KaBoom Summer Blast First Look – Adventure Time: Beginning Of The End #1
by Hannah Means Shannon
This week, Boom! Studios are releasing a string of First Looks at their KaBOOM! Summer Blast, a week-long spotlight on all-ages comic book and graphic novels from the imprint. You can also catch our exclusive first look at the OGN Dodo by Felipe Nunes.
Adventure Time: Beginning of The End #1 is the first of a three part series available in stores May 23rd, where Finn “breaks a promise he can’t remember making which leads to a confrontation with Chronologius Rex, the lord of Hours and All Time!”
Ted Anderson (My Little Pony) and Marina Julia (Lumberjanes, SLAM! The Next Jam) set Finn on a journey to “confront the ghosts of his past selves, the alternate selves of his present, and all his possible futures”. It’s an epic new tale, for sure!
Issue #1 features a wraparound main cover by Victoria Maderna (Adventure Time), along with variant covers by Diigii Daguna (Adventure Time Comics) and connecting variant covers by Corey Booth (Over The Garden Wall).
Whitney Leopard, Editor at Boom! Studios, says:
ADVENTURE TIME: BEGINNING OF THE END celebrates the show, the comic, and all the fans who helped us deliver some of the most entertaining all-ages stories of the last ten years. Back in 2012, when we launched our first Adventure Time series, we wanted to create stories for kids that didn’t pander to its readers and could be enjoyed by all. After more than a hundred comics, multiple series and graphic novels, and numerous awards, Adventure Time – and so many comics since then – have shown that not only do kids remain the most important new readers, they are huge fans of comics. It’s been our pleasure, and will continue to be our goal in KaBOOM! to create content that is truly for all-ages.
Print copies of Adventure Time: Beginning of The End #1 will be available for sale on May 23rd at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
