Popular characters from the Cartoon Network will be soon making their way from the TV screen to the comic book shelf.  IDW has announced today that have partnered with the Cartoon Network to produce a new series of comic books featuring popular characters such as The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Ben 10, and Dexter’s Laboratory.

Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer and Editor-in-Chief of IDW had the following to say about the new partnership: Many of these Cartoon Network shows have only grown in popularity since they originally aired, and we’re excited to be able to offer new iterations of the characters in comic-book form alongside both our planned reprint material and also some new animated ventures Cartoon Network has planned, too. There’s a wealth of fun properties to play with here, and we’ve already got some unique things in mind for them.”

Pete Yoder, Vice President of Consumer Products for Cartoon Network added his thoughts on the partnership as well: “We are excited to partner with IDW to bring some of our most beloved and iconic brands and characters to life for fans of all ages.  It will be a great opportunity to revisit and expand many of these great stories told in comic-book form, and we’re excited to see what the creative team at IDW comes up with.”

As of now there is no official word on which characters will be appearing in print or when any titles will be officially released.
