    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 6, 2018

    Ultimately then, the first issue of this new series provides a fun swipe at the absurdity of big two cape-and-cowl comics, but perhaps lacks a little of the smart, subversive approach that has become synonymous with Rick and Morty over the years. There are definitely some laughs to be had here, but it feels like its missing that spark of creativity to elevate it from just another Rick and Morty story to the realm of something truly special. That said, its still well worth a look if youre a fan of the show although that's something that could pretty much be said for all of Onis Rick and Morty output so far. Read Full Review

    Rick and Morty comics are typically very funny, but this spin-off relies completely on the humor created by the show and does nothing original to make the comic stand out. I finished my reading with the feeling that I could have just watched the original episode instead. Read Full Review

    The issue looks decent enough, and there are one or two moments that earn the issue's premise, but this one is purely or the Rick and Morty completionist. Read Full Review
