This January, KaBOOM!, the award-winning imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, in conjunction with Cartoon Network Enterprises, has announced the much anticipated release of a six-issue limited series, Adventure Time: Ice King.
The creative team working on this project are Emily Partridge (Adventure Time) and Pranas Naujokaitis (Uncle Grandpa), along with artist Natalie Andrewson (Lumberjanes). The book’s creators are focusing on one of the most tragic yet hilarious characters in the Land of Ooo, in an exciting new adventure that will focus on showing readers and Adventure Time fans what makes the Ice King tick.
While the Ice King has always been in the Adventure Time world, kidnapping princesses, messing with Finn and Jake, and generally being a weirdo, this sox issue limited series will show that there’s way more to the Ice King than that! He’s a deep, thoughtful person with a heart full of love! Or…maybe he just really wants to marry a princess. Either way, this is one journey the citizens of Ooo aren’t likely to forget!
The story centers around the Ice King waking up one morning only to find Gunter missing and a ransom note from someone called Dark Magister Templi Marble! Panicking over his sweet Gunter, the Ice King goes to Wizard City in order to try and find help, only to discover the coolest, most intimidating secret society of wizards who also just happen to be looking for Marble.
KaBOOM!’s award-winning Adventure Time comics are based on the hit Cartoon Network original series. From the mind of series creator Pendleton Ward and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, Adventure Time follows the unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, best buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants—and always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.
Adventure Time: Ice King #1 (of 6) arrives in comic shops on January 20th with a main cover by the original Adventure Time comic artists Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb for the very low price of $3.99.
