After receiving numerous Eisner Award nominations for their monthly Adventure Time comics based on the Cartoon Network animated series, Boom! Studios releases its first originalgraphic novel based on the series later this month: Adventure Time: Playing with Fire, drawn by Zack Sterling with a story by Danielle Corsetto, creator of the wonderful Girls with Slingshots webcomic.
Adventure Time: Playing with Fire will be released later this month. But to hold you over until then, Wired has an exclusive look at what to expect in this gallery right here.
Omar Hammami, the most prominent American jihadi left alive, probably should be running. When Hammami came to Somalia for jihad in 2006, he never anticipated that al-Qaida’s local affiliate would pledge to kill its former propaganda asset. And last month, the U.S. government put a $5 million bounty on the head of the 28-year-old Alabama native. These could be the last moments of Hammami’s life.
But Hammami tells Danger Room in an extremely rare and exclusive interview that he’s staying put.
The action in upcoming comic book The Inventor is fueled by the fascinating life and amazing inventions of Nikola Tesla, the 19th-century physicist and electrical engineer who helped create our 21st-century future before dying penniless.
“Tesla’s true story is more surreal than any fictional account I’ve seen of him,” said writer Rave Mehta, whose Tesla biocomic, previewed in the gallery above, debuts at publisher Arcana’s booth this week at Comic-Con International. “The Inventor: The Story of Tesla is based on Tesla’s journey, from his epic birth in a lightning storm to his arrival in America, where his greatest mentor, Thomas Edison, turns into his greatest adversary and starts the War of Currents.”

Oh, and happy birthday, Mr. Tesla!
