This felt surprisingly true, not just to the characters, but to the feel of the show. It's funny, but occasionally poignant, and the motivations (and their results) all click together well. That said, the final two issues are clearly stronger than the first two (issue 1 is basically an infodump on what Dungeons & Dragons is + jokes, while issue 2 is Rick powergaming endlessly), and that is where the heart of the story lies. Rick is a bit sidelined for the rest of the family in the final two issues, but as he gets a lot of space in the first two and has the main character arc in the book, I'm surprisingly OK with that. So the writing satisfied (though a tad uneven, and likely a bit boring to those not particularly familiar with D&D in the first two issues before the story gets proper legs of its own), and the artwork is quite great -- I really felt like I was watching the show, and the cover gallery in the back is a treat in and of itself as well. I'd say a Rick and Morty fan with no interest in D&D will find this moderately OK, but it should be quite great to someone invested in both properties -- the writers' are clearly deeply affectionate towards both intellectual properties they are handling, and their fondness for the material shines through throughout the book.

Haiku summary

You've got to--belch!--roll for initiative, Morty! Two pop-culture juggernauts are teaming up and neither multiverse is prepared for what comes next! 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. #1 New York Times-bestselling fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss (The Name of the Wind), acclaimed comics writer Jim Zub (Dungeons & Dragons: Evil at Baldur's Gate, Skullkickers), and Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) bring you the comics crossover of the year! It's an irreverent, unexpected adventure sure to please fans of both franchises. Collects the complete four issue miniseries.… (more)
