Buy This Comic: DEATH ORB #1Buy This Comic: MAN-EATERS #1 Stay on target The Rick & Morty fanbase has grown much larger since the series premiere back in 2013. With Adult Swim getting ready to air the third season in July, fans have been clamoring for more time traveling insanity; layered with relatable and smart quips. Luckily for us comic readers, Oni Press has been given the go-ahead to open up the rich universe of Rick and Morty and lay it into our laps bi-monthly. If that wasn’t enough for you, a second spin-off comic is hitting store shelves this week, and it’s based off the [AS] mobile game Pocket Mortys titled…RICK AND MORTY: POCKET LIKE YOU STOLE IT(W) Tini Howard (A) Marc EllerbyThe new mini-series is written by Tini Howard (Power Rangers: Pink), illustrated by Marc Ellerby (Rick & Morty comic) and colored by Katy Farina (Steven Universe). PLYSI takes the simple idea from the mobile game and gives it an edge. For instance, the first issue opens up with Morty protecting Mermaid Morty who are both on the run. The two are low on food and water. And things are not looking so great for the escapees. This is all a game to the hunter, Rick (isn’t it though?). This whole theme feels as if the world of Pokemon joined forces with Battle Royal and Rick has no remorse for Morty or any of his terrified clones.One great thing about the Rick and Morty comics is that the laughs are never dumbed-down for readers. The jokes in PLYSI are just as funny as the ones in the television series, and at times more-so. The interactions also feel genuine and right out of the show. Howard does a fantastic job at this and beautifully conveys the characters for who they are. I mean it would not be Rick and Morty without the odd speech impediments!Ellerby and Farina have worked on the original Rick and Morty comic, so their style is as solid as ever. In this issue, it’s all about laying low from the hunter, as if they’re retelling a bad installment from The Hunger Games . The outdoor colors are rich, and the Mortys are always changing. Part of the fun of this issue is just spotting all the different and hilariously embarrassing Mortys.This entry into the Rick and Morty universe is strong, and fans of both the series and the game will get a kick out of it.
