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.
Rick and Morty
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.
Our judges have adjudicated; our readers have voted. We’re proud to present to you the best comedy comic of 2015 — and four great runners up.
The Adult Swim animated series Rick And Morty is about as well-suited for a comics adaptation as anything on TV. It's got a psychopathic mad scientist, inter-dimensional adventures, and lots of teenage growing pains.
That's likely why the Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon-created series will be coming to Oni Press next year in a new comic written by Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers scribe Zac Gorman.
