KaBOOM! Studios will take part in the Halloween festivities this year, making the ever-loveable world of Ooo a frighteningly surreal one for Finn, Jake, and the gang. Ooo is already a very, very strange place so I can’t image what the team has in story for the anthology-style “Spooktacular” one-shot.
