ADVENTURE TIME Goes KaBOOM! This February!What time is it? It's Adventure Time! BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network launcha new monthly series!



December 21, 2010 - Los Angeles, CA - Cartoon Network's smash hit animated comedy series Adventure Time is coming to BOOM! Studios' all-ages imprint KaBOOM! in an ongoing monthly comic book series featuring all-new original stories! Hold on to your swords! Adventure Time #1 ships this February!

The highly-anticipated first issue from the monthly series features a story written by Ryan North, author of the smash-hit webcomic Dinosaur Comics, and drawn by Shelli Paroline, the artist of ICE AGE: ICED IN and MUPPET SNOW WHITE.

"It's quite exciting to bring this series to comics. My wife and I are huge fans and sing Marceline's 'Daddy, why'd you eat my fries?' song around the house all the time," BOOM! Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ross Richie said. "Pendleton Ward has created a brilliantly original voice in this show and it's a true 'All Ages' property that appeals both to kids and also has a substantial amount of adult fans. Watch for the waving snail!"

"It was like a bomb dropped in the office when we announced Adventure Time," says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.  "Everyone at BOOM! was just as excited as any fan. Adventure Time is such a classic story at its heart- a boy and his dog on different adventures – but the genius of the show allows us to take a simple concept and get really creative with the presentation. Everyone we've worked with is a huge fan of the show and creator Pen Ward has been instrumental in bringing this comic book to life. "

The ADVENTURE TIME comic series will follow Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Princess Bubblegum and the other inhabitants of the Land of Ooo as they explore many varied adventures. Since its debut on Cartoon Network, Adventure Time has become a runaway hit, with explosive growth in ratings, huge critical and fan acclaim, a major presence at fan conventions and more, it's clear fandom is obsessed and 2012 is the Year of Adventure Time! Don't miss out on this new phenomenon—this first issue is sure to get snapped up! You can pre-order the books at your local comic shop. Don't know where it is? Go to www.comicshoplocator.com Or you can stop by BOOM! Studios (www.boom-studios.com)and pre-order issue #1 or a subscription today!

Do not order stuff from kaboom! I placed my order over 3 weeks ago and it still hasn't been processed. I tried canceling one of my order 2 weeks ago and that order is still being processed. This other girl on tumbler had the exact same problem. She wrote them and asked them if something was out of stock or what the problem was. They wrote back saying they would process the order in a couple days, a week later, nothing. I keep writing kaboom emails but I'm getting no reply. I feel like I've been scammed! Please, Save your money, time, and stress. Sorry about the bad news my fellow comic book friends. If kaboom ever decides to ship me my adventure time comics, I will follow up with a post to explain the details. But for now, save your money and support your local comic book store. Thanks for taking the time to read.

Your fellow comic book friend,

Punch.
