The curious habit of collecting digital trading cards continues to grow, with major companies like Topps and Upper Deck holding center court. There's plenty of room in the space for smaller companies to pick up the slack though, and as users of Quidd can attest, that app has being doing a more than serviceable job hitting more niche properties. Already hosting card and "sticker" sets based on Bob's Burgers, Valiant comics, Star Trek and more, Quidd is now teaming up with Cryptozoic to bring some Cartoon Network favorites to fans eager for more Steven Universe, Rick and Morty and Adventure Time collectibles.

Last year, McFarlane Toys reworked its strategy a bit. Instead of focusing on a few longrunning lines, the company switched to a primary series that encompassed all its licensed properties. Dubbed Color Tops, each wave mixes up comic, gaming, television and film characters into a larger collection. While the big guns like The Walking Dead still make up the primary focus, now things like Mass Effect, Attack on Titan, and even Spawn all fall under one banner. Add in building sets, and you have quite a bit of promising content coming from McFarlane in 2017.
The third season of Adult Swim favorite Rick and Morty got a slight update this week with co-creator Dan Harmon’s insight into the delay, citing “fights” with himself and partner Justin Roiland. As you can imagine, “fights” can be a loaded term, for which Harmon speaks out again to clarify “the truth is not dramatic.”
Fans of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty have been admittedly patient with Season 3; last projected to air in 2016, after Season 2 finished the prior October. There’s good news and bad on that front, as while the new season remains deep in production, co-creator Dan Harmon stepped up to blame himself for the delay.
I know we've all been waiting very patiently, but the day is finally upon us. Comics based on James Cameron's Avatar are finally coming next year on Free Comic Book Day! The comic book adaptation of the smash-hit blockbuster that everyone loves and remembers is just one of twelve Gold Titles as part of FCBD's 2017 celebration, which also includes Rick & Morty, Doctor Who and X-O Manowar.
Announced today, Free Comic Book Day 2017 will be celebrated across the world on May 6th, and as usual the big name publishers, including Image, IDW, Boom, Oni and Titan, all have offerings as part of next year's crop of Gold Sponsor titles.
Rick and Morty has yet to set an official return date for Season 3, likely eyed somewhere toward late 2016, but never you fear for lack of new material. A new video from Comic-Con 2016 has emerged, featuring creator Justin Roiland acting out one of the most insane pre-trial transcripts in recorded history, complete with animation.
Fan favorite Mr. Poopybutthole, of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s popular Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty, is getting his own comics miniseries starting in July. Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar takes the scatologically named little guy on an epic adventure alongside Morty's older sister Summer Smith.
The Oni comic is written and drawn by Sarah Graley, of Our Super Adventure, and colored by Mildred Louis. The series features a number of variant covers, which we're unveiling here today. Each cover varies pretty wildly in style, which is fun to see. It's particularly interesting to how the more conventionally human Summer closely reflects each different artist's aesthetic, while the quintessentially cartoony Mr. Poopybutthole remains his odd-looking self.
Dan Harmon's hit animated show Rick and Morty is a property tailor-made for comics, packed full of mad science, alternate worlds and family drama. The ongoing series from Oni Press has been a huge hit with fans of the show, and later this year one of independent comics
In an exclusive interview with LA Times, Oni Press announced that Sexcastle writer Kyle Starks will be taking over the ongoing series beginning in July. Drawn by the regular team of CJ Cannon and Ryan Hill with back-ups by Marc Ellerby, Starks' joins the book for five issues beginning with Rick and Morty #16.
The wait for the nebulous arrival of Rick and Morty's third season just got a little bit easier to manage. While Oni Press' Rick and Morty comic has taken a bit of the sting out of the not knowing, we still only get that once a month. But what if I told you there was a way you'd be able to get schwifty with Rick and Morty on the regular? Starting next week, that will be possible with the arrival of Pocket Mortys, a new mobile game that mashes Rick and Morty with Pokemon.
Okay, so technically you can already play a Rick and Morty video game over on the Adult Swim website, but you can't take it with you. You just can't. Pocket Mortys is hitting up both iOS and Android, meaning you'll never be without Rick's slovenly belches or Morty's ability to cancel out Rick's brainwaves to keep him safe. Plus, you get the added benefit of it being a riff on one of the most addictive and long-running role-playing game series', Pokemon.
