Abrams to Publish The First Official Guide To Cartoon Network’s Top-Rated Animated Show, Adventure Time

Abrams will publish The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia ($19.95), the first-of-its-kind, definitive guide to the show’s beloved characters and world. The book was written by Martin Olson, the voice actor for the Lord of Evil on Adventure Time, who narrates the book in character. It also features original illustrations by Renee French, Tony Millionaire, Celeste Moreno, Aisleen Romano, and Mahendra Singh, and is being designed by Sean Tejaratchi. The show’s creator, Pendleton Ward, is contributing original content to the book as well.

Created in conjunction with Cartoon Network Enterprises, The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia includes everything anyone will ever need to know about the Land of Ooo and its inhabitants—secret lore and spells, fun places you should visit and places where you will probably die, what to eat and not to eat, whom to marry and whom not to marry, how to make friends and how to destroy your enemies—plus “marginalia” and doodles by Finn, Jake, and Marceline.

The 160 page hardcover will contain 150 color illustrations. The book will be released on August 6, 2013.

Superman Turns 75: The Man of Steel’s Legacy in Pictures

Exactly 75 years ago today, the first issue of “Action Comics” was released with a character on the cover who would change the literary world. Superman, the creation of teenagers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, was an immediate hit and became a worldwide sensation, kicking off the comic book industry which continues today.

From the comic books and Saturday morning cartoons to “Smallville” and Christopher Reeve’s 1978 film portrayal, the Man of Steel has long been an iconic part of pop culture history. Click HERE for a look at The Man of Steel’s 75 year legacy in pictures.

Action Comics #1: No, he couldn’t fly — hence the “leaping a tall building in a single bound” — but so much of Superman’s mythology was firmly in place in Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s very first Superman story: the baby sent from a dying planet to Earth, being raised as a human, an older Clark Kent falling for a woman named Lois Lane. The modern age of the superhero can be traced back to this 1938 issue.
