Boom! Studios’ Next Adventure Time Graphic Novel Is ‘Bitter Sweets’ By Kate Leth And Zachary Sterling
If there is one thing that I have learned in my time here at ComicsAlliance, it’s that the public’s hunger for Adventure Time cannot be sated, and only grows ever stronger as we offer up more and more to its howling maw. But offer we will, and in the process we’ll get some pretty great comics out of the deal, including both the Eisner-winning ongoing series and a line of original graphic novels focusing on smaller groups of characters.
This week, BOOM! announced the latest in the OGN series, Bitter Sweets, in which writer and Kate Or Die creator Kate Leth and artist Zachary Sterling, reuniting the team behind the best-selling Adventure Time: Seeing Red for a new story that focuses on Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler. And this time, they’re in full color.
The official description promises a lot of fun, but fails to mention whether Leth and Sterling will follow up on putting Marceline’s dad in the armor from Bram Stoker’s Dracula by referencing any other Gary Oldman roles in the new one:

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s that lovely time of year where Princess Bubblegum gets to leave the Candy Kingdom and venture out into the outer limits of Ooo. But when her annual quest to visit old friends takes a dark and unexpected turn, it’s up to PB and Peppermint Butler to keep the peace by using the true power of friendship. Written by New York Times bestselling author Kate Leth (Adventure Time: Seeing Red), and illustrated by the sensational Zachary Sterling (Aventure Time), Bitter Sweets is a deliciously twisted adventure with a surprising aftertaste.
