Adventure Time‘s Marceline Gets Her Own Comicbook Spinoff, by the Creator of Octopus Pie


Marceline the Vampire Queen is one of the radder characters (if I may say so myself) of Pendleton Ward‘s Adventure Time… I mean, the show has a great extended cast of some pretty awesome princesses like Princess Bubblegum and Lumpy Space Princess, but Marceline… well. She’s a queen.

Boom! Studios is in charge of the Adventure Time comics, and frankly I’m in love with the way they’re putting them together, by hiring not from the paper comics establishment but getting Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics to write (Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb are drawing). It’s paid off, with the comic going to multiple printings. Boom! announced yesterday that they’d be playing on that success with by giving Marceline (and Princess Bubblegum) their own comic miniseries starting this July. And not only are we getting a comic about Adventure Time‘s infamous are-they-saying-what-I-think-they’re-saying? lady couple, it’s going to be written by the internet’s own Meredith Gran, of Octopus Pie. Here are some of the awesome covers for the series, by awesome ladies:

Comics Alliance says this cover is from JAB:

From Lucy Knisley:

From Ming Doyle:

From Chynna Clugston:

From Coleen Coover:

Of course, with everyone getting a comic spinoff now, it’s only a matter of time before Lumpy Space Princess demands her own lumpin’ comic. Marceline and the Scream Queens goes on sale in July, with a back up story from Jen Wang.

    I’m not sure about Lumpy Space Princess though, her voice is what makes this character epic, so I don’t know how well it would do just in print.

    I would also love to see more of Fionna and Cake!

    Adventure Time rules, and Octopus Pie rules. I really want to read this.

    I love LSP, so a comic on her would be absolutely epic to me. I’d probably frame it on my wall, just cuz. 

    On a different note, really looking forward to this comic! It’s got a lot going for it.

    Love Adventure Time!!  I’m partial to Beemo, peppermint butler, and cinnamon bun.  The best part about this show is how silly it is and the weird crazy characters that are introduced each week.

    I want that Colleen Coover design on a t-shirt, like, yesterday. So awesome!

    I’ve been seeing drawings of a flame prince everywhere so maybe we’re getting a second episode of Fionna and Cake

    Octopus Pie + Adventure Time = Me swooning

    So the comic is about Marceline and Bubblegum’s adventures or w/e? I never knew they hung out that much.

    Also that art is awesome but freaking ruined by the ART NOT FINAL. Looks plenty final to me until some idiot smacked that huge-ass lettering all over it.
