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 Book.com: 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.”
