Hey guys! Yuko liked this page so much she went ahead and toned it.
Yuko drew a couple of our characters as Animal Crossing buddies, including Penny and Walter! Pretty cute:
There are a few exciting things going on right now:
- BUZZ! is up for preorder on Amazon! Drawn by Tessa Stone, written by me! We're both super pumped about this book!
- We've got a ton of books, t-shirts and other great stuff over in our Topatoco store! Check it out!
- Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1 is in stores now! I'm reblogging all the variant covers on tumblr once a day. #1 got this lovely review on MTV Geek:
(written by Ananth Panagariya and Yuko Ota, art by Ian McGinty, published by Kaboom/Boom! Studios)
Boom! Studios seems to release a new Adventure Time comic on almost a weekly basis lately, expanding from one core title to an entire line of tie-in miniseries focusing on the various bizarre denizens of the Ooo-niverse. And what’s been amazing so far is that each of the books has held to a uniformly high standard of quality, and managed to showcase creators’ individual visions while utilizing characters from this Cartoon Network owned property.
In fact, this issue (the first of a series focusing on Princess Bubblegum and her erstwhile assistant sweets), is one of the best Adventure Time comics yet. Writers Ananth Panagariya and Yuko Ota take Peppermint Butler and Cinnamon Bun, deputize them as ‘protectors of the kingdom’, and let the insanity roll. Artist Ian McGinty has a distinctly kinetic style that’s perfectly suited to the rubbery, free-flowing characters, using a variety of angles and close-ups to convey emotion and add comedic emphasis. And together, this team has created not simply a good licensed comic, but a bizarre work of sugar-coated fantasy that’s fit for all ages.
I think that's everything! See you soon!
