Between the main Adventure Time
book series, its recently-concluded Marceline and the Scream Queens
spinoff and the new Fionna & Cake
mini, fans have access to a strong stream of monthly comics from Boom!. For brand new readers, plus those who just can't get enough AT stuff -- which is, y'know, every fan of Pen Ward's -- the publisher has announced the April release of Adventure Time Vol. 1: Playing With Fire OGN
. Written by Danielle Corsetto (Girls With Slingshots
), illustrated by Zack Sterling (Adventure Time
, Bravest Warriors
) and featuring a cover by Stephanie Gonzaga, the OGN will come formatted similarly to a volume of manga or Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim
paperbacks. Weighing in at 160 pages, the 6x9" black and white volume should prove especially compelling to those currently wrapped up in the increasingly dangerous romance blossoming between Finn and Flame Princess.
From Boom!'s official solicitation info:
AN ALL-NEW ADVENTURE TIME ORGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL! Join Flame Princess, alongside Finn and Jake, as she leaves the Flame Kingdom and goes on her very first adventure! Written by acclaimed cartoonist Danielle Corsetto (GIRLS WITH SLINGSHOTS) and drawn by rising star Zack Sterling (BRAVEST WARRIORS, ADVENTURE TIME). A pocket black and white edition appealing to fans of SCOTT PILGRIM and Japanese manga!
