Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time has a huge, delightfully weird underbelly — and the most popular of those is undoubtedly the version of the show where all the characters’ genders have been flipped. And also Jake is a cat named Cake.

It’s a universe where Princess Bubblegum is Prince Gumball and Marceline the Vampire Queen is Marshall Lee the Vampire King, and that’s precisely whom Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular is all about.

Available on Jan. 18 on Comixology, the Marshall Lee Spectacular is a collaboration between the digital comics retailer, Cartoon Network Enterprises and Boom! Studios, the comic book home of Adventure Time. It’s one of three books launching with the Comixology Originals program, meaning that it will only be available through Comixology and Kindle — there’s no print edition planned, or, at least, not yet. Anyone with a Comixology Unlimited subscription will automatically gain access to the title as well.

And if you have neither, Comixology has offered Polygon an exclusive preview of three pages of S.M. Vidaurri and Asia Kendrick-Horton’s “Disqualified,” one of three new Marshall Lee stories in Adventure Time Marshall Lee Spectacular.
