Adventure Time: The Flip Side #1 Review

It's Adventure Time...go tell your friends! No, I am not kidding.

The Good

The cover art captures both the look and feel of the TV show without coming off too kiddish or cartoony. The story draws a lot of inspiration from D & D and other RPGs which older readers will no doubt get a chuckle at. The idea that Finn suffers from "Quest Deficiency" is both cute for kids and something older readers can relate to.

The Not So Good

There just wasn't enough book for me. Honestly as a fan of the show I can't get enough of Adventure Time and this book ended too soon for me, although it isn't short by any means. The dialogue felt too kid friendly at times, as the cartoon often gets away with clever innuendo and sneaky lines adults will get and kids will just think is silly.

The Bottom Line

I highly recommend this book for both fans of the show and anyone who wants to understand why this show is so popular. The art is great, the cover is cool, and the story will both entertain and resonate with readers of all ages. Be warned, after reading this comic you will be an Adventure Time fan so be prepared to spend your time watching the cartoon and getting up to speed!
