"Adventure Time: Graybles Schmaybles" OGN cover

BOOM! Studios has announced exclusively to Comic Book Resources the upcoming release of an all-new "Adventure Time" original graphic novel. The OGN, titled "Graybles Schmaybles," will be published by BOOM! Studios imprint KaBOOM! and hit stores in April. The madcap new adventure comes from writer Danielle Corsetto ("Adventure Time: Pixel Princesses," "Girls with Slingshots") and will feature "Steven Universe's" Bridget Underwood on art.

The 160-page graphic novel will be presented in full color and feature a number of short stories focused around a common theme, or "Grayble." The OGN will follow Finn and Jake on a series of dangerous adventures after they take in a seemingly helpless cube that they find alone in the woods. The tiny cube proves to be a lot more than that, though, thus sending the duo on a wild ride befitting of the "Adventure Time" universe.

"Graybles Schmaybles" is the fifth "Adventure Time" OGN, following previous entries like "Playing With Fire" and "Bitter Sweets." "Adventure Time" made the transition from the small screen to the printed page in early 2012. The ongoing "Adventure Time" series won the Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids (ages 8–12) in 2013 and has spawned a number of spinoff series. You can find out more about "Graybles Schmaybles" below.

What’s to Love: Our Adventure Time original graphic novels read like an episode of the animated series. This new volume contains a series of shorts centered around a common theme—a Grayble in Adventure Time speak. Writer Danielle Corsetto (Adventure Time: Pixel Princesses, Girls with Slingshots) makes her return and we found the perfect artist in indie newcomer Bridget Underwood (Steven Universe) to complement her.

What It Is: Finn and Jake are about to go on their craziest series of adventures yet...and they don’t even have to leave their living room? After helping Party God with his technical issues, these two best pals discover a tiny cube all by its lonesome in the middle of the woods. Not ones to leave the helpless so...helpless, Finn and Jake take their new friend back to the treehouse and discover that some of the most harmless looking things can be the most dangerous.
