Earlier in the year, we found out some amazing news especially if you are a fan of the Adult Swim series Rick And Morty. The great news is that they ordered 70 plus more episodes which means we have a lot of Rick And Morty to come in our future. Back in March of this year, Oni Press started releasing some one shot specials with the first one being The Vindicators besides the Rick And Morty comic that comes out already. Since, it is NCBD (New Comic Book Day), I figured that I would share with you guys the latest one shot to come from the world of Rick and Morty in Rick And Morty Presents Krombopulos Michael which was written by Daniel Mallory Ortberg and illustrated by CJ Cannon (Rick And Morty) and Nick Filardi (Batman Beyond 2.0). The story follows everyone’s favorite Gromflomite assassin who loves to kill people and I mean he LOVES to kill people. The comic is kind of an origin story, it follows Michael from the current time all the way back to when he first started killing after his meeting with Rick Sanchez. For more info on the comic and what every else Oni Press related just click here.
From his first appearance on the episode Mortynight Run, I was a fan of this assassin because he’s just absurd in how much he loves to kill. It’s just a little funny that on his planet, no one gives a crap that he just loves to kill people, but then again how many others are out there just like him? I am definitely enjoying what they are doing over at Oni Press with these one shots because you either get to see an adventure with them or you get to learn their origins. I am definitely excited at the next one that’s coming, but I am hoping for a Mr. Meeseeks one. I loved the artwork in the comic because it felt like I was reading an episode of the show. When you do comic books based off of my favorite shows, I am a complete stickler for how the artwork is going to look and these two did a great job. I loved the issue and what the story was about because it was comical and the artwork was great. What more could you ask for? Check out my grades below:
