Rick and Morty vs. Cthulhu seems like an idea whose time has come. Or rather, an idea that’s been teased as long as the show has existed. The final shot of the opening sequence in EVERY episode is Rick, Morty and Summer speeding away in a spaceship, being chased by Lovecraft’s most famous monster, who then swallows the screen. Like that box of “Time Travel Stuff,” it seems Cthulhu is a thing the show will forever tease but never actually do…which means it’s up to the comics.
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.
