Powerpuff Girls #9

After surviving Monster Day, Townsville is in for an entirely different kind of threat which begins when Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttecup's favorite boy band The Three Dees comes to town. The Powerpuff Girls' ecstasy and seeing the threesome in concert, and even meeting them, is short-lived however with the arrival of the Rowdyruff Boys who take over the stage to perform their own kind of music that whips the crowd into a crazed frenzy.

Their hands already full with Brick, Boomer, and Butch, the situation becomes exponentionally more complicated with the arrival of the Boogie Man who has his own thoughts about what the citizens of Townsville should be listening to and is willing to instigate an "all-out disco alien invasion sensation" to prove his point.

The boy band idea allows for some cute moments from the threesome, a cameo from Dee Dee, and even showcases Professor Utonium fan boy nature. It also lets writer/artist Troy Little to bring back an under-utilized villain in the Boogey Man while working the unique threat of the Rowdyruff Boys into the comic for the first time. Worth a look.
