ComiXology launches their comiXology Originals program today with the fun, all-ages title Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises. Unveiled last October, comiXology Originals is a new program featuring exclusive comic content available only on comiXology and Kindle. Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular is available today for $3.99 on comiXology and Kindle or free at launch to comiXology Unlimited subscribers and as part of the comiXology Unlimited 30-day free trial.
Based on Cartoon Network’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Adventure Time, the Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular from BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network Enterprises features the fan-favorite character Marshall Lee, the Vampire King. Marshall Lee is the male counterpart of Marceline the Vampire Queen from the hugely popular Fionna and Cake universe.
Framed by a fully painted cover by cartoonist Fábio Moon, the 22-page Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular contains three all-new original Marshall Lee stories and an original song:
- “Not Funny” by writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Audrey Mok. The lead story features New York Times bestselling writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer, Supergirl) with artist Audrey Mok (Josie and the Pussycats) and follows Marshall Lee and his uncontrollable laughter at unfunny things.
- “The Bravest Prince” by Melanie Gillman and artist Trungles. Writer Melanie Gillman (As the Crow Flies) teams up with artist Trungles (Fresh Romance) for a story in which Prince Gumball witnesses Marshall Lee’s fear of…flowers.
- “Disqualified” by S.M. Vidaurri and artist Asia Kendrick-Horton. Writer S.M. Vidaurri (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches) joins with artist Asia Kendrick-Horton (Steven Universe) for a story in which Prince Gumball attempts to win a competition by trying to be more villainous than Marshall Lee.
- “It’s Not Hard To Be Bad” Written and drawn by S.M. Vidaurri. Vidaurri closes out the issue by composing a song for Marshall Lee to sing while playing guitar in a spectacular one pager.
In addition to this exciting launch, comiXology is having a BOOM! Studios discount sale on an array of Adventure Time comic books and trades. Readers new and old can stock up and save today through January 23rd.
