Boom! Studios and Cartoon Network have announced the upcoming release of the limited series Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon from writer Olivia Olson (Marceline on Adventure Time) and artist Slimm Fabert, which continues the award-winning 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!
“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.”
Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #1 will go on sale in January 2019.
