Based on the immensely popular card game, Munchkin comes to comics! Munchkin takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win. They backstab. They gloat. They whine when someone else backstabs or gloats. If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it’s because he was bored or distracted. After all, even stomping an ant helps you level up. Collects issues #1-4 and contains an offer for an exclusive new Munchkin playable item!

Fionna & Cake Return with Their A-Game in Adventure Time with Fionna & Cake: Card Wars

KaBOOM!, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises have announced the return of Fionna & Cake to comics in the all-new limited series Adventure Time with Fionna & Cake: Card Wars. Writer Jen Wang and artist Britt Wilson come together for a new adventure as Fionna & Cake seek out a worthy opponent for Card Wars champ Cake. As a bonus, each first-printing copy of issue #1 will come with an exclusive Adventure Time: Card Wars card, playable in the Cryptozoic Entertainment card game that itself was created based on an Adventure Time episode of the same name.

Cake is a Card Wars champ who can’t be beat, and Fionna…is really tired of getting beaten! They set off in search of a challenger who can really test Cake’s mettle. When they stumble across some gamer slugs, they think they’ve hit the jackpot, but these guys have never heard of Cake and refuse to even play with her!

The highly anticipated first issue in a six-part limited series, Adventure Time with Fionna & Cake: Card Wars #1 arrives in comic shops on July 15th with a main cover by series writer Jen Wang for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAY151096. Also available in a limited quantity is a subscription cover by Wyeth Yates, a 10 Years incentive cover by Jeffrey Brown, and a retailer incentive cover by John Kovalic.

Kick open the door. Kill the monster. Steal the treasure. Screw over everybody you come in contact with. Welcome to the world of Munchkin, a gathering of stories based on the popular game series. It’s a laugh a minute, pal. Plus, every first printing of every issue will ship with an exclusive card for the game.

Based on the immensely popular card game, the Munchkin comic series takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, the game has since taken on non-fantasy and non-gaming elements, and the new comic series is a direct reflection of that. Munchkin#1 features four stories set in and around the world of the game, featuring Spyke, Flower, and all the other characters, monsters, and settings players have come to love.
