Oni Press has announced a new Rick and Morty comic book to add to their growing line of licensed comic books, Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It. The premise of the new series, inspired by the popular Pocket Mortys mobile game, is that catching Mortys becomes a blood sport.
The creative team for the mini-series is writer Tini Howard (The Skeptics, Power Rangers: Pink, @tinihoward), artist Marc Ellerby (Rick and Morty backup artist, @marcellerby), and colorist Katy Farina (Steven Universe, Rick and Morty, @Kate_Farina).
Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It launches on July 5th, 2017, but fans can catch a preview in Oni’s Rick and Morty FCBD 2017 Edition on Free Comic Book Day, May 6, 2017.
In this five issue series, Morty is on a quest to free himself (and all the other Mortys) from the clutches of Ricks, who collect Mortys and force them to battle one another for schmeckles and glory. Along the way, he’ll discover the grisly history of Morty battling, the dastardly lengths that Ricks are willing to stoop to in order to win, and perhaps… the strength in himself that’s needed to free the Mortys once and for all?
