This is a gender-bent version of Adventure Time and I freaking loved it! We have Fionna, Cake, Marshall Lee, Lumpy Space Prince and Prince Gumball. Fionna and Cake are the protectors of Ooo and everything is the same but not quite.I honestly enjoyed this gender-bent version a lot more than I did the original. Though I do think that the amazing writing played a part in my enjoyment.
In this volume, Fionna and Cake are tasked with returning a flame elemental back to his original form after the Ice Queen put a heated salt crystal in his chest. They spend these awesome 6 issues working on saving him before he evaporates completely.
Of course there were other side stories in between as well and short comic strips at the end of each issue. I think Cake really has a knack for story telling. They might not have happy ending but it really gets a person interested.
I’m glad I decided to pick this comic up because now I know that I love Adventure Time in every shape and form. Major kudos to the awesome writing and beautiful artwork. I’m tempted to go in search for other works by Natasha Allegri after finishing one.
