Rick and Morty VS Cthulhu #1 – Full Script

Rick and Morty VS Cthulhu #1 Reviews

The Brown Bag: “This opening instalment of a four-part mini-series should easily please fans of both Cartoon Network’s animated sitcom and the Lovecraft-inspired universe – the Cthulhu Mythos.”

Capes & Tights: “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.”

Comics Beat: “It’s hard to talk about someone so iconic and beloved, but also terrible. But they pulled it off — from the immensity of the cosmic world, to the fragility of our psychological nature, part one of Rick & Morty vs. Cthulhu will be a good read for fans and anyone who wants to jump in to the property for the first time!”

Comic 8/10 “The series is in keeping with the irreverent tone of the Rick and Morty comics and Lovecraft’s work are treated with both respect and appropriate disdain for Lovecraft himself. If you’re a Rick and Morty fan, you’ll enjoy this comic.”

Comic Book Club: “The Zub is super smart. He’s a super geek and goes super hard and I’m glad this is no exception…If you love the show you’re gonna love this comic.”

Comic Town: “The book, the art, it’s just amazing. It looks like you’re reading the animated series…and there’s a plot twist at the end that I did not see coming.”

The Geekiary: “As a fan of the show, I think that Zub’s narrative had the tone of the long-running animated series down. That gelled well with Troy Little’s illustrations and Leonardo Ito’s colors. In a sense, my mind actually saw the panels play out as a normal Rick and Morty animated episode would. Complete with the proper voice acting.”

League of Comic Geeks: 9/10 “Lovecraft’s works are both lovingly homaged and brutally eviscerated.”

The Outerhaven: “As I’m reading the dialogue panels, I can just hear the characters in my head squabbling as if they were on TV! It definitely helped with the immersion but what can I say? This is Rick and Morty through and through.”

The Pullbox: 9/10 “Little brings an unconventional, cartoony style into this world of mayhem and mischief, and nails the look of the show. His spin on the character designs fits perfectly, no small thing with a property as loved as this one, where trying to ‘make it your own’ could bring a fan backlash of epic proportions.”

We Have issues: “I want to see where this goes, because it’s absolutely ridiculous and I loved it.”

Rick and Morty VS Cthulhu Launches in December!


Just When You Thought Cthulhu Was All Played Out in The Pop Culture Ecosystem!

September 19, 2022 (PORTLAND, OR) – Oni-Lion Forge, in collaboration with Warner Bros. and Adult Swim, announces the release of a new Rick and Morty miniseries, Rick and Morty VS Cthulhu, launching December 7, 2022. This first installment of the four-part miniseries journeys down the Lovecraft rabbit hole, reuniting the Eisner-nominated creative team from Rick and Morty VS Dungeons & Dragons — writer Jim Zub, illustrator Troy Little, colorist Leonardo Ito, and letterer Crank!

Fans of Rick and Morty have spent the past few years speculating on the almost-century-old cosmic villain as all episode’s opening credits feature a quick glimpse of Cthulhu, and more recently “Baby Cthulhu,” in the closing credits.

“Lovecraft horror has stuck around for decades because it asks important questions like ‘Does humanity matter in the face of an unfeeling unknowable universe?’” waxes creator Jim Zub. “Rick and Morty asks equally pertinent questions about ourselves, our existence, and the jerks who create our pop culture, so I figured it was time to peanut butter that chocolate and take a big bite.”

Returning to the creative well is Troy Little. Zub says, “Troy is one of the absolute best cartoonists in comics. His ability to take every over-the-top moment I write and translate them into jaw-dropping pages full of humor and emotion made Rick and Morty VS Dungeons & Dragons and its sequel a huge hit. Now we’re back for a third interdimensional outing, but this one is even more messed up than before. Troy’s spin on Lovecraft’s tales of cosmic horror will bust guts and break minds. You are not prepared.”

