Party-Hop Happening in Adventure Time: Masked Mayhem


The Land of Ooo is rife with madness and mayhem. It's one of the few places that would have a slew of costume parties and not enough time to attend them. In Adventure Time: Masked Mayhem by Kate Leth, Bridget Underwood, Drew Green and Vaughn Pinpin, BMO and Jake are planning to hit all the parties.

“We’re thrilled to have Kate and Bridget back for more Adventure Time stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “These original graphic novels give us a chance to see all sorts of characters teaming up for madcap adventures throughout Ooo, and we’re excited to continue bringing them to fans.”

Detective BMO and his sidekick, Jake, are on the case when they discover that every party they attend has one thing in common: a prankster! Join them as they travel all across Ooo to catch the culprit while still enjoying some fun times with friends in this 160 page, full-color adventure. KaBOOM!'s award-winning Adventure Time comics are based on the hit Cartoon Network original series. From the mind of series creator Pendleton Ward and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, Adventure Time follows the unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, best buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants—and always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.

The Adventure Time: Masked Mayhem original graphic novel (6” x 9”, 160 pages, full color) arrives in comic shops on November 11th and in bookstores November 17th with a cover by Green for the price of $14.99 under Diamond order code SEP151131 and ISBN 978-1-60886-764-6.
