- Author's Saving Throw:
- Those who felt Finn suffered a Badass Decay in the later seasons of the show in terms of combat felt relief when the comic turned him into a competent fighter once again.
- The second arc being focused on the Founder's Island denizens immigrating to Ooo and its effect on Finn was this to those disappointed in the first arc for not focusing on the aftermath of the finale. See It's the Same, Now It Sucks! below.
- While it's not 100 percent explicitly told, the final issue implies that Finn and Huntress Wizard are still a thing, relieving those who felt disappointed by the lack of interaction between the two in the finale.
- The comic may be Cut Short due to the cancellation, but many fans are considering the second arc a better closure to Finn than the finale.
- Heartwarming Moments: The first thing Simon does is give Marceline the spoon from "Simon and Marcy".
- It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: While the comic is getting praise from the fans, some are criticizing the first arc for being another Alternate Timeline plot, which was the most recurrent plot in the original comic book series, instead of following the events of the finale and showing what the Land of Ooo is up to after the battle against GOLB.
- Tear Jerker: Finn telling Minerva about Fern in issue 5 and expressing remorse over his death.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: As cited above, the Alternate Timeline plot. It doesn't help that the plot takes a third of the chapters in this 12 issue comic series, which could be used to develop the characters and the left hanging plot points that the series left after it ended. And since the comic was cancelled at the halfway point, the entire thing is now considered a wasted opportunity.
- Win the Crowd: After the first preview was published online, the comic starting receiving praise from the fans, especially how it preserves the spirit of the show, as well as their characters. Some who doubted the comic's existence are even interested on how BOOM! is going to continue the series after the finale.
