We’re pleased to debut a First Look at the penultimate issue of the Boom! Studios comic series Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon, written by Olivia Olson (voice of Marceline, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and illustrated by Slimm Fabert.
The series follows the relationship between the once immortal Simon and the still immortal Vampire Queen Marceline, one that has spanned over 900 years. But is that friendship going to end? Marcy, Jake, and Finn have other plans.
Boom Studios says:
Looks like saving Betty from the Golb is the key to saving Simon’s memories and his sanity but they’ll have to search the centers of chaos in each dimension to find her. It’s time to travel to the farthest outer reaches of space and the deepest recesses of the universe to save Betty and Simon once more.
Here’s our First Look!
Boom! Studios has been publishing Adventure Time comic books and graphic novels through their KaBoom! imprint for middle grade readers since 2012 and the series has garnered Eisner, Harvey, and Diamond Gem Awards.
Matthew Levine, Editor at Boom! Studios says:
Simon’s life has been tragic in many ways but the brightest spots have always been the love he has for his chosen family of Marceline and Betty, and hopefully that’ll be what saves him in the end. Olivia and Slimm raise the stakes impossibly high in this penultimate issue by taking us all the way across time and space to confront Simon’s final regret: losing the love of his life to the Golb.
