The Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group and IDW Publishing bring back Adult Swim’s cult-favorite Rick and Morty: Dungeons & Dragons in an all-new hardcover deluxe edition, including a specially created Mr. Meeseeks story and featuring new cover art from Troy Little coming August 2021. Grab your dice, pencils, and spellbooks as Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons returns in a complete collected adventure from the creative forces of writers Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub, illustrator Troy Little, colorist Leonardo Ito, with lettering by Crank! and Robbie Robbins, and a foreword from Jim Zub.
The deluxe edition will feature a brand-new cover, as well as all eight issues of the hit series, include backmatter from the Oni Press and IDW single issues, and an all-new story from Jim Zub and Troy Little featuring Mr. Meeseeks conquering the Forgotten Realms!
When Morty asks Rick for help learning how to play the classic role-playing game because he has a crush on a girl, it ends up drawing the entire family into a D&D world, where they inadvertently help the “bad guys” win but eventually make it right in the end. And in the hit series Painscape, when magical D&D adventures come to Earth, no one will survive the Painscape! The world’s greatest role-playing game returns to plague the world’s most dysfunctional animated family, and this time Rick knows they can’t just rest on brand-name recognition and curiosity. But even Rick Sanchez can’t predict what will happen when long-abandoned characters come back for revenge.
The new, complete deluxe edition includes over 250 pages of monsters, mayhem, and a bag of holding-worth of bonus materials—including the all-new story from Jim Zub and Troy Little. Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons: Deluxe Edition will be available online and in stores on August 4, 2021. IDW Publishing will simultaneously release a 750 copy limited run of Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons: Deluxe Edition, featuring an exclusive cover by Max Dunbar and signed by Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub.
