The Vindicators Return In New Rick and Morty Comic

Rick and Morty is still a global phenomenon, with many loving the third season earlier this year. It continued mixing great comedy and satire with hardcore sci-fi aspects, all of which were present during The Vindicators. This episode was essentially a parody of superhero films like The Avengers and quickly became a favorite among fans.

While most of them died at the end of that episode, fans will be able to know these characters a bit more with Rick and Morty Presents, a new comic series from Oni Press. This series will focus on the popular supporting characters from the show, starting with The Vindicators on March 7, 2018.

Each issue will focus on a different character/set of characters and will be self-contained. The first issue will be about The Vindicators, while the second will spotlight Krombopulos Michael. All issues will be 40 pages, so they'll be a bit thicker than your usual comic.
