A few years ago, Marvel compiled a series of stories by alternative comic artists called "Strange Tales" (first volume is well worth a read) and these "Sugary Shorts" keep within this spirit. Sugary shorts follows the inhabitants of Ooo in short snippets and occasionally weird misadventures as they go about their day-to-day lives.
I love the art. I'll get that out of the way. The artists featured in this volume are excellent choices and the "storylines" fit perfectly with the AT mythos. You could picture these stories lifted from the page and expanded upon on screen. I will go far out and say I enjoyed reading these stories than the main series (strong as that is). I would've loved to have seen more unseen content and probably more obscure characters featured. Its not as cerebral as Marvels strange tales, but it is more consistent. I recommend this to AT fans (of course) I dont think this might be the ideal platform for those who have only been introduced though.

Nice collection of short stories. There's some amazing shorts with beautiful art and surreal plots but the majority of the stories are so short they don't have any impact on the reader. How much you enjoy this book is directly related to how much you enjoy the tv animation, it is a book that I recomend to fans of adventure time only. The Mathematical edition is very high quality and in terms of presentation is amazing (The cover on amazon doesn't correspond 100% to the book). Another let down is that on the back of the book it says: "Comic creators from around the world unite to celebrate all things ADVENTURE TIME in this collection of incredibly original mini-adventures." So I was expecting something very eclectic with great variety of artwork but in the end all of the creators are just from the US.. United States of the World I guess..

This Graphic novel is beautifully made, the cover is lovely and the artwork within is pretty awesome ('mathematical'!) We will definitely be getting the other books in this series.

If you have an Adventure Time fan in the family, they will love this.
