Popverse's top stories of the day

It’s been some time since comic book fans have been able to visit the Land of Ooo, but that’s thankfully about to change, thanks to a new partnership between Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and Oni Press that will bring Adventure Time back to comics. Yeah, we know; it’s pretty slammacow.

The new agreement is multi-layered, and includes bringing back into print the wealth of comic book material originally published by Boom! Studios’ Ka-Boom imprint between 2012 and 2019, beginning this fall with two sizeable collected editions.

“For nearly a decade, the Adventure Time line of comics was a magnet for some of the most intensely talented voices working in the comics medium, drawing in an entirely new generation of readers in the process,” Oni Press editor-in-chief Sierra Hahn said in a statement. “Building upon the genius of Pendleton Ward’s inventive, influential, and iconic animated series, this enormous wealth of comics creativity has been out of print for far too long – and it’s an immense privilege to bring it to Oni Press, where we aim to bring forth new collections that will meet the high expectations of both original fans and new readers alike…and start to craft all-new adventures for Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, and more.”

The first collected edition Oni will be releasing — Adventure Time Compendium Vol. 1 — handily demonstrates Hahn’s point about the talent working on the comics. Collecting the first 35 issues of the series, creators involved include Ryan North, Jim Rugg, Jess Fink, Jeffrey Brown, Kat Philbin, and the late Ian McGinty. The massive collection will be released in October, with November seeing the release of Adventure Time: The Finn and Cake Compendium, collecting Adventure Time with Fionna & Cake #1-6 and Adventure Time with Fionna & Cake: Card Wars #1-6, with creators on this book including Jen Wang, N.D. Stevenson, Lucy Knisley, and Britt Wilson.

The new partnership between Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and Oni also extends beyond collecting previously-released material, however; new Adventure Time comics — the first original comics for the property in over five years — are scheduled to appear in 2025, with details to be released closer to publication.

If all of this puts you in a nostalgic mood for the beloved animated series, good news! the voice cast for the Cartoon Network show are getting back together at ECCC, and Popverse is livestreaming the panel. Yes, Jake The Dog (John DiMaggio), Finn the Human (Jeremy Shada) along with Olvia Olson (Marceline) and Tom Kenny (Ice King) will be taking to the stage together to talk about the show and their experiences, and you can watch the whole thing right here.
