Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group, Warner Bros. and Adult Swim announced that Rick and Morty are set for a Lovecraftian adventure this December with the release of the new comic book miniseries. Rick and Morty vs. Cthulhu.
Four-issue series by the Eisner-nominated creative team of Rick and Morty Vs. Dungeons and Dragons — writer Jim Zub, illustrator Troy Little, colorist Leonardo Ito, and writer Crank — promise to put an end to speculation as to why the ancient cosmic villain appears in the opening credits of the animated series.
“Lovecraftian horror has stuck around for decades because it asks important questions like, ‘Does humanity matter in the face of an unknowable universe?'” says creator Jim Zub. “Rick and Morty asks equally pertinent questions about ourselves, our existence, and the idiots who create our pop culture, so I thought it was time to slather that chocolate with peanut butter and take a big bite.”
“Troy is one of the best artists in comics,” Zub continues. “His ability to take every exaggerated moment I write and translate it into stunning pages full of humor and emotion. Rick and Morty Vs. Dungeons & Dragons and its sequel a great success. Now we’re back for a third interdimensional outing, but this one is even more messed up than before. Troy’s spin on Lovecraft’s cosmic horror stories will blow hearts and minds. You’re not ready.”
What could be worse than an off-planet sugar deal gone wrong? Traveling through a Lovecraftian hellscape with the Smiths while battling, uh, sentient cosmic color and racist fish people? This can’t be right…
Welcome to the Rick Sanchez School of Actually Getting S**t Done! And poor bastard Jerry declares that “everything smells of cinnamon and sadness” in this Lovecraftian epic.
Rick and Morty Vs. Cthulhu Part 1: The Whisperer in the Dorkness goes on sale December 7th.
