After almost three years, the Adventure Time tenure of Ryan North as writer alongside artists Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb will come to a close with the release of issue #35 next week. Based on the Pendleton Ward animated series about a boy and his dog at the end of the world and the beginning of fun that never ends, North and co.'s run has included multiple awards including an Eisner for Best Publication For Kids, and is regarded by fans and professionals as one of the best, most consistently entertaining comics in the American market.

Speaking with our own Chris Sims about the end of his run, North described his approach to Adventure Time:

My ideal with the book is to feel like you’re writing something that’s essential for the show, but that stands on its own for anyone who hasn’t seen every episode, to just read it and enjoy it. That can be tricky when you have something where the show’s done something close to what you’ve already written. You want to have to acknowledge that in some way, but also not make it feel really obvious and clunky, because people who haven’t seen that episode won’t know what you’re talking about. It’s a neat walk you have to do with that.

For this end of an era, we join the gang as they encounter the worst thing to ever happen to anyone in the entire history of time.
