Rick and Morty team up to save a summer camp from an evil real estate developer in this cameo-packed homage to cheesy 1980s camp comedies, "Mortballs!" Unfortunately for Morty, his idyllic summertime adventure begins to unravel when reality itself starts coming apart at the seams!

    This is without a doubt the funniest issue of the series yet. It doesn't go completely bonkers with science fiction, but gives us enough taste to satiate that part of the title. Meanwhile it's hilarious from beginning to end. Read this! Read Full Review

    Comic Plug - Matt Aug 18, 2015

    As I mentioned earlier, the direct comedy style of Rick and Morty isn't overbearing because they do it right. And the writer's self-critical nods lend perfectly to the twists throughout. Rick remains the smartest person in the room, and therefore takes no interest in Morty's silly problems. This allows Morty to be the star this week, and so we get all the kooky humor of an insecure fourteen year old boy. Definitely another winner from the folks over at Oni Press, so be sure to grab a copy! Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Aug 20, 2015

    A simple issue, it begins with Morty in a summer camp and Rick being the counselor of the camp. Things seem off right away, and the issue celebrates the randomness with a lot of characters making easter egg like cameos. This is an issue for the fans, and plenty of references only a hardcore fan will truly appreciate. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Aaron Sullivan Aug 20, 2015

    This is something that I'm certain most any of my friends (even those that don't read comics) would enjoy. It's the kind of comic I'd leave a hardcopy of on an end table by my couch. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something funny. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Aug 19, 2015

    I've got no problem with the quality of the content of these stories, but with yet another issue making me wish I had the story on my TV screen, I think it's time to pack it in. Read Full Review

    I found this issue to be slightly confusing but it did make up for it by being pretty funny. The art has been consistently awesome but they seem to be saving the good storylines for the show. I can't blame them for that.
