Comic Con 2011: Adventure Time & Regular Show

Adventuretime2.pngHere's Everett's observations on the 2011 NY Comic Con:
 
One of my absolute favorite highlights from this year's New York Comic Con was attending the Cartoon Network panel featuring the creators behind Adventure Time and The Regular Show. Both shows represent a new breed of cartoon; one which combines an extreme, nearly lysergic amount of imagination while exploiting hip, popular culture references at every turn. In little over a year from their first being aired, they have developed rabid followings amongst the young and old. This was well represented by the crowd of hundreds of diehard fans (many in full costume) who waited over an hour for the panel to begin.
