Powerpuff Girls #4

Although things start off well-enough for our pint-sized heroes with working with the various former villains to keep the city safe, the second-half of the six-issue mini-series begins a big shift in the story. The new-found peace and happiness of Townsville is threatened when HIM decides to lessen his control over the city's super-villains allowing each of them to begin to revert back to form.

Powerpuff Girls #4 has some fun moments (one of my favorite being Bubbles' picnic with Fuzzy Lumpkins which is captured so beautifully on the variant cover by artist Agnes Garbowska I just had to snatch it up). Buttercup and and Blossom also have issues when their newly-reformed friends "accidentally" put the pair in danger. And it appears the transformation of Mojo Jojo back into plain old Jojo wasn't such a permanent thing after all.

With the various villains all now up to no good I'd expect quite a bit of action in the final two issues of this enjoyable mini-series from writer/artist Troy Little. Worth a look.
