Fans of Adventure Time and Regular show are in for a treat later this year, as BOOM! Studios has announced it will be crossing over the two beloved cartoons in an upcoming comic series. Published by KaBOOM! (an imprint of BOOM!), the series is titled Adventure Time/Regular Show, and its plot line will consist of the following (via Entertainment Weekly):
Adventure Time‘s Princess Bubblegum sends Finn and Jake on a quest to find The Power, the only thing that can save Ooo from the powerful new villain threatening to conquer it. Only there’s one hitch — Regular Show‘s Skips is hiding it. But when Finn and Jake show up in Mordecai and Rigby’s city on their quest for The Power, it strains an existing tension between the two fun-loving bros. To make matters worse worse, the ensuing trip back to Ooo sparks problems between Finn and Jake, putting two friendships in danger.
The comic will feature the creative team of Conor McCreery (Kill Shakespeare) handling script duties and Phil Murphy, who penciled an Adventure Time comic back in 2012. McCreery explained his approach when handling two of the most popular properties in Cartoon Network’s catalog.
“Adventure Time and Regular Show are two of the funniest things ever. They are so weird, with a crazy internal logic I love,” he said. “I love stories that jam in a ton, and this book is going to do that. I’ve been trying to sneak in as many references to the shows as possible, while still leaving plenty of space for your favorite pairs of bros and their best friends.”
McCreery later provided a tease of what readers will encounter in the crossover, “Expect a LOT of craziness. Expect a lot of friendship. Expect monsters. Expect punches. Expect patoots. Maybe even expect… Hambonning! Plus, how much fun is it to have these guys meet and hang with each other? Oh, and it’s got a totally math new villain!”
