Rick and Morty VS D&D II #1 Reviews!

Bubble Blabber: 8/10 “an excellent start to what should be another brilliant series…The adventures are only going to get bigger and badder from here.”

But Why Tho?: 10/10 “It captures every ounce of essence from the show. It pays homage in an honest way to the Dnd routes, without sacrificing on the comedic nature of Rick And Morty.”

Caped-Joel: 8.5/10 “Zub really expands on the concept in interesting ways while also taking time to make a lot of clever and funny observations about just how popular Dungeons & Dragons has gotten over the past couple years as a cultural phenomenon.”

Convention Collective: “The art in this book is so darn fun. All the small details in D&D weapons and worlds are lovingly placed and a joy to look at. The environments are so carefully crafted and make it easy to see the panels come to life as you read.”

Do You Even Comic Book?: 9/10 “This book is precisely what it promises to be and has a fun time with the lore of both series that fans of both series can enjoy.”

Fanboy Factor: “It’s a maelstrom of mayhem, foul-mouthed mouthing-off, consumer satirism and just plain Painscape!”

Hero Press: “perfectly captures both the voice of the Rick and Morty show and the essence of freewheeling Dungeons & Dragons fun in this hilarious new chapter in the lives of our crass protagonists.”

Kabooooom: 10/10 “Jim Zub does a fantastic job of depicting gamer humor through the lens of Rick & Morty, with Rick insulting nerds by calling them bard-lovers. Troy Little’s art captures the look of the show well enough, while bringing in some suitably nightmarish creatures straight from the Monster Manual”

Pullbox: 10/10 “This is a perfect team for seemingly perfect project!…A must have for any D&D or Adult Swim fan!”

Villain Media: “Fueled by absurdities and hilarious visual gags, Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons: Chapter II: Painscape #1 lands its wisecracks with ease.”
