You know who else reads comics? MY MOM!

It's true, actually, though probably not REGULAR SHOW. I would imagine it might fall into the 'too weird' category. Fans of the show will undoubtedly recognise the long-standing joke, repeatedly exhorted by Muscle Man to the increasing irritation of all the other crazy characters: Rigby, Mordecai, Benson, Skips, Pops and High Five Ghost, who are a bizarre mixture of animals, humans and even someone with a gumball machine for a head, who all live and work in a park. Where very, very strange things happen. A lot.

Obviously, I love comics. I have to say, though, I don't fully understand the need to produce comic versions of cartoons, the blatantly apparent fiscal and cross-platform marketing benefits aside. To me, when comics and indeed prose books are converted to films or television shows, often much is left out and the adaptations are a pale imitation. I tend to find with cartoons being converted to comics that the same is equally true. For something as zany and insane as REGULAR SHOW, ADVENTURE TIME et al, to me their natural medium is on screen. I just find I am not as entertained by the comic versions of them to anywhere near the same extent as the shows.

Personal, curmudgeonly observations aside, if you are a fan of the coolest racoon* ever - and I don't mean ROCKET RACOON, though that would be a pretty interesting rodent-related cross-over, now I come to think about it - and his friends, you probably will enjoy it regardless.

* Obviously I am heavily biased given my surname.
