Get a first look at "Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon" #1

You’d think that with a concept that involves a vampire queen and a former ice king going on adventures, Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon would be nothing but broad humor and frenetic action. It may certainly contain those elements, but the description here belies something a bit unexpected, but welcome just the same: a whole lot of heart. Having never watched the show, I’m not familiar with Marcy or Simon, but the idea that these two characters are going around making amends for Simon’s past misdeeds while Marcy is constantly having to worry about the possibility of losing her long-time friend? That’s some touching stuff, and it makes me want to check this series out.

BOOM! have released an early look at the first issue of the upcoming miniseries, so check that out below while I try to catch up on the cartoon here.

Your First Look at ADVENTURE TIME: MARCY & SIMON #1 by Olivia Olson and Slimm Fabert 
Discover The Future of Your Favorite Vampire Queen & Former Ice King in January 2019 

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 13, 2018) – BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today revealed a captivating first look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 (of 6), the start of an all-new limited series in January 2019. Writer Olivia Olson (voice of Marceline on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) unveil the exciting official comic book continuation of the Emmy® Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series by revealing what’s next for the reformed Ice King and Vampire Queen Marceline in comic book form.

Marcy and Simon's friendship has endured over 900 years and through bouts of insanity and amnesia. After the events of Adventure Time™ Season 10, we get to see the Vampire Queen and former Ice King rediscover themselves and their ever-evolving relationship as they tour the Land of Ooo in order to make amends for Simon's past misdeeds. But the transition from evil Ice King to gentle Simon isn't without its consequences, and Marcy will have to face her greatest fear once again: losing Simon.

A modern day fable, the Emmy® Award–winning animated series Adventure Time™ has become a global success since its premiere in 2010, attracting adult and kid viewers in their millions over the course of 10 seasons. It follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always findthemselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. Adventure Time™ is created by Pendleton Ward and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.

Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on January 16, 2019.
