    The art, by Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, is a perfect fit for the AT universe. Lisa Moore provides additional coloring for the issue and the end result is a saccharine sweet Technicolor dream. The back-up story, written by Alexis Frederick-Frost and illustrated by Andrew Arnold, is a cute meditation on the power of comics. Embedded within it is a handy instructional guide to making one's own comics with household supplies and an important life lesson for readers, young and old: Comics are a powerful thing and one has to decide if they're to use their creative powers for good, a la Finn and Jake, or evil, like the Ice King. It's a no brainer, really. Don't be the Ice King. No one likes that guy. Read Full Review

    On a whole the Adventure Time comic isnt dissimilar from the show it was born from. All the elements are all there to make it a success. The tongue-in-cheek humor, over the head of children jokes, outside the margin messages. Its perfect for children and adults, again just like the show. Read Full Review

    "Adventure Time" #12 is just another example of why this licensed comic is one of the best on the stands. It takes the tone of the show and it transports it onto the comic page effectively. This issue is a little thin on the actual storytelling but the main story more than makes up for it with a laughs per page ratio. Read Full Review

    While this issue isn't the greatest of the 12 issue run so far, it succeeds in remaining extremely faithful to the Adventure Time mythos and ethos, in addition to being an entertaining and enjoyable read. While the cliff-hanger ending didn't leave me on the edge of my seat, I'm still looking forward to seeing our trio of characters get into more trouble with the next issue. Read Full Review
