‘Adventure Time’ #28 Asks: Who Ya Gonna Call When Finn And Jake Are Ghosts? Anti-Ghost Princess! [Preview]

Adventure Time #28, Boom! Studios

It's one of those weird quirks about comics that when something is really, really good, you kind of forget about it for a while. Being great becomes the standard, so you almost forget about how good it is until something comes along and it suddenly gets even better. Like, say, when the Adventure Time comic teams up writer Ryan North with Street Angel and Afrodisiac creator Jim Rugg to introduce a bold new character named Anti-Ghost Princess in next week's issue.

That's right, Finn and Jake have shuffled off this mortal coil and have been reduced to haunting the candy castle, leading Princess Bubblegum to call in Anti-Ghost Princess and her team to handle these supernatural shennanigans once and for all. And I can assure you: this bit of busting certainly makes me feel good. Check out a preview below!

Now, Boom is showing off a lot more in advance of the first issue's June release. Namely, a slew of covers by Powell, Joe Quinones, Chris Weston, Terry Dodson and Emi Yonemura Brown. Check them all out after the jump!

Finn And Jake Go Full Cowboy In ‘Adventure Time: The Flip Side’ #5 [Preview]

Adventure Time: The Flip Side #5

After six seasons of a TV show and a few years of an Eisner-winning comic book, I think it's safe to say that we've got a pretty good handle on Finn and Jake, the stars of Adventure Time. Like, we can relate to them and we know how they think, which is why we completely understand it when we pop open a comic and find them encouraging a wizard to go out and kidnap princesses.

WAIT WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

Yes, friends, in Paul Tobin, Colleen Coover and Wook Jin Clark's Adventure Time: The Flip Side #5, Finn and Jake are actually pro-princess-napping in this comic, and what's more, they are also cowboys. This is not code language. Perhaps the preview below will explain things.

Tiny Kitten Teeth creators Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt are no stranger to Adventure Time, having lent their talents to a number of Boom!'s all-ages books, but they always manage to leave their Becky & Frank mark. This Wednesday in Adventure Time Annual #1 the duo does it again with a special horizontally-oriented storyline that gives their whimsical, painted take on Fionna and Cake all the room it needs to breathe -- and it's going to need room because this comic winds back the clock to see just how the future heroes of Ooo behaved as kids.

‘Herobear And The Kid: Saving Time’ #1 Shows How All-Ages Comics Are Done [Review]

herobearsavingtime1

A common lament among comics lovers is that there aren't enough books for kids anymore, and it's a valid one. The average comic is written to be understood by preteens and up, while the average reader hovers somewhere around the age 30, and it’s unlikely that this trend is going to reverse anytime soon. But most of those 30-year-olds aren’t readers today because they started in their late teens or early twenties, they’re readers today because they had their initial exposure to comics probably before the age of ten. Even though we’ve been trying to convince the rest of the world that comics aren’t for kids anymore since 1986, kids are absolutely necessary to the medium’s survival. If comic books hope to have a future amidst rapidly-evolving children’s media and Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! program, then a healthy percentage of comics published today need to be geared toward the under-ten crowd, and they need to be good.

Fortunately, we have Mike Kunkel’s Herobear and the Kid: Saving Time #1 to show everybody how it’s done.

Regular Show 12 Preview
Boom! Studios

If you're like most of us at ComicsAlliance, there's a good chance that you remember that fleeting year or so in the mid '90s when comic shops were overflowing with the heavily-decorated circular disks known as pogs, plus all of their prevalent slammer, mat and "pogtainer" accessories. Well, get stoked on a kind of resurgence next week as Regular Show #12 fills both physical and digital retailers with the flip-em-to-win-em items once again... only not quite the way you think. See how KC Green and artist Alison Strejlau have teamed to exploit your pogstalgia -- and, in many ways, warn a generation that hasn't experienced them of the wickendess of pogs -- with our first-look preview.
