Uh oh, someone’s messed up reality again pretty badly…. The Smith family loves each other, Jerry has a job, Summer is nice to Morty… No one is cursing, or suffering from existential melancholy or threat of death. I mean, everything is sort of safe and great, like a 50s sitcom. And what is going on with Rick?! Can Morty fix this all before…well, I guess, before everything works out nicely for everyone for once?

Review: Rick and Morty Presents: Jerry #1

Rick and Morty Presents: Jerry #1

One of the greatest actors of all time, and one whose career was cut way too short, was John Belushi. Anyone who has seen him on Saturday Night Live or any myriad of movies he was in can attest to his truly unique talent. His many skits on SNL were legendary and continue to inspire comedic minds everywhere. To only remember him for his role of John Blutarsky in Animal House is fairly reductive but understandable. He only appeared in 13 movies and every role was also quite memorable.

One of my favorite films by him was Neighbors where he played Earl Keese, a mild-mannered man whose life gets turned upside down by an insufferable couple who moves in next door. His performance in that film would have an inadvertent influence on storytellers everywhere leading them to discover characters who would normally be invisible in life and most stories. One fairly popular example of his inspiration is Stephen Root’s portrayal of Milton in Office Space one that is melancholic and amusing at once. Another such character can be found in Rick and Morty in the character of Jerry who is deftly explored in Rick and Morty Presents: Jerry#1.

We catch up with Jerry, shortly after he gets back with Beth, as his self confidence takes a nosedive when Beth doesn’t find him attractive anymore. This is when Jerry decides to take matters into his own hands buying everything that every weight loss guru sells, that is until Rick offers him a new invention that will get him there faster. The experiment is a success making Jerry a buffer and nicer version of himself but as all Rick’s experiments do, they go haywire, as his new invention has some dangerous side effects, making him a mutant.

Overall, the comic is a funny and entertaining story that captures the feeling of the show. The story by Ryan Ferrier is fun, rollicking, and irreverent. The art by CJ Cannon, Josh Perez, and Sarah Stern is beautiful. Altogether, an amusing story that feels like an episode of Rick and Morty.

In case you missed the first 5 issues of Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comic, here’s a recap:

Rick and Morty #1

Dan Harmon & Justin Roiland’s hilarious hit Adult Swim animated series RICK and MORTY™ now has its own comic book series from Oni Press! Join degenerate superscientist Rick Sanchez as he embarks on all-new insane adventures with his awkward grandson Morty, his teenage granddaughter Summer, his veterinary surgeon daughter Beth, and his hapless son-in-law Jerry. In this issue: Part One of “The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street”!

Rick and Morty #1

Rick and Morty #2

The stars of the hit Adult Swim show continue their first epic comic book adventure in Part Two of “The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street”! Trapped in a winding labyrinth of Rick’s own design, Morty desperately searches for an escape as Rick desperately searches for his hidden cache of booze. Meanwhile, the rest of the family tries to figure out what to do with Morty’s now-vacant room, not to mention the weird alien Jerry accidentally released from Rick’s lab.

Rick and Morty #2

Rick and Morty #3

“The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street” continues! Morty has made it home from the horrors of the labyrinth but Rick remains stranded in a strange alternate universe where Morty is the “Rick” and Rick is the “Morty.” Can our Morty fill in for his missing grandpa and bring Rick home? Plus, Morty and Summer’s other grandpa comes for a visit that the kids will never forget.

Rick and Morty #3

Rick and Morty #4

Old Rick Donald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O! And on that farm he had a VIOLENT PROLETARIAT UPRISING! When Rick refuses to pay his alien workers a fair wage, he finds himself on the business end of a pitchfork. Meanwhile, Morty’s relationship with a beleaguered young milkmaid gets hot and heavy.

Rick and Morty #4

Rick and Morty #5

Rick and Morty team up to save a summer camp from an evil real estate developer in this cameo-packed homage to cheesy 1980’s camp comedies, “Mortballs!” Unfortunately for Morty, his idyllic summertime adventure begins to unravel when reality itself starts coming apart at the seams!

Rick and Morty #5

There will also be a very special limited run of Rick and Morty #1 Lenticular, which will be available in limited quantities at Awesome Con (April 26th-28th) and will also be available on the Oni Press website on May 29th.
