Preview: Adventure Time #5
A new story arc debuts in Adventure Time #5, which is available now in comics stores. Based on the Cartoon Network show, the Adventure Time comic has quickly developed a following, in part because of its stable of talented artists and writers (this issue features variant covers by Eleanor Davis (Stinky), James Kochalka (Johnny Boo), and Mike Krahulik (Penny Arcade), as well as a bonus story by comics legend Paul Pope).
Here’s a sneak peek at the new issue; variant covers are at the end. (Click images to enlarge.)
