Su­per Se­cret Cri­sis War! #1

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Louise Si­mon­son and Derek Charm [IDW, $3.99]

It’s hard not to get just a lit­tle bit ex­cited at the prospect of an old­fash­ioned comic-book cross­over event fea­tur­ing clas­sic Cartoon Net­work char­ac­ters, and this first is­sue doesn’t dis­ap­point. The story be­gins with the League of Ex­tra­or­di­nary Vil­lains — com­prised of Aku, Vil­gax, Mojo Jojo and Man­dark — us­ing ro­bots from each other’s worlds to trap Sa­mu­rai Jack, the Pow­er­puff Girls, Ben 10, Dex­ter and Ed, Edd & Eddy so they can use their pow­ers to con­quer the world. If that sounds a bit con­fus­ing, it’s par for the course in crossovers like this, as is the plethora of tie-ins as this six-is­sue se­ries will be sup­ple­mented by five tie-in one-shots fea­tur­ing Johnny Bravo, The Grim Ad­ven­tures of Billy and Mandy, Fos­ter’s Home for Imag­i­nary Friends, Cow and Chicken and KND: Kids Next Door. It’s all kind of crazy, but it’s also a lot of fun and a very cool way to re­visit some of the funkier Cartoon Net­work char­ac­ters. — Tom McLean
