Adventure Time #17 MONDO Variant Comic Cover To Go On Sale Wednesday, June 26, 2013

MONDO worked with BOOM! on a variant cover for Adventure Time #17 to celebrate their Adventure Time/Regular Show Gallery opening last Friday. MONDO decided to use a design from JJ Harrison and below, he talks about his influences and why he did what he did:

“I designed the “Adventure Time” cover to honor the single most important thing in my son’s life–Adventure TIme–and one of the movies that had a tremendous impact on my childhood–E.T.  Both center around a boy and his magical companion and the adventures they share together. It was a nice fit. For me, the original E.T. poster evokes a feeling of soaring adventure coupled with a sense of growing up and loss, and I wanted some of that in this piece, as well. I found a subtle way to include a very melancholy Ice King in the image. I feel like no other character from Adventure Time embodies those emotions more than he does.”

You can see photos of the comic HERE.

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This exclusive comic book will be available online at a random time on Wednesday, June 26th and it will not be available at comic shops.
