Wednesdays are, as some of you know, New Comics Day. Well, we have a comic that won't be available at the stores as it is a Mondo exclusive! We worked with BOOM! on a variant cover for ADVENTURE TIME #17 to celebrate our ADVENTURE TIME / REGULAR SHOW Gallery opening last Friday. We 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 T-me–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."
