At least, that's what some of the internet found itself asking about this Cartoon Network commissioned Powerpuff Girls comic cover:. The cover caused the owner of a comics retailer, Dennis Barger Jr, to take to Facebook a few days ago and ask "Are we seriously sexualizing pre-teen girls like perverted writing fan fiction writers on the internet???? The remarks caused some controversy around how the girls should be depicted and whether or not they were being sexualized. The artist of the cover, Mimi Yoon, didn't seen so happy with the controversy surrounding the cover— using Facebook, she wrote "one opinionated dog barks i'm fine with that … and the rest of the pack barks 'pretending' to know what they're barking about hate those idiots … tsk tsk tsk. IDW, the comic publisher, was nonetheless sympathetic to the concerns of people like Barger—their VP of marketing, Dirk Woods, responded to the whole thing as follows:. We love making comics for kids, and always want them to be appropriate. For what it's worth, CN has been a great partner in that regard… I know an 8 year old and 10 year old really well, and always look at these kinds of things through their eyes… Half of the employees have kids here, and we pride ourselves in making comics they'll enjoy and not give them a warped view of the world except, you know, in a good way.
