The Smith family and Ricky Sanchez will face another wild adventure as they encounter newly added characters, including the dragon Balthromaw and Rick’s alter ego, fascist Teddy Rick. Reportedly, Morty will become the ultimate lifesaver. Moreover, Teddy shows up and ruins Rick’s vacation plans.
Senior Editor, Licensing, Robert Meyer shares insights on what to expect in the upcoming mini-series. He said:
“Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart is one of the wildest stories we’ve told yet. The four-part miniseries will feature the creative team of Josh Trujillo, Tony Fleecs, Jarrett Williams, Leonardo Ito, and Crank! ”bringing it all to life, including perhaps the kinkiest team of super-villains to ever grace a comic-book page!”
Meyers further stated:
“Josh Trujillo was able to visit the Rick and Morty writers room to get inside information on the fan-favorite characters from season four of the hit show.”
Other “Rick and Morty” comic series is bound for release
World’s Apart will only be the first of the long lines of Rick and Morty comic versions. While the animated series is already a big hit, fans of the comic series can expect new issues on Rick and Morty Presents, Rick and Morty: Ever After.
