Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up! #4

The Powerpuff Girls' search for a mutated dimension-hopping DeeDee leads them to Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends where Bubbles is delighted to meet Mac and his menagerie of odd friends. The search for DeeDee is complicated by Bloo who, along with the rest of the creatures and DeeDee, is currently participating in a game of Hide-and-Seek and doesn't wish to be found.

The absence of the Powerpuff Girls doesn't mean the end of danger for the citizens of Townsville. In the issue's B-story Dexter calls in the Justice Friends to save the city from multiple simultaneous attacks (sadly off-panel) in the Girls' absence.

Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-Up! #4 is a fun addition to the series (giving us the most entertaining world the Girls' have traveled to yet). It also includes a short, if largely forgettable, back-up story demonstrating Mojo Jojo's inability to hold down and honest job and why he will never be anything more than a super-villain. Worth a look.
