Adventure Time/Hero Initiative Event. Ha! Frison! Seeley! More.

June 2 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Adventure Time 100 Project Cover

Saturday, June 2nd, 2019 – What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME! Challengers is teaming up with The Hero Initiative to celebrate the release of the ADVENTURE TIME 100 PROJECT. Finn, Jake, and the entire Adventure Time crew take center stage in Hero Initiative’s famous “100 Project” format.

Using blank sketch cover variants from Adventure Time #36, the Hero Initiative sent out 100 copies to amazing artists around the world so that they could create one of a kind original covers. The results are collected here, with art from Jeffrey Brown, John Cassaday, Emi Lenox, Whilce Portacio, Bill Sienkiewicz, Walt Simonson and many more, and Challengers will have a ton of those original covers on display—AND they will be on sale!

Oh my glob! You can own original Adventure Time art! And all the money raised goes to the Hero Initiative, the only charity dedicated to helping comic book creators in medical or financial need.

Artists appearing include GENE HA, JENNY FRISON, TIM SEELEY and more to-be-announced contributors to the Adventure Time 100 Project. We’ll also have a stack of sketch covers created just for this event by JEFFREY BROWN. Oh! And there may very well be a special appearance by BMO, so throw on your best give-up-on-life-pants and come on by! Snacks and cheap beer will also be served, and we’ll have softcover and hardcover editions of the Adventure Time 100 Project available, too. You should come, because you’re beautiful on the inside, like your brain and stuff, and let’s always be stupid, forever!
