'Powerpuff Girls' Crosses Over with 'Teen Titans Go!' in June

It's all out war when Teen Titans Go! meet the Powerpuff Girls. Ok, maybe war is not the right word, more like fun collaboration time as the two Cartoon Network shows come together to take on Mojo Jojo and his villainous plan. 

Appearing on 'Titans' in June, the evil monkey comes to town causing trouble so the Powerpuff Girls help the Titans battle their nemesis. If Cyborg and Beast Boy can stop admiring Mojo Jojo for being a cool talking monkey long enough to take him down.

"Jump City will never be the same when our little superheroes Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup meet up with the Teen Titans for the very first time. When these two worlds of superheroes collide, it will surely be something to remember," says Powerpuff Girls executive producer Nick Jennings.

Rosa Salazar Has Been Cast as James Cameron's 'Battle Angel'

From the man that brought you Jessica Alba as television's 'Dark Angel,' he's finally bringing 'Battle Angel' to theaters with Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) as the star. James Cameron's long in development manga adaptation has reportedly found its female lead for director Robert Rodriguez.
Salazar beat out Maika Monroe (It Follows) and Disney Channel's Zendaya to take on the role of a refurbished cyborg, saved by a doctor after being trashed, that uses her martial arts skills to hunt down dangerous criminals. The film is based on the manga series by Yukito Kishiro, Battle Angel Alita, with a script by Cameron. 
With Cameron still planning on more Avatar movies, he passed the directing duties to Rodriguez who'll put his own spin on the project. “Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do Battle Angel,” stated Cameron. “He’s very collaborative and we’re already like tw…

REVIEW: 'DC Universe Rebirth' #1 by Geoff Johns, Gary Frank, Ivan Reis, Ethan Van Sciver, Phil Jimenez, et al

★★★★☆ (4/5)
Anytime a comic book publisher offers a "big event" for their line, it's usually an unnecessary multi-title crossover storyline. A reboot that forces the reader to start over with new #1 issues and a new directive. In DC Comics' case, a revamp was needed after 'New 52' failed to ignite sales and fans. Some good books emerged but it was clear the majority were not resonating. As part of Geoff Johns' mission to bring "hope and optimism" to comics and films, 'DC Universe Rebirth' is the first step that's part confession, part mission statement and overall works well.
The DC universe is broken according to the narrator, Wally West, as he tries to reconnect with someone out of the speed force. He paints a grim picture, basically describing the atmosphere of the 'New 52' where characters were stripped of their identities, others removed altogether, and the tonal shift to darker storytelling. It's a mea culpa delivered…

'Blue Monday Vol 1: The Kids Are Alright' Paperback Coming This July

Chynna Clugston Flores (IT GIRL & THE ATOMICS, Scooter Girl) will release the fan-favorite first volume of BLUE MONDAY, with all-new colors from Jordie Bellaire, this July.
Experience the Pepsi-fueled misadventures of Bleu L. Finnegan, comics’ favorite blue-haired, Buster Keaton-obsessed, Adam Ant-worshipping teenager from the very beginning! Featuring an introduction from Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), this collects the original first volume miniseries as well as early short stories and more. 

"BLUE MONDAY in full color is like a dream come true for me, since it's always appeared in the brightest of colors in my head,” said Flores. “The whole thing has been remastered in a sense––the art's been cleaned, it's as bright and alive as it always wanted to be, and it'll be full comic size instead of digest. It'll be at full-volume, maximum obnoxiousness, and I really can't wait for everyone to see its new incarnation."

"I grew up reading BL…

REVIEW: 'Scooby Apocalypse' #1 by Giffen, DeMatteis, Porter, and Hi-Fi

★★★★☆ (4/5)
At first glance, Scooby Apocalypse #1 looked like a desperate attempt to update the classic animated series into a gritty modern dystopian tale. I'm glad to report while it does admittedly reference a "hipster doofus" in Shaggy, he's not, this new series honors the mystery busters while giving them relevance in the modern age. 
All the well-known characters - Daphne, Fred, Velma - are much sharper and more mature than I expected.There's some serious business at hand but the issue balances the humor you'd expect with explaining the peril not only the gang is in but the world around them. Scooby Apocalypse is more than meets the eye. 
From a concept by Jim Lee, the gang comes together through Velma's effort to expose her organization's efforts to alter humanity. Fred and Daphne are has-been reality show stars downgraded to an obscure cable channel show, Shaggy is Scooby's dog trainer and part of Velma's company to give dogs greater inte…
