Can Dark Magic Save The Past? Our Exclusive First Look At Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #3

by Hannah Means Shannon is pleased to reveal an Exclusive First Look at the upcoming third issue of Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon, which will be hitting shops on March 20th, 2019, continuing Boom! Studios’ collaboration with Cartoon Network in a six issue series.

Writer Olivia Olson (voice of Marceline on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) are bringing fans the official comic book continuation of the Emmy® Award-winning series by revealing what’s next for the once immortal Simon and the still immortal Vampire Queen Marceline.

Boom! Studios explains:

Marcy and Simon’s friendship has endured over 900 years and through bouts of insanity and amnesia. So when Simon’s memories of his life as the Ice King and his memories of Marceline, start slipping away, there’s nowhere left to turn except the source of darkest magic itself—Hunson Abadeer, Marceline’s dad and evil overlord of the Nightosphere. But of course, things get complicated when Marcy confronts her demonic father and asks for help saving Simon: dark magic always has a cost.

Here’s our Exclusive First Look!


For those who might be new to Adventure Time, the animated show created by Pendleton Ward premiered in 2010, and lasted for 10 seasons. It follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its more than colorful inhabitants.

Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon is Olson’s third writing contribution to the expanded literary world of the 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 Time™ books, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now.

Matthew Levine, Editor at Boom! Studios says:

Marcy’s relationship with her father is almost as complicated as her relationship with Simon and both are important figures in her life so it stands to reason that when she’s got nowhere else to go, she turns to Hunson for help. But the Lord of Evil is a demonic being by nature and even his love for his Vampire Queen daughter can’t shake his inherent need to sow chaos so the results of his dark magical help might not leave Simon any better off than he was before.

Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #3 features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by artists Lisa DuBois and Danielle Chuatico.
