Adventure Time Comic introduction

After scanning through the first issue the Chinese should be suited to an intermediate student with minimal dictionary look-ups. Higher level beginners might also be okay. As this is a Taiwanese release naturally the comics are Traditional Chinese, but if you’re around intermediate level you should be comfortable dealing with certain differences between Simplified and Traditional.

The Mandarin-dub DVDs of the series have yet to be released. Cartoon Network Taiwan seems to be leveraging the series for new subscribers to their cable channel as long as they can before releasing the DVDs.

    Nice! I have been looking for some good cartoons in Chinese! Aside from 熊出没 here in mainland China, there isn’t much interesting original programming. Do you know of any other links to watch American shows with Chinese audio? Or better yet, do you know of a good torrenting site for downloading Chinese films and shows?
