Adventure Time Volume 1 by Mike Holmes, Ryan North and Branden Lamb
If the two words ‘Adventure Time’ doesn’t instantly bring a smile to your face, you are truly missing out. The Cartoon Network programme has already achieved cult status and consistently rated their number one show throughout 2012.
Jake, the super stretchy dog and Finn the human boy are best of friends, living in the Land of Ooo. Due to the evil Ice King’s addiction to kidnapping the local Princesses, Jake and Finn are often called on to save the day and sometimes the entire world!
In their first graphic novel adventure, this is exactly the predicament Jake and Finn find themselves in. When the dastardly Lich is accidentally freed from his bag prison by an unwitting snail, he vows to destroy every single thing on the planet and as he heads for the Candy Kingdom and Princess Bubblegum it’s up to the heroic duo to stop the evil Lich.
This Adventure Time graphic novel is everything you could possibly want and if you’re a fan of the cartoon already, I promise it’ll tick all your boxes. BMO their computer friend learns to kick some ass, Marceline the Vampire Queen makes an appearance and there’s even a little bit of unrequited love. If you’re not aware of the cartoon series (well get onto Youtube now!) then this story opens up with a little intro to all the main characters on one page so you won’t get left behind. Packed with humour that manages to be accessible for kids but hilarious for adults too, this first volume will have you chomping at the bit for volume two!
