    Rick and Morty #40 is a genuinely entertaining one-off story that puts our heroes and one of their most famous jokes through a battle royal stress test to see how they stack up. Its a solid comic, and it earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    As the first real Rick and Morty issue I read cover-to-cover, and not simply glanced at, I felt it was fun. It captures the spirit of the series down to a tee. When the words and the art are spot-on, you have a fantastic story that feels like you're reading Rick and Morty. I won't lie, I read their dialogue in my head in their voices. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Jul 25, 2018

    This issue really did a good job of capturing the essence of the characters. Their actions/reactions and motivations are what you would expect from either of them. Also, the humor is a little more crass than the previous issues I’ve read, and I think that will appeal to the fans as well. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 25, 2018

    Both stories are fun in their own ways. The first because it just goes there with no regard to subtlety and sticks the landing with an awesome and unexpected ending. The second story is fun because it encompasses all the subversive humor that Rick and Morty are known for. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Jul 25, 2018

    The first story, written by Kyle Starks, is a riff on a Hunger Games scenario. The second, written by Josh Trujillo, starts as a parody of courtroom dramas and becomes something else by the end. Each is fine, garnering at least a few laughs, but no substitute for the source material. Read Full Review

    This comic honestly makes me laugh as much as the tv show does. The main story was fantastic but the little 4 page short story went right over my head and honestly the book would have been better without it but the book is still solid
