More Sci-Fi Hilarity Ensues in New Issues from Oni Press in 2019
The renowned one-shot quarterly series, Rick and Morty Presents is back for a second volume, with four new, oversized single issues on the horizon including Jerry, Mr. Meeseeks, The Flesh Curtains, and Unity. The comic series tells four standalone stories, each focused on a different Rick and Morty character from the critically-acclaimed Adult Swim show that follows sociopathic genius scientist, Rick Sanchez, who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.
“I love this PRESENTS format, because it allows the stellar creative teams to explore well-known characters like Jerry, or Mr. Meeseeks, in completely surprising ways!” said Sarah Gaydos, Oni Press’s Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing. “But it also allows us to dive into quirky, fan-favorite characters like Unity (Rick’s ex!) or Rick’s band, The Flesh Curtains (starring Rick, Squanchy, and BirdPerson). I can’t wait for readers to see what this incredible roster of talent has in store for them.”

A message from Mr. Meeseeks: You ASKED for it, and we’re obligated to deliver! That’s what Meeseeks DO, after all! But WAIT… who the heck asked us to find the MEANING OF LIFE?!? THIS IS ONLY A 30 PAGE STAND-ALONE STORY!! I’m Mr. Meeseeks and this will not end well!

Learn the true origins of THE FLESH CURTAINS, Rick’s rock band with BirdPerson and Squanchy! Booed off of every stage, they consider giving up… until Rick invents a machine capable of writing songs people can’t resist. But when their multi-dimensional concert goes awry, Rick suddenly finds himself in massive debt to a ruthless alien loan shark. Will Rick do the safe thing and play the music guaranteed to make the band a success, or do the insane thing and play the music guaranteed to alienate almost everyone in order to impress his favorite musician?
Rick and Morty Presents: Unity #1
(W) Tini Howard, (A) CJ Cannon, (C) Joshua Perez, (CA) A: CJ Cannon and Joshua Perez, B: Sina Grace
It takes a special kind of madness to capture and imprison Rick Sanchez — the kind of madness only an ex can deliver. Unity wants to make a play to take over the galaxy, and she’ll need the best (and worst) of her exes in her clutches to do it. And Rick wants his Party Naked t-shirt back, she stole it when they broke up.
The first issue of the second series of Rick and Morty Presents is scheduled for release March 13, 2019, with the subsequent issues releasing in June, September, and November.
