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.

Renegade Games Studios and Oni Press Announce Aggretsuko: Work/Rage Balance

Renegade Game Studios has revealed a new collaboration with Oni Press and Sanrio coming this spring!

Aggretsuko: Work/Rage Balance is a fast-playing card game for 3-6 players, where each player takes the role of a mild-mannered office worker trying to get through their work each day. If a worker becomes frustrated, they can RAGE to let out their inner heavy-metal rock star. RAGING will provide some much-needed relief from the daily grind, but it may have consequences later on.

The first worker to complete all of their work ends the day. The others must count up the cards left in their hands and record the extra hours that they owe the company. If they have too much work left, they may even have to put in overtime!
