In this issue, the titular band is touring Marceline’s hometown, the Nightosphere (which bears more than a passing resemblance to heck), while Marceline is going through a confidence crisis. Unfortunately, this is causing her to be mean to her friend Princess Bubblegum, who is also the band's manager. What impressed me was that this comic is able to make the relationship as appealing as the humor.
The secret to the relationships in this comic is that no matter who the characters are, they are treated like real people. This is especially important when dealing with a vampire rock star and her royal candy friend. If there is only one lesson to be learned from this book, it would be that even rock stars can be embarrassed by their dads.
Overall, I really enjoyed this comic. It is a great example of what an all-ages comic should be. It is appropriate for all ages, but it is also entertaining for all ages. This still won’t get you your gritty Batman fix, but for anyone looking for something fun and accessible, this series is a great way to go.
