This January Boom! Studio is promising a comic where "The 'Freaky Friday' trope is turned on its head with an Ooo-sized twist!" with the release of Adventure Time Flip Side #1, the first in body-swapping miniseries written by the Eisner Award-winning Bandette team of Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. Illustrating interiors is Wook Jin Clark, the upcoming author of the tokusatsu-tinged Megagogo at Oni Press, with Ellen Alsop on Cover B, and more cover artists to be announced. The book's complete plot is still a relative mystery, but it should be interesting to see how Boom!'s clues pan out if they do indeed result in AT characters switching forms. Boom! has provided CA with a first-look at Alsop's cover for the upcoming mini, which you can scope out past the cut.

October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It's the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.
But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I'm spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're running down the costumes based on Adventure Time, featuring Sexy Lumpy Space Princess and the best Finn and Jake costume ever!

Funko's Pop Vinyl series is set to continue its Adventure Time line this fall with six new figures joining the current assemblage of Finn, Jake, Ice King, Marceline the Vampire Queen and Lumpy Space Princess. Natasha Allegri's fan-favorite female versions of AT's usual male protagonists Fionna and Cake are notable standouts, with Princess Bubblegum, Ice King's penguin Gunter, Lemongrab and BMO rounding the half-dozen figure strong wave out.

A few of our favorite animated projects and their creators were recognized by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences this week with awards for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation. Unsurprisingly Adventure Time's Andy Ristaino won for character design while the new Mickey Mouse short, "Croissant de Triomphe," earned artists Jenny Gase-Baker and Joseph Holt prizes in background paint and art direction, respectively. Of course the superlative work of Alberto Mielgo on TRON: Uprising was honored with an art direction trophy, which just makes the cancelation of that most impressive new adventure series sting all the more.
