Customer Reviews

I decided to go with 5 stars because reading the comics was just like watching the show.
Jessica Root
This had all the nonsensical humor and sensitivity I see in the cartoon and introduced more fun characters for me to love.
Chelsea
The colors are vibrant and beautiful, the paper is substantial and the whole thing feels like a quality book.

Love this show, love this comic, sooo happy to be able to finally get it in TPB!

Pros:
Ryan North is a perfect fit for Adventure Time!
Story kept as canon as possible!
TPB = no ads!
Cover gallery for the huge number of alternate covers, many by popular indie artists!
Includes Free Comic Book Day story (idk about you but when I made to my my local comic shop for FCBD they had already given out all of the adventure time books)

Cons:
B-side stories by different writers/artists not included (ryan north posted that they would be collected in a different trade at a later date, I was unable to get anything from boom to confirm this though) :c

I am very pleased with this purchase. This volume includes the first 4 comics in the series. It is way more colorful and art driven then I was expecting. The pages look and feel more like a high quality magazine then a comic. This is a perfect purchase for people who like the show, or to introduce young readers to comics.

The comics reprinted in this trade paperback are great and will be enjoyed by people of all ages. Some fans will be disappointed to find that the back-up stories are not reprinted in this edition, but their their exclusion makes the story arc more accessible to casual readers. This is a pretty good trade paperback overall, but I'd personally recommend the "Mathematical Edition" to more hardcore fans of the series.

Adventure Time Vol. 1 collects the first four issues of the series and includes a cover gallery.

When I first heard there were comics of the show, I wasn't initially sold on the idea, and got a 'cheap, shoddy cash tie in' vibe. ...But the recommendations were all so good I overcame my wariness and bought the first collected volume.

I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. The comic conveys the same wit and humor as the show, and being in-canon, within the same continuity as the cartoon, makes it feel all the better, like it's not just some cheap side-project.

The "Adventure Time TP Vol 01" collects the primary story from the first four issues, forming what feels like a complete episode in this book. As my understanding of it goes, the issues have a 'primary' story that runs alongside 'secondary' stories illustrated by independent artists. The Trade Paperbacks collect only the primary story, but if you're like me and tend to wait for collected volumes like this, instead of purchasing individual issues as they come out, this is still well worth the price.

I heartily recommend this to anyone who's a fan of the show!

My 10yo son and 8yo daughter love this book. They read it themselves, and out loud to their 6yo brother & 3yo sister. These are fun reading books. My wife isn't fond of the whole Adv. Time. but they are very excited and play with the toys and read the books all the time. Their mind is energized as they play make believe and use the stuffed characters to make all sorts of scenarios for hours on end.

I decided to go with 5 stars because reading the comics was just like watching the show. I couldn't tell a difference with creators. The comic kept me giggling just like the show and the adventures are all new! I simply loved it and if you love Adventure Time too, you should pick this bad boy up today.

I LOVE the little notes that the writers leave in the margin. Would buy again just for that. The story itself is as lovely and charming as you would expect for adventure time. The print quality is spectacular and the images are stellar. I so badly want to frame some pages.
