BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network revealed a first look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #6 (of 6). Writer Olivia Olson (voice of Marceline, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) bring fans the final issue of the exciting official comic book continuation by revealing what’s next for the once immortal Simon and the still immortal Vampire Queen Marceline in comic book form.
Marcy and Simon’s friendship has endured over 900 years and through bouts of insanity and amnesia so there’s no way that friendship ends now, right? Everything comes to a head as Marcy, Simon, Jake, Finn, and BMO venture forth to confront the Golb version of Betty in order to save Simon’s memories and his life, while Marcy’s dad Hunson continues to interfere from the Nightosphere. No matter how tough the going gets, though, Marcy gets tougher and she lays everything on the line for her closest friend in this shocking conclusion to this epic story about the centuries-old connection between Simon Petrikov and Marceline the Vampire Queen.
A modern-day fable, the critically-acclaimed Adventure Time became a global success, attracting adult and kid viewers alike over the course of 10 seasons. It follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. Adventure Time™ was created by Pendleton Ward and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.
BOOM! Studios has been publishing the New York Times bestselling Adventure Time comic books and graphic novels through their KaBOOM! imprint for middle grade readers since 2012 and been honored with Eisner, Harvey, and Diamond Gem Awards for the series.
ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON is Olson’s third writing contribution to the expanded literary world of the eponymous franchise, previously collaborating with her father Martin Olson (the voice of “Hunson Abadeer”) on The Adventure Time™ Encyclopedia. The two also co-authored Adventure Time™: The Enchiridion & Marcy’s Super Secret Scrapbook, written from a first-person perspective through Marceline’s diary entries about when she and Simon first met. Both Adventure Timebooks, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now everywhere books are sold.
