Marcy rocks out hard and Simon gets a second chance in a first look at BOOM! Studios’ “Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon” #2
You know what strikes me most about the cover for the second issue of Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon? It’s that Marcy is in a cave that has dinosaur bones on the wall, and she’s hovering in the air, playing a guitar that is also a literal axe. Righteous.
If grocery stores still had spinner racks, that cover would make me want to pick this issue up and find out what that sweet axe guitar is all about. While picking up comics at the grocery store is sadly a thing of the past, publishers are here to pique your interest with some sneak previews. BOOM! are offering up just that with this first look at Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #2, so check it out below. One of the variants also has the axe guitar, too, so bonus.
Your First Look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #2 by Olivia Olson and Slimm Fabert
Discover The Future of Your Favorite Vampire Queen & Former Ice King in February 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 23, 2019) – BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today revealed a first look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #2 (of 6). Writer Olivia Olson (voice of Marceline on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) bring fans 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. So when Simon’s memories of his life as the Ice King and his memories of Marceline, start slipping away, Marcy recruits Princess Bubblegum to figure out how to get them back. It’s time for some mad science! But if even the maddest of science isn’t enough to fix Simon’s brain, where will Marcy turn next?
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 find themselves 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.
BOOM! Studios has been publishing the New York Times bestselling Adventure Time™ comic books and graphic novels through their KaBOOM! imprint for middle grade readers since 2012 and been honored with Eisner, Harvey, and Diamond Gem Awards for the series.

Both Adventure Time™ books, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now everywhere books are sold.
