No, it's a published comic, but I think you can read it online somewhere. Use your google skills.

After reading the comments and studying this comic may more times, I finally understood all the little jokes and subtext you put. That mix of genuine cleverness, creativity, and humor is probably the best I have seen of its kind. If only I was smart enough to notice it in the first place.
Great comics! :D

You're welcome. Ah! You cheated and looked at the comments lol :D
Still, thank you for taking the time to examine the work a little closer. :) Only a few people did that and I appreciate those who do :)

Yes. My brain could not process all the subtext you put in until I read the comments. :XD: Even though I was already curious.
It was my pleasure! I like figuring out "obviously hidden" information!

I literally had to double take on the "PB and Marceline come out" line.

What you did there. I think I see it.

If ever there was a subtle punch in the head, this would be it. Expert mode: Achieved. I'm pretty sure this one strip is written better than most shows on TV today.

I'm a little sad when people pass this by without noticing the subtlety.
So I'm always terrifically ecstatic when people notice the sneakiness I planted here, like... er... an eccentric uncle watching his favorite nephew discover the treasure he left for him after planting several clues :)
Congrats on finding it :D Here's a cookie!
:iconmegacookieplz:

There are 2 more hidden tricks I left in the comic, and if you'd like to find out, I already left the answers somewhere in the comments :)

Well, those are considered one thing (and a little obvious). And the other one is hidden in the dialogue again :)

Google is your friend dude! Meredith Gran is an indie comic artist with her work on Octopus Pie. She was recently tapped to be writer/ artist for the Adventure Time comics spin-off. :)

Meta-jokes are a little more subtle and less straight-on funny than the other ones I made. Still, I can't wait for the first issue to come out. :)

Nice! You got another one :) There are two more hidden jokes there if you'd care to explore more :)

Also, you have earned my salute for taking the time to examine the comic. Nobody else caught those subtle details! :D

I know the scritch-scratch one is an innuendo... but I'm not going to think about that...
I'm going to take a shot in the dark.

Actually, I never intended "scritch-scratch" to mean anything lol :D
Here are clues:
1) Line-spacing
2) Color symbolism

If you mean by 2) the rainbow spew then that one was too obvious for me to mention. xD
Wait... I think I just got the last one...
the adventures of "PB and marceline" come out...
the adventures of "PB and Marceline come out"...of the closet?

The rainbow is a symbol of the LGBT movement if my research serves me right :)
And the sixth panel dialgoue took me several rewrites to get the grammar correct! :D

:P META-JOKES YAY
Two reasons why I can't wait:
1) MARCELINE IS AWESOME!
2) Let's see if we can get any finality to this controversy shall we?
(On the negative side there won't be those awesome voice actors...)

Shame that if I ever get to read them, it'll be illegally on the internet since there isn't a very big comic book industry in the United Kingdome.
*headdesk*
Can I ask - has it actually be confirmed that anyone apart from Marceline and her direct family will appear in the miniseries?

:iconthisfreemind:

Princess Bubblegum will definitely be in the series.

I hope you get a chance to get your hands on the actual comics!

:D Marceline, PB and Beemo!
(IDK if Beemo is a permanent member or a one-shot member...)
I'll look at the reviews of the comics after they come out and if they're positive I'll consider shipping some over here. That is, if by that stage I actually get a form of pocket money.

I don't think so, the Adventure Time comics and the spinoff don't seem to be connected to the main series (especially with what happened in Adventure Time #4), but it remains equally valid nonetheless. Regarding Marcy and her family, a small detail was shown on "Daddy's Little Monster" by way of a portrait, but a real history is yet to be revealed (Like why her dad is a Demon while Marcy is a vampire).

It seems up in the air if the comics are canon or not. I'm pretty sure that Pen and Adam Muto have said that the comics are there own thing, but I just saw this posted on reddit the other day but the author of the comics: [link]

So...mixed messages?

illeity Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012   Digital Artist
Ahh, I get it! :) DC comics has a concept for that called Hypertime: ([link])

In short, it means that "It's All True!" Some parts may contradict the other, but it's not any less true or correct.

What's undeniably true however, is that Ryan North currently has the second best job in the world. Best job is being part of the creative team of Adventure Time itself :D

I plugged in a lot of subtle details in this comic to reflect how the mini-series will probably be when it comes out. Can't wait :)

We can only hope it'll be a yuri~ :iconhurrplz: If not, hopefully there will at least be some indication that they were, yes, in a romantic relationship prior to the start of the series.

We can expect the subtlety to be present of course. :) Or we can always wear yuri goggles to make it work :D
