Too Much Puff

The Cartoon Network owns the Powerpuff girls normally shown as below in their ongoing comic series:


But it seems someone, temporarily, though it would be a good idea to run this variant cover:


A cover then withdrawn when comic store owners (of all people) were uncomfortable with it....

I have honestly always been a bit confused as to who the target audience for the Powerpuff Girls was. It's a bit to meta to be purely for the under-10 set, regardless of the apparent (unspecified) ages of the girls (6? 7?).

 I mean, we have tween Dora now--is teen puff really so shocking?
