This January, KaBOOM!, an award-winning imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of the network, are pleased to present the six-issue limited series Adventure Time: Ice King. Storytellers Emily Partridge (Adventure Time) and Pranas Naujokaitis (Uncle Grandpa), along with artist Natalie Andrewson (Lumberjanes), focus on one of the most tragic and hilarious characters in the Land of Ooo in an exciting new adventure that really shows what makes the Ice King tick.
The Ice King has always been there, kidnapping princesses, messing with Finn and Jake, and generally being a weirdo. But there’s way more to him than that! He’s a deep, thoughtful person with a heart full of love! Or...maybe he just really wants to marry a princess. Either way, this is one journey the citizens of Ooo aren’t likely to forget!
“The Ice King is one of the strangest and most intriguing characters in Adventure Time,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “The more we learn about him, the more questions we have! Emily, Pranas, and Natalie will be giving us a closer look at this character as they join us for our first Ice King-centric series!”
Ice King wakes up one morning to find Gunter missing and a ransom note from someone called Dark Magister Templi Marble! Panicking over his sweet Gunter, Ice King goes to Wizard City to find help and discovers the coolest, most intimidating secret society of wizards who are also looking for Marble.
KaBOOM!'s award-winning Adventure Time comics are based on the hit Cartoon Network original series. From the mind of series creator Pendleton Ward and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, Adventure Time follows the unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, best buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants—and always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.
Adventure Time: Ice King #1 (of 6) arrives in comic shops on January 20th with a main cover by the original Adventure Time comic artists Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb for the price of $3.99. Also available in a limited quantity is a subscription variant by Corin Howell and a retailer incentive cover by Wyeth Yates.
