 Goodreads Synopsis: 
Newbury Comics exclusive variant cover by Corey Booth of Over the Garden Wall #1 by Jim Campbell, Amalia Levari, Jim Campbell, and Cara McGee! Over the Garden Wall is now an ongoing series! In this kickoff issue, Wirt and Greg might have escaped the Beast's grasp and made it out of the Unknown, but some things can't be forgotten. Greg returns to Dreamland at night, where the silly creatures who live there help him on his adventures. Then, dive back into the early days in the Unknown where young Anna, the daughter of the Woodsman, must learn to survive in the woods on her own
This comic wasn't really what I expected but it wasn't bad either. I didn't realize that this series was a Cartoon Network thing nor that this was a variant that wasn't a full comic, I just thought the cover and first few pages were cute - I should have kept flipping. This issue has a short with Greg and Wirt, then a girl in the woods and then some Adventure time. All which were interesting reads but there was no backstory anywhere and that is what I had hoped to get (my bad). 

The colors were really bright and vibrant and the stories were cute so I enjoyed flipping through it. If you are looking for the series start though, this edition wasn't it.
