Your First Look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #3 by Olivia Olson and Slimm Fabert

Discover The Future of Your Favorite Vampire Queen & Former Ice King in March 2019

BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today revealed a first look at ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #3 (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 Cartoon Network Emmy® Award-winning series by revealing what’s next for the once immortal Simon and the still immortal 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, there’s nowhere left to turn except the source of darkest magic itself—Hunson Abadeer, Marceline’s dad and evil overlord of the Nightosphere. But of course, things get complicated when Marcy confronts her demonic father and asks for help saving Simon: dark magic always has a cost.

A modern-day fable, the critically-acclaimed Adventure Time™ has become a global success since its premiere in 2010, attracting adult and kid viewers alike 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.

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON is Olson’s third writing contribution to the expanded literary world of the eponymous franchise, previously collaborating with her father Martin Olson (the voice of “Hunson Abadeer”) on The Adventure Time™ Encyclopedia. The two also co-authored Adventure Time™: The Enchiridion & Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook, written from a first-person perspective through Marceline's diary entries about when she and Simon first met. Both Adventure Time™ books, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now everywhere books are sold.

“Marcy’s relationship with her father is almost as complicated as her relationship with Simon and both are important figures in her life so it stands to reason that when she’s got nowhere else to go, she turns to Hunson for help,” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “But the Lord of Evil is a demonic being by nature and even his love for his Vampire Queen daughter can’t shake his inherent need to sow chaos so the results of his dark magical help might not leave Simon any better off than he was before.”

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #3 features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by artists Lisa DuBois and Danielle Chuatico.

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers including licensed series such as Over The Garden Wall, Regular Show, Steven Universe, Peanuts, and Garfield, along with original series like Mega Princess by Kelly Thompson and Brianne Drouhard, Bodie Troll by Jay Fosgitt, Ruinworld by Derek Laufman, and The Deep by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer.
