Graphic Novel Review: Adventure Time Volume #1

Adventure Time Vol. 1 (Issues 1-4) by Ryan North – Paperback, 113 pages – Published February 1st 2013 by Titan Publishing Company

I love the show and just had to read this. Now I’m possibly in love with it.

The story is simple yet great; The Lich is sucking up the world into his bag and Finn and Jake must save everyone. They are accompanied by some fabulous characters – Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, Desert Princess, The Ice King – and there are some hilarious pieces of dialogue. All the characters have funny, well-developed personalities that you can’t help but fall in love with.

I also like how the fourth wall is often broken – Marceline moans at the readers, and fake “The End” pages are included for humour. It gives the novel a unique feel that I really enjoyed.

The artwork is amazing. Like, absolutely awesome. So much colour! And it’s all so clear and beautiful. The only problem with the appearance in this novel is that the text at the bottom of some pages is a strange, pale green that is pretty hard to read against the white background of the pages.

Toward the back of the book, there are also tons of different cover images, all in different art styles. I loved them all! They were a great touch to the novel.

 

I was very tempted to give this 5 stars, but I don’t think it’s quite there. But 4.5 stars for sure!866A98B32CBD639D32E20CEBF70E4491
