    Adventure Time Comics is, then, an art jam.Adventure Time as a show has been eating up the animation landscape for almost a decade now and seems to be this generation's"well, I'm not sure what.Tiny Toons, perhaps, but the show is definitelysomething and its mark on animation and childhoods everywhere will be felt for a long time. TheAdventure Time comic is another opportunity to bridge the television-to-comics gap for many kids, but even better,Adventure Time Comics is a chance to introduce kids to the beauty and variety of comics as an art form. This is worth a look, or better, worth handing to someone who needs a bridge intocomics. Read Full Review

    The weak point of the story is he artwork by Liam Sharp. I prefer year one artist Nicola Scott. But a weakness is relative in a story so well crafted. Some shots, like Wonder Woman plunging through Urzkartaga looked like super heroics of a bygone era and so were less satisfying. Yet for such a jungle epic, he is the natural choice.

    I think some people might hesitate to buy this because it's not part of a several-issue story or a whole-issue story in itself; however, I think the opposite thing should motivate you. I think it's a great idea to have a short collection of stories from different artists with different visions, and I think it makes for a fun single-issue experience that's otherwise missing in the age of the trade. There are automatically more ways to engage with and appreciate Adventure Timeeven if you don't love every single story in this issue, and that's refreshing. It's also a great way to discover writer/artists who are doing great work elsewhere in comics. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Aug 26, 2016

    When I saw this new relaunch was already going down theDoomsday well I was concerned we would have another gimmick story that leans heavily on nostalgia. Instead it used Doomsday as a vehicle to remind us what is great about Superman yet at the same time letting us know this will not simply be a retelling of what came before. There are tons of story breadcrumbs to follow from who is this human Clark Kent to how will Lex Luthor and Superman coincide to who is Mr. Oz and what does he actually want. Within the laying of those breadcrumbs we got an exciting fight that demonstrated Supermans tactical mind as much as his bulging muscles. This along with the Superman series have brought the character back from the dead in more ways than one. Simply put it feels awesome to be excited for a Superman comic once again. Read Full Review

    Some very nice art on this as well. I liked Romitas work on this from the get go, and he displays a firm hand with scenes both human and super-human, as well as the wild tech required by the story. Read Full Review

    Project-Nerd - Alex Ampadu Aug 12, 2016

    Adventure Time Comics #1 is a solid introduction to the world of Ooo. The series is clearly intended for fans of the cartoon, serving as a companion piece to the popular show. Readers who are foreign to the world of Adventure Time should probably steer clear of this comic and start with the cartoon. Nothing is explained in this issue and no context is given for the characters. You definitely need to have an understanding of the property before jumping in. Fans who are familiar with the cartoon will find the comic a refreshing addition to the series but don't expect any new ground to be broken. Read Full Review
