IslandsUnknown - 2016
Ties into the huge Adventure Time: Islands television event, the mini-series airing on Cartoon Network this winter where Finn meets other humans and an important member of his family for the first time. Written by Islands show writer Ashly Burch, this story serves as a prequel to the television event. In the wake of the mushroom war and the vampire infestation, the remaining humans of Ooo have set sail for safer shores. Bunny Girl (aka Jo), who was Marceline's precocious young friend from the "Stakes" mini-series, is fearful of what dangers await them. Two Bread Tom, her caretaker in Marcy's absence, does his best to assuage her concerns. But after an attack from a swarm of monstrous sea creatures almost sinks the ship, Jo and the rest of the humans start to fear that it may not be safe anywhere. Luckily, they soon reach a plentiful island populated by another gregarious group of humans and attempt to build a new colony. The humans from Ooo are delighted and finally allow themselves to relax, all except for Jo, whose paranoia is as potent as ever. Her fears are confirmed when a swarm of enormous falcons descend on the settlement and snatch Jo up for dinner. Separated from her tribe, she must brave the dangers of the wild to get back to Two Bread Tom and the rest of the humans, and maybe learn a sense of selfƯ-reliance along the way.
