It had to happen (or did it)? Rick and Morty wound up in the apocalypse and have to fend for themselves, just like the protagonists of a really great PS3 video game. This is the latest cover of Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comic book. Note that they strike the same poses as Joel and Ellie do in the game, and it’s a nice touch that they’re surrounded by Meeseeks instead of zombies.
The bad news here is that this cover likely has no relation to the inside content, because it’s an alternate variant cover that will only be available at various conventions. If you want one, then hang around cons that Oni Press will have a booth at during the spring and summer of ’16. We can confirm PAX Prime, New York Comic Con and Gen Con will be stocking some.
Even though the tease of a Last of Us parody was false, Rick & Morty is more savvy toward gamer culture than most other programs. The staff writers are confirmed gamers, and their latest iOS game, Pocket Mortys, is an undeniable Pokemon spoof.
