BOOM! Studios has done something interesting with their Adventure Time comics, which are based on the Cartoon Network series created by Pendleton Ward: The comics are kid-friendly in their own right, but BOOM! has tapped a number of indy comics creators with adult followings to work on the series. The result is something that’s fun for kids but a smart buy for adults as well.
Here’s a preview of the second issue of Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens; this story arc will cover six issues and is written by Meredith Gran (creator of Octopus Pie, which is not a kids’ comic), with a backup story by Faith Erin Hicks, creator of Friends With Boys. Issue #1 is on stands now, and this issue will debut on Wednesday, so this is a good time to check it out.
