Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons #1 (of 4)
When Morty needs to learn how to play D&D to keep up with the cool kids, his hard-drinking, old school-gaming, mad science-making grandpa is happy to teach him how to roll the dice, but neither of them is prepared for the saving throws they’re about to fail or the true quest yet to come. Strap on a +1 longsword and grab your 10-foot pole, because this is going to be a gaming gauntlet like no other! The world’s greatest role-playing game. Reality’s most dysfunctional family. What could go wrong?

    I'm not much of a Rick and Morty fan, but I love Rothfuss and D&D. This comic was super funny and pulls in all the different D&D fandoms and tropes, even down to little details in the artwork. Usually I pass on single-issue comics in favor of trades, as single-issues often leave me frustrated at paying for a tiny piece of story and stuck waiting for the rest. This comic tells a story which is satisfying in itself, while still clearly being part of a larger story arc.

There are things (especially with some of Rick's teaching and advice regarding D&D) that strike me as spot on for his characterization. The D&D nerd in me was well pleased by what I've seen so far. There are a few jokes and references that may go over some heads if they are not familiar with the rise of D&D as podcast and live streaming show. And I got chuckle out of a one panel throw away gag at the expense of some other, well known, RPG adjacent game.Over all, rather enjoyed it. Looking forward to issue #2.

The way it shows one panel at a time makes everything large enough to read and helps you focus on one scene at a time. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

    I wasn't sure if I was gonna love this or not but it was worth the punt. I felt like it was a little slow to start but the ending (like the hilarious repercussions for one too many puns) more than made up for it. It felt just like watching an episode of the show only far more exciting because charecter sheets! and dice! and shiny stabby stabby things! The characters were true to their pre established selves and I'm looking forward to seeing some lady guilders next issue.

Good times ahead! Haha!

    Very funny but not really a revelation. There is definitely something lost in translation without the voice actors BUT Rothfuss is an exceptional writer and makes this work as well as it possibly could. Lots of in-jokes and cute references, even feels like it could be an excellent "intro to D&D". Fun read so far.

    Well that was just fantastic.Really captured the spirit of the show. And as someone who hasn't really played D&D, I felt it really did a great job with a soft ramp up for the uninitiated.Very slight spoiler:The whole disappointment riff was just brilliant, I enjoyed that whole page immensely.My only complaint is that now I need to wait for the next one.

    I love the series and had to check it, yo! It's got the same humor as the show and it brings back D&D mammaries :) Gonna read the other two that are currently available. Only $2 per comic on Comixology :D

    Not badI’m a big fan of Rothfuss and generally positive towards the few Rick and Morty episodes I’ve seen. This first comic was basically hitting all the D&D buzzwords. Good enough that I’ll read the next one. And for $0.99 how much of a risk are we actually talking...

    Doesn't have the pace/structure/ characterisation/narrative deconstruction I would have expected from a Rick and Morty story, too much fan-service and WOTC shilling - has promise due to the staff involved only.

    I enjoyed the tale, I have never played Dungeons and Dragons so I probably didn't get all of the references but that didn't take away from my enjoyment because it was quite humorous throughout
