuff Girls #3
Troy Little (w & a & c)
Hooray! It's a ticker tape parade in honor of... The Ex-Villains of Townsville?! Well sir, it looks to me like the former badniks have turned over a new leaf and are eager to help out their fellow citizens! Buttercup remains skeptical, but when a giant sea monster threatens the city, it's a team up no one could have expected! Can it be that there's a new super hero force in town or is there some sinister shenanigans at work behind the scenes?
FC • 32 pages • $3.99

Powerpuff Girls #4
Troy Little (w & a & c)
Beware crime, for the City of Townsville is being overrun with heroes! That’s right, the Ex-Villains have teamed up alongside the Powerpuff Girls as protectors of this fair city! Wow, Blossom was right; everyone DOES deserve a second chance after all! But WAIT… What’s that sound? Where is that evil laughter coming from? Oh no, something is going very wrong! Powerpuff Girls – HELP!!!
FC • 32 pages • $3.99
All your favorite Powerpuff Girls bad guys turned…good?
Variant cover by Agnes Garbowska!

Jennifer Moore, Sean Carolan, John Rozum, Chuck Kim, Chris Savino, Abbey Denson (w) • Phil Moy, Ricardo Garcia Fuentes, Mike DeCarlo, Mike Manley & Cynthia Morrow (a) • Phil Moy (c)

In my opinion, they need a gritty reboot.

@mitran: How would that go?

@bumpyboo: No problem. :)

And yeah, releasing the old stuff could be a great way to get some interest in this new series, and potential future series'. I wonder if they'll keep up such a regular schedule.

#24 Posted by JetiiMitra (8644 posts) - - Show Bio

@v_scarlotte_rose: Oh, I don't know. It just seems the thing to do at the moment, with everything. But it'd probably look something like this.

Looks like it may now be an ongoing, with at least an 8th issue planned. :D

Powerpuff Girls #5
Troy Little (w & a & c)
Oh NO, it looks like Buttercup was right all along! The Ex-Villains have reverted to their old ways and are tearing up Townsville! The Powerpuff Girls are out-numbered but never outmatched—that is, until the horrible shadow of HIM falls across the battlefield. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, huh?
FC • 32 pages • $3.99

Powerpuff Girls #6

Troy Little(w & a & c)

Cower in fear citizens of Townsville, for I, MOJO JOJO have RETURNED! Not even your Previews solicitation is safe from my influence, for I am all-powerful and supremely cunning. You have been chosen to bare witness to the ultimate destruction of Townsville - for such is my plan to demolish this wretched city once and for all, along with those annoying Powerpuff Girls! Then NO ONE will be able to stop MOJO JOJO from RULING THE WORLD!! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!