“… If you are reading this, I’ve already succumbed to the madness,” shares illustrator Troy Little. “As a comic artist, I believed I had some innate ability to cope with insanity, but the depths of the horror I have been forced to illustrate have tested my very limits. I only hope that this warning reaches you in time. If you have access to a portal gun, do not hesitate to flee into any other dimension.”

Little warns of cocreator Jim Zub, “His phosphorus yellow eyes… I still see them in my waking dreams. The words written with cryptic symbols only I can understand. I am compelled to draw these indescribable beasts and bear witness to the fate of Rick and Morty. This madman the ancients call ZUB weaves a tale so moist you can feel it. For this wordsmith I would sacrifice my sanity. All for ZUB.”

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…

D&D VS Rick and Morty: The RPG Adventure Reviews

Bravo, Bard: “There is plenty here to please any fan of the show, and does well to highlight what makes the show loved by many. As an introductory product it works well; new players will be able to run this adventure with minimal effort, allowing them to focus on the fun new experience it brings. “ “Dungeons & Dragons vs. Rick and Morty is a hoot, and I’d be willing to play again in a heartbeat. Anyone looking to spice things up at the gaming table would do well to seriously consider it.”

Dice Monkey: ” There’s also just a lot of really weird stuff going on there. For myself, I would probably throw one or two of these rooms into a mad scientist dungeon, or use it as a bizarre level of the Dungeon of the Mad Mage.”

Dungeons & Donuts: “It’s a suitably meta and sci-fi twist on a D&D adventure that’s sure to please die-hard fans of the show most of all.”

EN World: “The Rulebook also does an excellent job of explaining how a role-playing game works, better than most. Ignore some of Rick’s ravings about power, and it has solid DMing advice.”

Gamespot: “This set gives you the tools to start playing in a simplified format before you dive into a major campaign–because D&D has a huge learning curve, this is a nice way to dip your feet into the water.”

Gaming Gang: 8/10 “Dungeons & Dragons Vs Rick and Morty will sure to please those who dig the Adult Swim show and are looking to give D&D a try. The included adventure is intersting, if a bit lightweight, and contains plenty of nods to the animated series.”

Geek Dad: ” I think the theme and execution of the Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty set are exquisite. The set stays true to the themes, humor, and characters of the show, highlighting some of the most meme-worthy moments in the show’s history. While I wouldn’t play this set with kids under 16, I think it’s a roaring good time to play with adults.”

Geek Tyrant: “If you enjoy Rick and Morty and want to try D&D, or you want to try to get your friends into D&D, D&D vs Rick and Morty is a great tool to help with that. Heck, even if you already play and like Rick and Morty, this would be a fantastic dungeon crawl to run and I’m sure you and your friends would never forget.”

Geek Wire: “The Lost Dungeon of Rickedness is an adventure made just like Gygax used to do it, with constant action, harsh punishments for stupidity, rewards for creative problem-solving, and most crucially, no rhyme or reason to it at all.”

IGN: “it’s clear that the team behind this crossover is incredibly invested in striking a great balance between paying homage to and reverently adapting the source material while also making the adventure accessible to new players”

io9: “it was great to take a break from the norm and embrace the silly, stupid fun of Dungeons & Dragons. In the world of Rick and Morty, anything is possible…everything is encouraging.”

The Gamer: “DMs will be easily able to bring out the more bizarre, Rick-infused properties of the dungeon to get genuine laughs and gasps from players. In some ways, the dungeons is designed to prey upon the expectations of veteran adventurers.”

Nerdvana: “In true Rick and Morty fashion, both the rulebook and adventure encourage you to throw out the material presented when convenient or necessary, making it your own in an appropriately subversive Rickth Edition.”

Tribality: “I think it would be a ton of fun to run for players looking for a silly dungeon, especially as a break from a serious campaign. If you are a fan of the show or comic and want to run a Rick & Morty mini-campaign, then this box set is worth the price.”
