    Overall, this is an extremely well done first foray into this series and should be a great read for anyone who already loves the Adventure Time mythos or really just wants a great book featuring some amazing art duties. It also doesnt hurt that there is a backup story done by the very talented Noelle Stevenson (known as Gingerhazing on the internet) so this is really the perfect first issue to get you excited for more Fionna and Cake.

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jan 6, 2013

    Kaboom! obviously wants to take as much advantage of having the Adventure Time license as they possibly can, and as long as they keep hiring such talented creators to do so, I'll be ready and willing to support their efforts. Fionna & Cake manages to fit into the strange and odd stylings of Adventure Time while also bringing some new things to the table. I'm really excited to see how this mini plays out, because this opening is pretty great. Read Full Review

    The backup story “The Sweater Bandit” by Noelle Stevenson is cute, but aside from that offers nothing else besides a way to feature some of the other gender-swapped characters, Marshall Lee and Prince Gumball, but overall gives us a great encompassing view into this world. Read Full Review

    All in all, another quality entry in BOOM!'s Adventure Time catalog that stays true to the source while forging ahead with fun stories. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Jan 4, 2013

    It's an entertaining little book, not quite reaching the ecstatic highs of “Adventure Time” but not missing a bit of magic like “Marceline.” Fionna and Cake are amusing as concepts and this is a great opportunity for the Adventure Time world to truly expand; having Allegri flesh out this iteration of their world a bit more in a way that perhaps the show doesn't really allow for is a fantastic move. And while the duo may not be as easy to understand as Finn and Jake, their adventure is still definitely worth your time. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Andrea Speed Jan 6, 2013

    Am I saying buy this? Yes, yes I am. Support this with your dollars, and who knows? Maybe more publishers will be willing to put out female centric action comics, with actual females on the staff. I know it's a dream, but I can do that, can't I? (Oh, and check out Lumpy Space Prince on the cover! I do hope he gets introduced in the comic soon.) Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jan 7, 2013

    "Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake" #1 is hilarious, clever and a great time, and if that isn't enough by itself, I've never seen such a successful example of gender-swapping. After reading it, (dare I say it?) I'm fonder of Fionna and Cake than Finn and Jake, and I didn't expect that to be the case. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Jan 7, 2013

    I'm new to the whole Adventure Time thing and I realize I'm not necessarily the intended audience. With that in mind, I enjoyed the comic. The art was solid, the story had me smiling and laughing a few times, and when it was over, I wanted to see what else there was to the whole Adventure Time thing. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Brett Murph Jan 8, 2013

    I may not care for many comicbooks based on cartoons, but this one's an exception.  That's all due to Allegri's storytelling and unique art. The humor's a bit dicey, but the creativity more than compensates for it. Read Full Review

    Geek Smash - Quiana Howard Jan 11, 2013

    The comic although visually similar to the show, was a letdown story-wise. “Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake” #1 has trouble finding its footing to develop a concrete foundation for a sturdy comic. Hopefully the kinks will be worked out by issue # 2. Read Full Review
