Jim McLauchlin, Hero Initiative president said:
“Adventure Time does that sublime job of appealing to kids and adults at the same time. It’s great to see artists who appeal to all ages lend their talents to this as well, Challengers does the same kind of job, with a separate-but-attached store for kids next door called Sidekicks. It’s a great venue to show off this wonderful art and have a great time.”
Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios also added:
“It’s an honor to partner with Hero Initiative to celebrate the Adventure Time phenomenon and support such an important cause, Every page of The Adventure Time 100 Project is a treat for long time fans and for anyone who wants to see their favorite artists draw the world of Adventure Time.”
