Staff Picks (February 13): Adventure Time Original Graphic Novel
Jan 18, 2013
Oh my glob! An original Adventure Time graphic novel from BOOM! 160 pages of black and white Finn and Jake adventures? Yes, please! In a style similar to Japanese manga and Scott Pilgrim, acclaimed cartoonist Danielle Corsetto will author, while Zack Sterling draws the newest addition to BOOM!’s KabOOM! kid-friendly imprint.
The plot follows Flame Princess as she leaves the Flame Kingdom, alongside Finn the human and Jake the shape-shifting dog. I am curious to see how such a colorful show translates to a black and white medium, but the result will no doubt be as friendly and happy as the show. I am additionally curious to see if the plotline follows existing characters in the Adventure Time universe, or if new characters are created/introduced.
No matter the direction Corsetto and Sterling take Adventure Time, I am certain it will appeal to all-ages and fans of Adventure Time, and might draw in a few more fans.
