The Bravest Warriors Ad That Doomed Adventure Time #11?
A couple of weeks ago, Diamond issued an order to retailers to destroy any copies of Adventure Time #11 they received. And that a new version would be coming from Boom! soon.
I didn't find any shops that got copies, but I understand that the problem was an advertisement inside for Bravest Warriors being considered a little too "risque" by the licensors, requiring a completely new print run. But some copies seem to have escaped into the wild.
So... did you get a copy? And if so, how long will it take for you to put the comic on eBay?
Here's the ad in full... what caused the issue? The kissing or the farting?
I have been looking for this everywhere! No wonder I haven't seen it yet. It's for my friend's kid. And it was probably rejected because it's an ad for a comic aimed at a much-older audience than Adventure Time. Kochalka doesn't run ads for SuperF*ckers in Johnny Boo.
The first thing that caught my eye when trying to figure it out was in the biggest image the guy's right bulletfist is heading towards the girls(?) ladyparts. Lawyers can be bizarre in finding things to nitpick about, if an image was the problem.
Hey, I'm the guy with the ebay listing. In my opinion, it seems that the books were recalled because the advertisement is for Bravest Warriors #1, which came out several months ago. It even says "on sale now", which isn't really true if it's a back issue.
