Stuff I Read - Adventure Time Vol 2 Review
So after the events of the last volume, this new adventure takes Finn and Jake on a quest through time itself. Yes, time travel, the old trope of science fiction shows, which is what Adventure Time really is. Not set in a fantasy world really but in a distant future where humanity is on the verge of extinction, it's almost surprising that time travel hasn't featured into the television . But it arrives here in full force as PB builds a time machine and Finn and especially Jake muck things up.
Of course, there's also murderous Finn and Jake robots that BMO made and a future where the Candy Kingdom is conquered by machines and even a stop by the pilot episode of the show to steal Finn's sleeping bag. It's an interesting blend of homages and references to the show while also branching out on its own and starting to really create some new content. After the first volume which was a lot more about showing the toys in the sandbox, this second volume starts to come up with entirely original content.
It's nice to see the series start to really get moving, too, because it means that more weird and creepy things can happen. Adventure Time has always been something that was fun for everyone, including adults. The weirdness can act on multiple levels, and the comic captures that nicely, blending the juvenile humor in with the more mature aspects nicely. The art and visuals are all fun, and it all works together to create an effective whole.
The one thing that I had some problems with was the ending, the resolution to the whole time travel problem. Because for all the volume built up the threat of the Finn and Jake Robots, it seemed almost a cheat to have them defeated off panel. It wasn't' terribly done, but it lacked some satisfaction that I wanted. Of course, it could be that it's just setting up a future (haha, get it?) conflict because it's entirely possible that the Finn and Jake robots (or at least the Jake one) will be back later, but it was still a let down. The story finds a way to address that very thing, but it doesn't really solve it by drawing attention to it.
Still, the series continues to grow and evolve. I think it's doing a good job of charting its own territory and using the medium to tell stories that television wouldn't be a good fit for. It all works, and I think that's a very good thing, because fans of the show deserve good things, especially when the show doesn't come out very regularly for those not watching it when it airs (for shame on only have three complete seasons out when the show is putting out its sixth season...SHAME!). But yes, I am really liking this series, and so this second volume gets an 8.5/10.

Read information about the authorHi, I'm Ryan! I was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in 1980 and since then have written several books. You can read my Wikipedia page for more, or check out my author site at RyanNorth.ca!
I'm the author of the webcomic Dinosaur Comics (that's the comic where the pictures don't change but the words do, it's better than it sounds and I've also done crazy things like turn Shakespeare into a choose-your-own-path adventure, write a comic for Marvel about a girl with all the powers of a squirrel, or mess up walking my dog so badly it made the news.
I'm working on more stuff as we speak, hopefully it's good
