WHY WE LOVE IT: Not only are the Banana Guards hilarious as the Candy Kingdom's protectors, but this series is written by Kent Osborne, one of the current writers of the ADVENTURE TIME show. Kent is responsible for some of our favorite episodes of the show and we're thrilled to have him write his first comic book.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: If you love ADVENTURE TIME, you can't get beat a comic series written by one of the show's writers and the creator of Root Beer Guy! Also great if you like bananas. WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Turns out that there is a lot to being a Banana Guard-but being a Banana is not mandatory. This crazy adventure follows Root Beer Guy as he starts his search for new recruits among Ooo's citizens. Only the best will do in his quest to protect the Candy Kingdom!

    Lastly, the art was great. Full ten points because of the awesome coloring. The style was slightly different than the cartoon, but certainly not in a bad way. My absolute favorite, though, was the cover! I loved the cover and the variants included! It was such a unique take on Princess Bubblegum and I am absolutely in love with it. I feel like I'm going to buy this book purely for the cover. Read Full Review

    This is definitely a book kids will enjoy reading. It's fun for those of us that are kids at heart too. I may have to keep reading this story arc just to see what crazy things will happen. I'd love to know what happens once we get inside the Banana Guard Academy. I have a feeling it will be disastrous and very amusing. I can't wait to see what other fun touches they add to the art. Plus, I really love that they show people following their dreams in this issue. I think that's important in a book with kids as their target audience. One a less serious note I can safely say my favorite character in this issue is Mr.. Gingerbread Muto. He's slightly terrifying and amazing. I also hope that Root Beer Guy continues to narrate as the story continues. At the end of the day I'm happy to see that whether it's the cartoon or the comic, Adventure Time is something you can enjoy at any age. Read Full Review
