An announcement made on Wednesday, February 21st, 2024 heralds the return of Adventure Time comics. A partnership between Oni Press and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products & Cartoon Network promises Adventure Time comics old and new. First up are a pair of softcover compendiums collecting classic Adventure Time and Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake comics, arriving in autumn 2024. And then in 2025, “an array of all-new series and graphic novels” based on the franchise will be making their way to your local comic book shop and/or public library (watch out for Pagelings).

Arriving first is the Adventure Time Compendium Vol. 1. Scheduled for publication in October 2024, this volume features a host of all-star comics creator talent. Here’s the description from the publisher:

“Collecting the first 35 issues of the Eisner Award-winning run led by New York Times best-selling writer Ryan North (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) that the A.V. Club heralded as “an experience…[that] explores the vast opportunities that graphic storytelling presents,” the first in Oni’s new line of shelf-busting, softcover Adventure Time compendium collections features contributions from acclaimed artists Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb (Midas), Mike Holmes (Wings of Fire), Jim Rugg (Street Angel), T. Zysk, Kat Philbin, David Cutler (Darkhold), Ian McGinty (Welcome to Showside), Jesse Tise (Electric Candyland), Carey Pietsch (The Adventure Zone), Yumi Sakugawa (I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You), Liz Prince (Regular Show), Becca Tobin (Frontier 9), Missy Peña (Steven Universe), Jeffrey Brown (My Teacher Is a Robot), Jess Fink (SPX), and Dustin Nguyen (Batman: Lil’ Gotham).”

And following in November 2024 with an equally talented roster of creators is Adventure Time: The Fionna and Cake Compendium. Here’s the description of that title:
