In this standalone issue illustrated by series writer Kyle Starks (Sexcastle), Morty takes on America's second-favorite pastime: the illustrious sport of basketball. In an attempt to win Jessica's affections, Morty uses alien technology to become the best there ever was at putting a ball into a hoop. But as Morty's star rises, will Rick get left back on the ground? And is he really going to put up with that?

    Oni Press' Rick and Morty has proven itself ten times over, especially with issues like this that are self contained. Kyle Starks is very good at capturing the characters, the wacky originality of the scenarios, and the most importantly the sense of humor of the show. Here's to hoping he continues to write this series for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Made complete with a violent Christmas themed back up from Marc Ellerby, Rick and Morty #20 is a prime example of how to make the most out of a standalone issue. Read Full Review

    Basketball, babes, and bugs from another dimension create hilarity. The art on the first story didn't work for me, but this will keep fans happy as they wait for new episodes. Riotous and recommended. Read Full Review

    Kyle Starks writes a hilarious done-in-one issue, however his artwork is so amateurish that it takes me out of the story. Please keep Starks as a writer but not an artist. The Christmas themed backup story is superb and well drawn, featuring a monstrous Santa that goes berserk when he doesn't get his cookies and milk. The backup almost outshines the main story.
