Adventure Time Volume 2: Pixel Princess Sells Through First Printing

Adventure Time Vol. 2: Pixel Princesses

Folks are pretty keen on Adventure Time. The zany show really hammers home the craziness as well, something that's been effectively conveyed through the comics from BOOM! Studios as well. In fact, it comes across so well, that Adventure Time Volume 2: Pixel Princess has sold out at the distributor level upon arrival and before hitting stores on December 4th. It's the second longform story by Danielle Corsetto and Zachary Sterling.

In it, your favorite Adventure Time princesses are getting a chance to take the main stage as they learn the importance of friendship and what it really means to wear a crown. It’s a book about how princesses can overcome their differences while at the same time kicking butt and taking names. Princess gatherings aren’t always tea parties and doilies—there is a lot more to being a princess that one might think.

BOOM! Studios has rushed back to a second printing on Adventure Time Volume 2: Pixel Princess original graphic novel and additional copies will be available at distributors in the coming weeks. Full press release below.
