Adventure Time is a comic book series by Boom Studios, written by Ryan North. It is based on (but not considered canonical to) the animated series.

Tropes used in Adventure Time (comics) include:

Finn: HOW! COME! WE! (table flip) KEEP NOT WINNING?!

  • Fusion Dance: The second issue implies that Dessert Princess is actually an amalgamation of various Candy citizens.
  • Grievous Bottley Harm: PB attempts this on the Lich with a broken flask.
  • Handshake Substitute: The fist bump, which the comic notes there can not be enough of in any story, whether fiction or nonfiction.
  • Hurl It Into the Sun: The Lich's plan with the entire planet with the help of a Bag of Holding. He ends up being cast into the sun himself.
  • Making a Splash: Water Princess.
  • No Time to Explain: Said by Finn when he and Jake appear out of nowhere in Issue 3, and then Princess Bubblegum says it's clear what's going on.
  • Ocular Gushers: How Water Princess uses her powers.
  • Opening Shout-Out: The first issue opens with Finn and Jake filming the show's opening. The second issue again imitates the opening to show the damage the Lich has done to Ooo.
  • Painting the Medium: The Lich speaks with white text on a black speech balloon. Marceline speaks with yellow all-caps text on a magenta speech balloon when she's a monster.
  • Signature Style: It's pretty obvious that Ryan North writes the comic. Perhaps...super obvious?
  • Strange Minds Think Alike:
    • After the earth is restored, Desert Princess goes missing, and Jake tries to figure out where she went by imitating a princess and saying, "I'm the new princess in town! I'm super nice and everybody likes me!" Cut to the kidnapped Desert Princess, who is bewildered as to why Ice King would kidnap her because she's super nice and everybody likes her.
  • Stylistic Suck: The Ice King's new fanfiction is about as terrible as the last one.
  • This Is a Drill: Finn and Jake's initial plan to escape the bag.
  • Unsound Effect: write write write write [dead link]
  • Unusual Euphemism: Staying true to the cartoon. "Asymptotic!"
  • Violence Really Is the Answer: Again, staying true to the show. "But there's gotta be SOMETHING we can punch to escape!"
  • What The Hell, Reader?: Marceline calls out the reader in the second issue for turning the page instead of staying to help her fight the Lich.
  • A Worldwide Punomenon:
    • There is a princess who lives in the magic bag named Desert Princess... who's made up of various desserts.
