This is the last volume of the Adventure Time comics, and I can say that saying goodbye to these wonderful stories feels just as bittersweet as when the series ended. The brilliance of AT comics was that they toon advantage of their medium but remained true to the show. I’m beyond satisfied and happy for having gone on this adventure that stands very much on its own.
A worthy conclusion to the Adventure Time comic series, this volume brings back some of the earlier artists and writers from the series’ run, including Ryan North and Mariko Tamaki. As someone who hasn’t quite gotten around to finishing the TV show, I appreciated the more nostalgic feel of these last few stories. Magic Man is always a fun antagonist, and I really enjoyed BMO telling stories about a new puppy hero who was only tangentially related to Finn and Jake. I especially enjoyed the Fionna and Cake comic, with Cake’s stories nestled into the overarching plot. Well, at least until that last one, which kind of seemed to torpedo everything with a tragic cliffhanger. Oh well!
