IDW has partnered with Oni Press to bring two wildly popular properties – Rick and Morty and Dungeons & Dragons – together in a brand-new, four-issue comic book series. The creative team will consist of writers Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Jim Zub (The Avengers) with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).
The miniseries will debut in August 2018 and will be throwing Rick and Morty in a high-fantasy adventure blended with the humor the show is known for. Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about D&D, and, naturally, things quickly go sideways. Each issue will also feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets and more.
“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 roleplaying 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.”
