The RICK AND MORTY VS. DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS crossover, co-published by Oni Press and IDW Publishing, is getting collected.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Join the New York Times-bestselling fantasy author, Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicle), acclaimed comics writer Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward), and Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) for the comics collection crossing over two famous properties, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty™ and Dungeons & Dragons! Announced last year at C2E2, this hit 4-issue series is collected in trade paperback, out now in bookstores!
When Morty sees a cute girl at school playing Dungeons & Dragons, he asks Rick to show him the ropes, only to discover that his grandfather is a veteran gamer. Next thing he knows, the entire family has been pulled into a campaign that escalates from virtual D&D simulations to alternate universes governed by the rules of the game. And as it turns out, Rick isn’t the only one who knows his way around a d20. Rick and Morty™ vs. Dungeons & Dragons is an irreverent, unexpected adventure sure to please fans of both franchises.
