    And maybe another time Ill talk about my theory that Billy the Hero is an AU Grunkle Ford who survived the Great Mushroom War and became functionally immortal. Read Full Review

    While this oversized one-shot could have been a bit more new reader/tv watcher friendly, it is a great comic for Adventure Time fans and a fun story for anyone who wants to believe that there is a hero in all of us.  Christopher Hastings and Ian McGinty make sure that everyone can get nice and comfy in the Land of Ooo with music and fun and if you're not careful you might learn something before it's done.  Hey, Hey...Wait a minute.  Strike that.  Reverse it..."Adventure Time!"

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Mar 16, 2016

    "Adventure Time" #50 is a successful one-shot story that makes points about free will and a hero's duty and commitment and honors Finn as part of that tradition. However, Hastings' emphasis on advancing the concept of the Eternal Hero comes with some cost to other characters, who are equally -- if not more -- beloved and iconic. Read Full Review

    With a plot steeped deep inAdventure Timelore,Adventure Time#50 wasn't for me, but more knowledgeable fans may get a kick out of it. The comic is technically sound though with creative lettering from Steve Wands to show how overblown and melodramatic the Lich is, bright and spooky colors from Maarta Laiho, and fun, expressive art from Ian McGinty. If you like a certain type of pet or hero cycles, the last few pages will be a treat. Read Full Review
