Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo
At long last, fans can get their first-ever compendium of the concept artwork and storyboards that go into creating Pendleton Ward’s Emmy Awardwinning comedy. The richly embellished book traces Ward’s early influences and work, then delves into the Cartoon Network vaults to reveal how the writers, ‘boarders, animators and voice actors bring to life the post-apocalyptic, magical and allaround inventive adventures of Finn and Jake.
Peppered with comments from the show’s key creative staff, this on-page journey into Ooo includes early character sketches, sumptuous background paintings and rare looks at the series’ bible. Already a best-seller on Amazon just days after its launch, these carefully collected 350-plus pages deserves a place of honor on any toon lover’s coffee table. Preferably, next to the earlier released The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Titan, $19.95).
