Flavorwire Exclusive: An Excerpt From ‘Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards Vol. 2′


In Adventure Time, one of the most visually stunning shows on television, the animation invites viewers in to a surreal, beautiful world that celebrates the wonders of adolescence without ignoring the darker, more complicated side of growing up. The show’s visuals add to its emotional complexity, beginning with each episode’s hand-painted title card, which references the upcoming story.

As a follow-up to last year’s collection, Titan Books will release Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Volume 2) which collects the complete set of title cards from Seasons 3 and 4, offering an inside look at early sketches, art development, and creator commentary. The book will be released on August 4 but Flavorwire has an exclusive preview.
