PORTLAND, OR., Sept. 21, 2018—Oni Press is gettin’ schwifty over a brand-new Rick and Morty treasury edition to be released on Local Comic Shop Day, November 17, 2018.
Rick and Morty is the critically-acclaimed, half-hour animated hit comedy series on Adult Swim that follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick Sanchez is living with his daughter Beth’s family and constantly bringing her, his son-in-law Jerry, grand-daughter Summer, and grand-son Morty into intergalactic escapades. Can the family survive Rick’s insanity and all the chaos the universe throws at them?
Rick and Morty stars Justin Roiland (Adventure Time), Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live) and Spencer Grammer (Greek). The series is created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Roiland who also serve as executive producers.
This special double-size treasury edition for Local Comic Shop Day includes issues #35 and #40, two hilarious standalone issues written by Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Kill Them All) and illustrated by series artists Marc Ellerby and Sarah Stern. Come for the jokes, stay for the soul-crushing ennui. Wubba lubba dub dub
