Rick and Morty Roll the Dice with Dungeons & Dragons!

Announced at C2E2, IDW Publishing and Oni Press are bringing two of the most popular properties in the world, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty and Dungeons & Dragons, together in a brand-new four-issue comic book series. Taking the reins of these two iconic properties is the superstar creative team of writers Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub along with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little .

Debuting this August, the mini-series will throw Rick and Morty into a high-fantasy adventure blended with the wit, humor, and intelligence the show is widely celebrated for.

In this summer’s biggest comic book crossover, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.

Each issue will feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets, and more! Dungeons & Dragons comics from IDW by Jim Zub are available now wherever books are sold. Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comics are also available where comics and books are sold.

Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell

Christopher Bryan (d)

The Cell Games are on, and the world’s greatest fighters have gathered to see if they have what it takes to defeat the perfect warrior. Teaming up to take him down, Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Krillin, Trunks, and Piccolo must strategize together in order to stop the supposedly unstoppable machine.

In Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, 1 to 4 players will each take control of an iconic Dragon Ball Z fighter and roll their dice to generate energy. Using custom icons, players allocate their dice into performing attacks, helping other players, or buying upgrades. Players need to work together though, as Cell will continue to generate new threats that can heal him, damage all players, or lock players out of potentially game-changing upgrades.

1 – 4 players • Playable from ages 14+ • 30 – 45 minutes • MSRP $39.99 • UPC: 8-27714-01421-1

 

The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory—Everything Is Connected

Matt Fantastic (d) • Samantha Barlin (a & c)

“What exactly happened out there, agent?” After another truly unbelievable case comes to an end, Agent Fox Mulder finds himself in a familiar seat—directly across from his superiors at the FBI. While Agent Scully urged him to tell a story that the panel would accept, Mulder’s need to believe is just too great.

In The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory—Everything Is Connected players take turns as Fox Mulder, as he uses the provided clues to explain his conspiracy theory to his FBI superiors. But reputation is everything at the FBI, and Mulder’s superiors are more interested in voting with the room rather than their gut. Mulder weaves together the conspiracy, and the superiors must deduce the way the rest of the room will vote… because the only thing worse than being an outlier is being a conspiracy theorist like Fox Mulder.

3 – 8+ players • Playable from ages 16+ • 20 – 60 minutes • MSRP $29.99 • UPC: 8-27714-01497-6
