Adventure Time #1 Review
The comic itself greatly resembles the TV Show and even seems to fill in the blank of what happened to the lich and that happy snail that waves in every episode. The start of the comic mocks the beginning of the show, it turns out Jakes just stretched his hand with a video camera it seems. Were immediately introduced to a bad situation in which the lich has gained and magic bag that can endlessly suck anything into it. This has some great visuals as layers of land of ooo are left visible.
The art's okay, but it just won't ever look as good as the shows. I hope they try and be more playful with the art, maybe do more things outside the panel like below. The indie comic backup was funny, I'm so glad they chose to incorporate those into each issue.
I look forward to more issues and eventually giant robots!
As of now I think the stories are considered canon for Adventure Time or in continuity so if something appears in the comic it will look the same in the show like eggplant princess would look the same even if she first appeared in the comic.
