You don’t pickup a Rick and Morty comic book if you are not prepared for crazy and insane adventures. This holds true with Rick and Morty vs. Cthulhu #1 at Oni Press.
Written by Jim Zub (Unbreakable Red Sonja, Thunderbolts), illustrated by Troy Little (Rick & Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons), with colors by Leonardo Ito, and letters from Crank!, Rick and Morty vs. Cthulhu #1 hits local comic shops on December 7, 2022.
What could be worse than an off-planet sugar deal gone wrong? Tripping through a Lovecraftian hellscape with the Smith family as they fight, uh, cosmic sentient color and racist fish-people? That can’t be right…
Welcome to the Rick Sanchez School of Actually Getting S**t Done! And that poor bastard Jerry declares “everything smells like cinnamon and sorrow’” in this Lovecraftian epic.
A story by Zub that holds the candle to the Rick and Morty lore that Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon created for their smash-hit tv series on Adult Swim, coupled with noteworthy illustrations from Little gives fans exactly what they want.
The duo of Rick and Morty is a dark and extreme version of Doc Brown and Marty McFly from Back to the Future. The series is off-the-wall and truly stands in a class of its own.
Sometimes comics based on other properties are either straight adaptations or very thinly written and illustrated as a way to make more money on a popular media property. However, Zub and Little have been able to make a story worth reading and the artwork doesn’t skip a beat.
If you are a fan of Rick and Morty, grabbing this issue on December 7 and join the adventure as the crazy duo explore a Lovecraftian hellscape on another wild adventure.
