An 'Adventure Time' Encyclopedia Is In The Works!


By Kendra Beltran

"Adventure Time" throws a lot at you in terms of characters, history and plot. So instead of heading to Google every time something pops up that you can’t quite remember, or if you’re just one of those people who NEED everything to do with your favorite show, do we have some good news for you. You’ll have the chance to own your own "Adventure Time" encyclopedia called "The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia (Encyclopedia): Inhabitants, Lore, Spells, and Ancient Crypt Warnings of the Land of Ooo Circa 19.56 B.G.E. - 501 A.G.E." this August, thanks to Abrams Books.


Can you imagine what the 160 pages will include? Along with all the must-know info about the show, characters’ comments will be in the margins. So you’ll get to read what’s in the minds of Finn, Jake, Bubblegum Princess, and more, on top of a whole lot of new art, lore and advice.

But wait…there’s more! Lord of Evil Hunson Abadeer. The voice behind the character, Martin Olson, will actually be acting as editor, but it’s more fun to say Lord of Evil Hunson Abadeer is editing the Encyclopedia.

Here's the official synopsis:

Although seemingly a guidebook to the Land of Ooo and its post-apocalyptic inhabitants, it is in fact an amusing nightmare of literary pitfalls, bombastic brain-boggles and ancient texts designed to drive the reader mad.

Complete with secret lore and wizard spells, fun places you should visit and places where you will probably die, whom to marry and whom not to marry, how to make friends and how to destroy your enemies--this volume includes hand-written marginalia by Finn, Jake, and Marceline.

Arguably the greatest encyclopedia ever written since the beginning of the cosmos, it is also an indispensable companion to humans and demons who know what time it is. Adventure Time!

It hasn’t been specified if the Encyclopedia will include reference to Boom Studios’ "Adventure Time" comic series, but we hope that more info will leak before August.
