BOOM! Studios Gets Sweet with Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1

Candy has a knack (sweet tooth if you will) for getting kids in trouble. It makes them do crazy things, all for the sake of one bite of glorious chocolate. Sometimes, it even prompts madcap capers to ensue, only to be documented in books such as Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1 from BOOM! Studios, written by Yuko Ota and Ananth Panagariay and illustrated by Ian McGinty.

Something rotten is afoot in the Land of Ooo, and someone's gotta sniff out what it is! When Finn and Jake are suddenly kidnapped, Princess Bubblegum deputizes two of her most trusted citizens...Peppermint Butler and Cinnamon Bun?! The crime movie homages come hard and fast in the Candy Kingdom that never sleeps.

The issue is slated to hit stores July 17 (Diamond Code MAY130954). It ships with main covers by Josceline Fenton and Magnolia Porter as well as incentive covers by Rebecca Mock and Tessa Stone.

Full press release below.
