“Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Vol. 2)” Review
Looking for a truly mathematical book full of beautiful artwork and behind-the-scenes snippets? Then oh my glob, Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Vol. 2) is here and waiting to be perused by you! This book covers seasons three and four, making for a visually stunning read, especially when accompanied by artist commentary on how each title card came to be.
Each page of the book displays a title card from a corresponding episode, along with the artist’s process of how they chose what to depict. Fun fact: The above title card was inspired by Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland! (Naturally, this is one of many things you can learn by purchasing the book!)
Naturally, the book features the title card for the gender-swapped episode of Adventure Time. “Fionna and Cake” started off as sketches from an artist and then spawned into multiple alternate universe episodes!
This title card was actually the work of a young fan. Pendleton Ward enjoyed the drawing so much, not only was the title card used for an episode, but it also transpired in the creation of Me-Mow as a character!
The title cards each went through a drafting phase. Usually, not much would change between the drafting and the final processes except for fine-tuning. In the case of this title card, many things were added that were not in the initial draft. Care to take a guess?
In the early sketch of this title card, Lumpy Space Princess actually had legs! How lumpin’ crazy is that?
To see more of the title cards and find out more interesting trivia behind the show, be sure to purchase this book! Coming from a fan, this book is a must-have. Vol. 2 is beautifully designed and bound, with eye-catching pages and fascinating facts. It’s available now in stores and online. So what are you waiting for? The fun will never end!
