Come on, and grab your friends, and go check out the algebraic goodness of Adventure Time: The Enchiridion & Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook!!!, a treasure trove of illustrations and stories from the Land of Ooo. For fans of the emotionally-intelligent, genre-busting, grownup-friendly animated show Adventure Time, the book, coming hot from Abrams on October 6, offers some of the sweet, sweet backstory that makes the show so rich.

Inside, find both the Enchiridion's ancient tales of bold adventurers past and Marceline the Vampire Queen's (voiced by Olivia Olson) personal account of her own thousand-or-so years of exploration. Polymaths Olivia Olson and her father, Martin Olson (voice of Marcy's father and the Lord of Evil, Hunson Abadeer), "translated" these stories "from the scrolls of Ooo," just in time for a tell-all panel at New York Comic-Con 2015 that will detail Marceline's mysterious past. Illustrators Tony Millionaire, Renee French, Mahendra Singh, Celeste Moreno, Aisleen Romano, and Dan Povenmire re-envisioned creator Pendleton Ward's world in their own distinctive styles, which you can check out an exclusive peek at their work below.
