Grab Your Bag of Holding for the Rick and Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons: Deluxe Edition

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 LittleRick 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.

Ghostbusters x Men in Black: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion

IDW Games and Sony Pictures Consumer Products announced that their upcoming game, Ghostbusters x Men in Black: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion, is planned for release in fall 2021, with a preorder initiative taking place from March 15th through April 2nd.

Originally announced in 2018, Panda Cult Games and IDW Games recently completed development of Ecto-terrestrial Invasion. Following the original Ghostbusters and Men in Black, as they partner up to take down a brand new threat, Ecto-terrestrial Invasion features a story-heavy campaign book written by Erik Burnham, the longtime scribe of IDW’s Ghostbusters comics. Throughout the game, players will choose from a series of branch points to craft a new storyline each time they play.

Aiming to capture the look and feel of a Saturday morning cartoon, IDW Games tapped fan-favorite artist Derek Laufman to create character and creature designs in his popular chibi style, and engaged Jack LawrenceChris FenoglioLeonardo ItoLuis Antonio Delgadoand Lanza Studio to create over 100 pieces of interior card and tile art.

Finally, Hector ‘Hec’ Moran was brought on to translate Derek’s designs into over a dozen highly detailed miniature sculpts. As such, Ecto-terrestrial Invasion marks the first big collaborative effort between IDW Games, IDW Publishing, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, and stands to be one of IDW Games’ most ambitious releases to date.

When Morty needs to learn how to play D&D to keep up with the cool kids, his hard-drinking, old school-gaming, mad science-making grandpa is happy to teach him how to roll the dice, but neither of them is prepared for the saving throws they’re about to fail or the true quest yet to come. Strap on a +1 longsword and grab your 10-foot pole, because this is going to be a gaming gauntlet like no other!
