New Powerpuff Girls Comic Miniseries The Time Tie Starts In May

Animation news publication and website – Animation Magazine, has posted details about an upcoming The Powerpuff Girls comics miniseries. Starting in May this year, three issues will be released, the miniseries is written by Haley Mancini and Jake Goldman, the same main show writers for the animated series. The comic miniseries will be called “The Time Tie”, in the story Mojo Jojo realises that he can’t destroy The Powerpuff Girls, so he does the next best thing, he sending them back in time by using his Time Tie device. As a consequence, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup end up in three different eras in history, all three must find a way to return to the present and stop Mojo Jojo before he destroys Townsville.

In the Q&A interview by Animation Magazine, both Haley and Jake said they always wanted to do a time traveling episode of The Powerpuff Girls, much like the “Speed Demon” episode in the original series. Both explained that a lengthy and more in-depth storyline would be difficult to fit into a single 11 minute episode, but instead of shelving a potential episode idea, they decided to release their time-traveling story in the form of a comic miniseries. The comic miniseries is published by IDW and features cover art by one of the TV show’s storyboard artists – Jay Hasrajani and also Phil Murphy, also known for his illustrations and cover art in the Adventure Time, Clarence and The Amazing World of Gumball comics.
