It's great seeing Princess Bubblegum and her vampire bud Marceline in Boom! Studios' monthly Adventure Time title, but it's been twice as nice to read along with the heroines as they pursue a rock and roll fantasy all their own in the six-issue Marcline and the Scream Queens miniseries. The good times roll on August 8 in Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens #2 by Meredith Gran (Octopus Pie), with covers by regular Adventure Time series artist Shelli Paroline, Erica Henderson, Jen Wang and a Sleater-Kinney album inspired cover by JAB. Making the issue extra special is its backup story entitled "Grumpy Butt" by none other than Faith Erin Hicks (Friends With Boys) that sees the book's stars explore a monochrome region of the Land of Ooo that will have the red-craving Marceline feeling blue. Boom! has provided CA with a first-look at "Grumpy Butt" from Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens #2, which you can preview after the cut.
