Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It is a new comic book miniseries based on the popular Adult Swim television series and inspired by the Pocket Mortys mobile game! 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?

    Rick is capturing all the Mortys he can to battle other Ricks and Morty's not having it. A nice twist on the beloved videogame/trading card franchise, with Morty showing characters shouldn't be caught at all. The art is as good as the series with plenty of quick visual jokes. Read Full Review

    Ellerby and Farina do a great job of bringing the show fell to the comic. The lines and coloring style make it feel like you're looking at show cells instead of comic book panels. They bring life to the overall story, which is far-fetched but humorous. Read Full Review

    Rick and Morty: Pocket Like You Stole It #1 is an entertaining and funny comic, though its pacing is a bit fast and might be more enjoyable for fans of the mobile game rather than just fans of the show. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 6, 2017

    Pocket It Like You Stole It is an enjoyable addition to Oni's growing Rick and Morty library. This first issue captures the look, feel and general sense of humor of the show while also offering a different perspective on the mobile gaming source material. The art quality doesn't always hold up, but fans hungry for more Rick and Morty could do far worse. Read Full Review

    Overall, the comic is not a mere cynical ploy to grab cash, but a work into which people put thought and fun. Is it a monumental must read? No. Is it a good adaptation? Yes. It is an entertaining read, but only if you really enjoy Rick and Morty. Read Full Review

    Fun, authentic, but not quite reaching those Szechuan sauce levels of must have just yet, this is still a great way to indulge your Rick and Morty fix while youre waiting for the third season to premiere at the end of the month. Read Full Review
