Trapped Between The Present And The Past In Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #4 First Look

by James Ferguson

Will Simon ever be free of the Ice King? We’ll find out in Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #4, coming in April from Boom! Studios. Written by Olivia Olson and illustrated by Slimm Fabert, the series, continuing the popular TV show, following the once immortal Simon and the still immortal Vampire Queen Marceline through their 900+ year friendship.

Just when Marcy thinks she’s making some progress restoring Simon’s memories, a new obstacle is thrown her way. Marcy’s dad, the Dark Lord of the Nightosphere messed up and switched Simon’s identity with his Ice King persona, trapping Simon between his present and his past. Marcy blames herself for this. Can she save Simon from dark magic’s influence and salvage their friendship? Jake, Finn, Bubblegum, and the gang will lend a hand.

Matthew Levine, Editor, Boom! Studios says:

Marcy is fierce, loyal, and willing to go to the ends of the universe to help her best friend Simon regain his memories, but it may be that there’s no easy solution when it comes to unpacking Simon’s history without destroying his identity. Every step forward seems like two steps back but it’s our struggles and how we pick ourselves up after a misstep that define us. Olivia and Slimm do an incredible job of breathing life into Marcy, Simon, and the rest of our favorite characters as they all forge forward on the all-important mission to save Simon and restore his friendship with Marcy.

Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #4 will feature a main cover by Brittney Williams and variant covers by Amelia Vidal and Ray Tonga. It’s set for release on April 17th, 2019.
