Adventure Time 2015 SpOooktacular Incentive Cover by Emily Partridge

Pull on a costume and carve some pumpkins, because Halloween is in the air in the Land of Ooo! Well…actually, it’s summertime in Ooo, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be spooky!

This October, KaBOOM!, an award-winning imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of the network, get into the holiday spirit with a self-contained story about our favorite Vampire Queen, Marceline, in the 48-page one-shot Adventure Time 2015 SpOooktacular!

Hanna K. is a rad storyboard artist for the Adventure Time animated series, and now she’s writing and illustrating an oversized special that takes place before Marceline became the music-loving, bass-playing Vampire Queen. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Marcie before she was the vampire we know and love today, now’s your chance to dive into her past!

“It’s always a treat when we get the chance to learn more about our favorite characters, and Marceline’s backstory is a doozy!” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “What better way to celebrate Halloween than with the spookiest gal in Ooo? And with the talented Hanna K. behind the wheel, we’re in for a wild ride!”

Adventure Time 2015 SpOooktacular arrives in comic shops on October 28th with a main cover by Chrystin Garland for the price of $4.99 under Diamond order code AUG151207. Also available in a limited quantity is a retailer incentive cover by Emily Partridge.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
