Goodreads Synopsis: 
After their victory in the Super Secret Crisis War, the Powerpuff Girls take it easy with a rare VIP tour of Dexter’s Laboratory! But when tag-along Dee Dee accidentally activates Dexter’s newest invention, the fate of the entire multiverse is suddenly at stake! A dimensions-spanning epic into the worlds of Courage The Cowardly Dog, Cow and Chicken, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, and Dexter's Laboratory!
When I saw this cover I couldn't wait to read this graphic novel - it is bright, fun, and full of characters I have watched growing up and with my siblings. The story stays true to so many of the shows plot lines - the Powerpuff Girls are there to save the day, Dexter is there to be a genius but his sister Dee Dee is always messing it up, there is Courage the dog being a coward and imaginary friends playing games while Bloo takes this way too seriously. 

It was everything I wanted from it - catching, eye attracting colors, good guys and evil ones, experiments gone wrong, Dee Dee being a pain. It is everything I loved from the shows in paper form.

The book showcased a lot of those shows too - one panel even has most of the shows from that time, but the whole book includes the Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Cow and Chick, Billy and Mandy, and the Justice Friends and it was done creatively and in a fun way. Loved it.
