Fans of the Rick and Morty show have been stuck in a weird limbo since the end of the long anticipated season 3 of the Adult Swim show. Limbo because the show hasn't been renewed for a new season, yet the show itself has not been canceled. Rick and Morty followers have already had some experience for waiting on new seasons … like … a year and half for season 3 as an example. All though there maybe mixed views on the subject, season 3 certainly raised the bar on what the show could do, and fans are eager to see what Rick and Morty will do next. Needless to say, anticipations are high, but fear not fans, because things are about to get knocked into the twelfth gear as IDW gets Schwifty with Oni Press on this four-issue adventure! Well, more so it’s Dungeons and Dragons with Rick and Morty, but an adventure! So prepare to Michael Down your Vincent’s this August, because t-that’s when this all goes down.
(Blurp) A Rick and Morty four-issue comic book adv- (Blurp) -enture. Yaaa (Blurp) aay.
Here’s the rundown from IDW …
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 8th, 2018)
Announced today at C2E2, IDW, in partnership with Oni Press, is bringing two of the most popular properties in the world, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty™ and Dungeons & Dragons, together in a brand-new four-issue comic book series. Taking the reins of these two iconic properties is the superstar creative team of writers Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward) along with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).Debuting this August, the mini-series will throw Rick and Morty into a high-fantasy adventure blended with the wit, humor, and intelligence the show is widely celebrated for.“I love Rick and Morty™ with a powerful love, and I’ve played D&D since the 5th grade,” said Patrick Rothfuss. “So when they approached me about writing a story with both of them together? That’s some serious you-got-chocolate-in-my-peanut butter $#!& right there. I’m in. I’m all the way in. I’m gettin’ that chocolate all up in the peanut butter. Like, deep in. All the way in. It’s going to be sticky and delicious.”
In this summer’s biggest comic book crossover, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.
“The Dungeons & Dragons crew is letting Pat and I open a Pandora’s Box of insane adventure material and iconic creatures from the granddaddy of all tabletop role-playing games,” said Jim Zub. “I wish I could say we’ll take good care of it, but, the simple truth is, this is Rick and Morty™ we’re talking about. No fantasy world or otherworldly plane of existence is safe.”
Each issue will feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets, and more! Dungeons & Dragons comics from IDW by Jim Zub are available now wherever books are sold. Oni Press’s Rick and Morty™comics are also available where comics and books are sold.
