How highly anticipated is Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward's upcoming online animated series Bravest Warriors
? Very. Not only did Boom Studios feel comfortable enough in the show's forthcoming popularity to announce a six-issue comic book miniseries by Joey Comeau and Mike Holmes all the way back in June
, Frederator Studios itself was teasing a potential comic book tie-in
as early as March. Fans and retailers caught on and apparently preordered enough copies of the book's first issue -- out October 31 -- resulting in Boom! upgrading Bravest Warriors from a miniseries to an ongoing monthly comic
. Commemorating the occasion, Boom! has provided ComicsAlliance with an early look at all four covers from Bravest Warriors
#4 by Tyson Hesse, Victoria Ying and Mike Yamada, Zac Gorman and Nate Bulmer. Issue #4 sees the team battle sadness incarnate, a feeling BW fans are likely feeling the opposite of right about now.
From Boom! Studios' official solicitation info:
The Bravest Warriors have to band together to defeat the most nefarious villain of all...Sadness, bro! But Sadness isn't going down without a weepy fight! The totally awesome comic adaptation of the new show from ADVENTURE TIME creator Pendelton Ward!
You can check out all four covers from Bravest Warriors #4 below.
