When Morty sees a cute girl at school playing Dungeons & Dragons, he asks Rick to show him the ropes, only to discover that his grandfather is a veteran gamer. Next thing he knows, the entire family has been pulled into a campaign that escalates from virtual D&D simulations to alternate universes governed by the rules of the game. And as it turns out, Rick isn't the only one who knows his way around a d20.

My Thoughts on Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons

4 stars

Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons is a fun-packed graphic novel that fits perfectly into the show's canon. It may be written by Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub instead of the show creators, but you wouldn't know as they perfectly capture the show's feel.

The book is split into four episodes, each standing alone while still feeling part of a broader story. It's also wonderfully illustrated with several D&D Hall of Famer cameos, a particular highlight for me.

You may be wondering if you need to like D&D to enjoy it, and to that, I'd answer you don't, but it helps. If you're a show fan, you'll enjoy it regardless, but if you're not into D&D, you will miss some references and in jokes.

The best thing about Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons is that it feels like an episode. Funny, irreverent and packed with superb illustrations …
