From The BOOM! Studios Press Release: BOOM! Studios Announces ADVENTURE TIME: MARCY & SIMON by Olivia Olson and Slimm Fabert: Discover The Future of Your Favorite Vampire Queen & Former Ice King in January 2019

BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today announced ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 (of 6), kicking off an all-new limited series epic in January 2019. Writer Olivia Olson (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 titular Vampire Queen and the former Ice King

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!

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.

“Craziness and wonder aside, the best thing about Adventure Time™ is the show’s ability to make you feel,” said writer Olivia Olson. “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 Time™ alive undead.”

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

“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,” said artist Slimm Fabert. “Olivia’s script is excellent, and I’m very excited to see where the story goes from here.”

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by Lisa Dubois (Rugrats), Sofie Drozdova (Regular Show) and Ashley Morales.

“There’s a lot of reasons to love the world of Adventure Time™, from the unforgettable adventures to the surprises around every corner, but it’s the characters who leave a permanent mark on every fan. And when it comes to favorites, there’s few more beloved than Marcy and Simon,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s an honor to have Olivia, the one and only voice of Marceline, join us to bring these new stories to life exclusively in comic book form alongside the amazing visuals created by Slimm. This series is a treat for every Adventure Time™ fan who wants to know what happened to Marcy and Simon after the epic Cartoon Network series finale!”

Cartoon Network This Week Episode 24 Best Of San Diego Comic Con 2018 Part One

Cartoon Network This Week Episode 24 Best Of San Diego Comic Con 2018 Part One

In this week’s episode of Cartoon Network This Week, Sam is at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 to check out Cartoon Network’s events at the convention. There will be two parts covering news, interviews and highlights at San Diego Comic-Con, in part one, Sam has a chat with the creator of Steven Universe – Rebecca Sugar and the voice of Garnet – Estelle, shares some highlights from the last-ever Adventure Time panel at the convention and meets the cast of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe gem landscape themed booth with giant Crystal Gem character inflatables and exclusive Cartoon Network merchandise are also shown in this episode, also not forgetting, Rupert shows off his superpower – Tongue Attack.

Throughout the convention, Cartoon Network have given away 4,000 Steven Universe tote bags and 14,000 buttons to fans. At the Cartoon Network booth, Steven Universe fans had the opportunity to have a photo with the Crystal Gems (in front of a green screen with an option to choose a “battle” background or the Made With Love Beach City” background) and use a variety of props, which includes a variety of props from the show, including Garnet’s gauntlets, Amethyst’s whip, Pearl’s spear and Steven’s shield.

After visiting the Cartoon Network booth, Sam then visits the Mondo’s booth to talk about the convention exclusive Adventure Time 7″ vinyl record, Mondo has partnered with Cartoon Network before, hosted two Adventure Time art galleries and released the Over The Garden Wall soundtrack on vinyl. The exclusive Adventure Time vinyl features the tracks “Friends Don’t Fight” (both with vocals and instrumental) and “Manlorette Party” and also featured artwork by JJ Harrison, each record was sold for $12 (plus tax), the vinyl is a limited edition release, so Adventure Time fans had to make sure they’re able to get a copy in time. Sam tries to convince Mondo to release a Rupert The Seal record, but they’re not interested, so Rupert gets his revenge with his superheroic tongue attack!. 😀

Afterwards, Sam walks over to the Horton Grand Theatre for the “Superheroes of Body Positivity: A Conversation With Steven Universe’s Rebecca Sugar and Friends”, while there, he talks to Rebecca Sugar and Estelle. According to Rebecca, the Steven Universe and Dove Self-Esteem project all started off when Dove noticed the different body types and shapes in Steven Universe, as they noticed its something they haven’t really seen in a cartoon before, Rebecca then mentioned that this was deliberate and something she really cared about. When the partnership was formed, Rebecca and the Steven Universe crew had special access to body confidence research and psychologists. Sam then asks Estelle what she thought on why people look up to Garnet, from Estelle’s perspective, Garnet validated their knowledge of self and knowing they can deal with any situation. Sam then mentioned the recently released Steven Universe/Dove Self-Esteem Project video featuring the song “We Deserve To Shine”, Rebecca wrote the song herself, she feels that the song encourages kids to be seen and then inspire each other.

Cartoon Network USA also released a behind-the-scenes video for the “We Deserve To Shine” music video, which can been seen below:

The entire “Superheroes of Body Positivity: A Conversation With Steven Universe’s Rebecca Sugar and Friends” panel can viewed on the YouTube embed below:

After meet up with Rebecca and Estelle, Sam heads over to the Indigo Ballroom for the very last Adventure Time panel, in this segment, we see John DiMaggio (voice of Jake the Dog) singing the infamous “Bacon Pancakes” song in front of a packed room, then Sam meets up with Jeremy Shada (voice of Finn), Niki Yang (voice of BMO), Tom Kenny (voice of Ice King), Olivia Olsen (voice of Marceline), all of them thought the last panel was really emotional as it was one last goodbye to the show. The show’s voice acting cast ended the panel with a singalong of the show’s theme song, Sam also asks the cast to perform some of his favourite lines from the show.

Full video of Adventure Time’s final panel at San Diego Comic Con:

Adventure Time fans shouldn’t worry that much that the show is coming to an end, as BOOM Comics (under their Kaboom imprint) are releasing Season Eleven in comic book form, which means fans will be able to find out what happens after the aftermath of the Great Gum War although the show has technically ended, Eisner Award-winning writer Sonny Liew will be writing the comic and will feature artwork by Marina Julia and also main cover art by Jorge Corona, along with variant covers by Julie Benbasset, Audrey Mok and Paul Pope.

Sam then heads over to the Teen Titans Go! To The Movies advanced screening event and meets up with the movie’s/show’s cast, Greg Cipes even dressed up as Beast Boy for the event (including green makeup and pointy ears!), Sam asks them what’s it’s like working with Will Arnett and Nicolas Cage. Teen Titans Go! To The Movies will be released in cinemas across the United States this Friday (27th July).

That’s the end of part one and pretty much covers the first half of CN’s events at San Diego Comic Con, more to come out in part two next week, including the main Steven Universe panel and the “Cartoon Network Creators: Drawing on Inspiration” mega panel featuring show creators Matt Burnett and Ben Levin (Craig of the Creek), Daniel Chong (We Bare Bears), Diego Molano (Victor and Valentino) and Julia Pott (Summer Camp Island) and the creator of OK K.O.!
