BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today announced Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #1, written by Olivia Olson who voices Marceline, with regular Adventure Time comic artist Slimm Fabert for the exciting official comic book continuation of the animated series by revealing what’s next for the pair.
After the events of the Adventure Time series finale, Marceline and Simon have finally reunited. Now together, Simon asks Marceline for help in making amends for his time as Ice King, which leads them, Finn, and Jake on an adventure with so many twists and turns, even our skilled heroes have a hard time keeping up!
Olivia Olson is quoted as saying,
“Craziness and wonder aside, the best thing about Adventure Timeis the show’s ability to make you feel. Great storytelling can punch you in the gut with laughter, tears or ‘Woah, me too.’ Playing Marceline for the past 8 years has taught me a lot about myself. Besides the whole, demon/vampire post-apocalyptic childhood, she and I have all too much in common. Some of that will definitely come out in this series. I want to thank Cartoon Network and BOOM! Studios for the opportunity to keep these characters story going. I hope to do our queen proud and keep the spirit of Adventure Tim alive undead.”
While Slimm Fabert is quoted as saying,
“Marceline’s history with the Ice King is honestly my favorite part of Adventure Time™, so I feel very lucky to get to work on a comic that explores their relationship in the present. Olivia’s script is excellent, and I’m very excited to see where the story goes from here.”
The comic features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by Lisa Dubois (Rugrats), Sofie Drozdova (Regular Show) and Ashley Morales and will be published on January 16th.
