Oni Press Announces their Plans for Rick and Morty #50

Rick and Morty comics creators Kyle Starks, Marc Ellerby, Andrew MacLean, Tini Howard, Jarrett Williams, Sarah Graley, Josh Trujillo, Rii Abrego, Benjamin Dewey, and Sarah Stern return for a special 50th issue of the Oni Press comic. The very special issue is filled with lots of memories… memories Morty would rather forget! Join us as we celebrate this milestone with a super oversized MORTY’S MINDBLOWERS issue with an introduction from Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick and Morty and the voice of Rick Sanchez!

Rick and Morty #50 celebrates the lineage of the first 49 Oni Press issues in this radical 48-page comic with 40 pages of story, all wrapped up in three covers with the first by Marc Ellerby and Sarah Stern, then two connecting covers by comic artist Matt Horak.

And to add to the fun, Oni is also throwing in limited reprints of the first original five issues written by Zac Gorman, illustrated by CJ Cannon, and colored by Ryan Hill, will have additional reprints with five new connecting covers by Marc Ellerby and Sarah Stern.

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.

Truff wants to help, but… the hunter is finally within her grasp, and if she lets him go, she may never get her revenge! Is vengeance all that being a ghost is good for?

Our Super Adventure: Video Games and Pizza Parties

by Sarah Graley and Stef Purenins
(July 16, Teen)

Just how much of the bed should your cats get to take up? If you lose at your video game, should you get a conciliatory hug? Does your partner think that you’re beautiful even though you feel like a goblin today? If any of this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place!

The Black Mage

by Daniel Barnes and D.J. Kirkland
(August 13, Teen)

When St. Ivory Academy, a historically white wizarding school, opens its doors to its first-ever black student, everyone believes that the wizarding community is finally taking its first crucial steps toward inclusivity. Or is it? When Tom Token, the beneficiary of the school’s “Magical Minority Initiative,” begins uncovering weird clues and receiving creepy texts on his phone, he and his friend, Lindsay, stumble into a conspiracy that dates all the way back to the American Civil War, and could cost Tom his very soul.

Super Fun Sexy Times, Volume 1

by Meredith McClaren
(August 20th, Mature)

Cartoonist Meredith McClaren (Hinges) tells five short, sexy stories featuring superheroes, supervillains, sidekicks, and the people who love them. Showing consent and character-driven erotic relationships, Super Fun Sexy Times answers the age-old question: what happens when the mask comes off?

Two sidekicks on opposite sides get stuck in an underground lab together, and find a great way to pass the time. A tactician and superhero discuss their desires, limits, and kinks before their first time, and perhaps get a little too excited in the process. A pair of supervillains explore gender and sex together, while growing closer in their relationship. Lesbian heroes try out a kinky roleplaying scenario, and discover how to make it work for both of them. And an exhausted assassin relaxes after a long day with the kind (yet firm) attentions of his husband.

Told with care, sex-positivity, and humor, and featuring a wide variety of sexualities and bodies, Super Fun Sexy Times aims to create an erotic reading experience that lives up to its name!

Little Witches: Magic in Concord

by Leigh Dragoon
(August 27, Middle Reader)

A charming and magical graphic novel based on Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women! Jo, Beth, Amy, and Meg March are four sisters living in Concord with their parents—Father, who’s tending to soldiers fighting in the Civil War, and Marmee, who teaches the girls simple but effective witchcraft. The Marches have to keep their craft quiet, as there are many in Concord who see magic in a bad light—especially after things have begun disappearing.

When Mr. Laurence, a witchfinder, moves in next door to investigate the missing objects, the girls fear for their livelihood. But he turns out to be a kind old man, and his grandson, Laurie, quickly befriends the Marches. As the cold winter blusters on, the girls continue their education, even as missing objects soon turn into missing people.

Things take a turn for the worse when Jo and Laurie try investigating on their own, and a dangerous storm takes hold of Concord. There’s powerful magic at play here—stronger than anything the Marches, or even Laurie, has ever seen before. Can they hope to defeat it? Or has the magic already become too strong for them to fight against?

Oni Press Launches a Webcomics Hub

Oni Press has launched a new free webcomics hub for all ages. Learn something, share something, and be a part of a community that loves reading and sharing comics at webcomics.onipress.com. Available now are Spectacle (Megan Rose Gedris), Kim Reaper (Sarah Graley), and their most recent release, Draw Out the Vote, by a variety of creators handpicked by Oni Press editor, Robin Herrera!

Spectacle (Young Adult)
Fan-favorite webcomic creator Megan Rose Gedris (Yu+Me Dream) crafts a compelling tale of magic, deception, and wonder in this stunningly illustrated graphic novel about the bond between sisters. Pragmatic engineer Anna works as a psychic in the Samson Brothers Circus, but she doesn’t believe in anything supernatural—until her twin sister Kat is murdered and comes back as a very demanding ghost. Sharing a room with her sister was hard, but now they’re sharing a body while trying to identify the killer. With few leads, a troupe full of secretive folk, and strange paranormal occurrences popping up around the circus, solving the case seems near impossible. But the murderer in their midst may be the least of their problems…

Kim Reaper (Young Adult)
All-star cartoonist Sarah Graley (Our Super Adventure) brings you the supernatural queer rom-com Kim Reaper! Like most university students, Kim works a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife. Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Kim’s classmate Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date! But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a smooch in the bargain.

Draw Out the Vote (Non-fiction)
Voting is our civic duty, and Oni Press wants to make it as easy as possible for people to register and vote in 2018. Fifty-two different artists explore what voting, politics, and living in American mean to them in this collection of black-and-white comics. Cartoonists from each state (plus Washington, DC and Puerto Rico) were invited to contribute to the project, which Oni hopes will increase voter awareness and encourage comics readers to vote in the November midterm elections. Included with each comic are instructions on how to register to vote in each state—as well as what to do to actually vote, and other things to note that may affect your ability to vote.

You will find the release of more comics, featuring the classic kids comic Banana Sunday by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover on October 5th, and the action-packed war story Guerillas by Brahm Revel on October 8th, with even more awesome webcomics to come!
