Batman Gear


IDW Publishing has announced a June launch for Super Secret Crisis War!, a six-issue crossover event involving Cartoon Network characters.

Here's how Cartoon Network describes the story, written by Louise Simonson.

"When an unstoppable evil spreads across the universe, heroes across time and space will be summoned together to face a threat that none of them could have possibly dealt with on their own. In Super Secret Crisis War!, the fate of the universe will depend upon a stoic warrior, a kid hero, a mad scientist, a fearsome trio of lab experiments, and… Ed, Edd and Eddy?!?

"The six-issue event will feature the herculean heroes going toe-to-toe against the nefarious nemeses Aku, Vilgax, Mandark and Mojo Jojo, attempting to thwart their conniving conquest.

"I love writing group books! So obviously, Super Secret Crisis War! is my dream job!" Simonson said. "Even researching the series is fun -- who doesn't love watching cartoons!? Especially excellent, award-winning cartoon series like Samurai Jack, Ben 10, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, and Ed, Edd, & Eddy. But the very best part is seeing the art and design so beautifully realized by the wonderful Derek Charm. Fun characters, great artist, and a really fine editorial team at IDW!"

Art and cover duties will be handled The Powerpuff Girls writer and artist Derek Charm. Each issue will also feature a subscription cover by The Powerpuff Girls writer and artist, Troy Little that combine to form one massive image. Katie Cook is among the artists contributing additional variants.

IDW also announced tie-in one-shots in July for 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, respectively.

Here's how the episode is described:
