After three years and 35 issues, Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb are leaving KaBOOM!'s hit series Adventure Time. Starting with issue #36, the new creative team will be Chris Hastings (The Adventures of Dr. McNinja) and Zachary Sterling (Adventure Time: Seeing Red).
"Ryan, Shelli, and Braden were so instrumental in making the Adventure Time comic series what it is," said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. "It's bittersweet to see them leave the series, but they're walking off into the sunset with a standing ovation from all of us. What they've accomplished with this series is truly amazing. Of course, this isn't anywhere close to a final goodbye; we're cooking up some exciting plans for the future. And get ready for Chris and Zachary—they're going to take us on a whole new set of adventures with some Ooo-tastic surprises of their own!"
Adventure Time #35 is in stores December 24th with main covers by Shanti Rittgers and Mychal Amann, a retailer incentive cover by Jimmy Giegerich, and a Final Order Cutoff unlocked cover by outgoing artists Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb.
Adventure Time #36 arrives in comic shops on January 28th with main covers by Justin Hillgrove and Ale Giorgini, and a retailer incentive cover by Rebekka Dunlap.
