I'm Reading Comeeks

I dedicate this blog to comics in all forms, manga, autobio, superhero, art books, etc.  And of course, since I need a challenge, I've decided that I'll read and write (short) reviews for 365 comics during 2015.

The Time Has Come...

Adventure Time Vol. 9 - Christopher Hastings, Pendleton Ward, Zachary Sterling

For Adventure!


In this volume Finn and Jake become secret agents and discover that "The One True King" of Ooo is raising an army of bears in a plot to overthrow Princess Bubblegum.


There is also some confusion caused by Magic Man, and some interaction for the reader, but it doesn't turn out how it usually does with Magic Man.


Keep your eyes peeled for Finn as a Candy Person, Jake's impersonation of Pepp But and Marci's most adorable bat creature form ever.


Lately I'd picked up the Sunday Comics section of the newspaper and been saddened deep inside for the lack of quality there.  Picking up any Adventure Time comic is like returning to the good old days of comics, only better.


I feel a little sad that newsprint is no longer a good source of comic goodness as it was back in the days of Calvin and Hobbes...but maybe that's just a nostalgia for a time I never really knew.


AT still provides me with that nostalgic feeling of reading with a grin on my face.  It doesn't follow strips like Calvin and Hobbes did, but the way Finn and Jake play off of each other and the adventures and scrapes they get into and out of remind me a lot of the young boy and his tiger friend.
