Oni Press is promising a new Rick and Morty miniseries for 2021, Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart, publishing in February 2021.
Based on the fourth season of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, Oni Press promises that "it's going to get crazy for the Smiths and Rick Sanchez as new favourite characters collide in Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart. Catch the outrageous Balthromaw and his band of dragon adventurers in an all-new, tantalizing adventure where only Morty can save them. And when Teddy Rick shows up and ruins Rick's ultimate vacation plan, no one is safe!"
"Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart is one of the wildest stories we've told yet" says Senior Editor, Licensing, Robert Meyers. 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!" And that writer "Josh Trujillo was able to visit the Rick and Morty writers room to get inside information on the fan-favourite characters from season four of the hit show."
Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart joins other Rick and Mort comics in 2021, including new issues in the Rick and Morty Presents series, Rick and Morty: Ever After, and more. Rick and Morty: Worlds Apart is slated to launch February 3, 2021.
