Oni Press has announced a second volume of its quarterly Rick and Morty Presents to begin in March 2019. The four new oversized single issues set for release next year will carry the titles Jerry, Mr. Meeseeks, The Flesh Curtains, and Unity, and feature creators including Ryan Ferrier, CJ Cannon, Joshua Perez, James Asmus, Jim Festante, Lilah Sturges, and Tini Howard.
In a press release, Oni Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing Sarah Gaydos shouted:
I love this PRESENTS format, because it allows the stellar creative teams to explore well-known characters like Jerry, or Mr. Meeseeks, in completely surprising ways! But it also allows us to dive into quirky, fan-favorite characters like Unity (Rick’s ex!) or Rick’s band, The Flesh Curtains (starring Rick, Squanchy, and BirdPerson). I can’t wait for readers to see what this incredible roster of talent has in store for them.
Here’s the lineup of books coming next year:

Rick and Morty™ Presents is back by popular demand! This very special issue focuses on everyone’s favorite character, Jerry. Jerry’s wisely blaming all his marital issues on his Dad-bod. When he goes to Rick for a quick fix, things go so poorly, it’s… demonic. Written by Ryan Ferrier (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Regular Show, D4VE, and more!), with series artists CJ Cannon and Joshua Perez! Features a variant cover by Sina Grace.

A message from Mr. Meeseeks: You ASKED for it, and we’re obligated to deliver! That’s what Meeseeks DO, after all! But WAIT… who the heck asked us to find the MEANING OF LIFE?!? THIS IS ONLY A 30 PAGE STAND-ALONE STORY!! I’m Mr. Meeseeks and this will not end well!
Rick and Morty™ Presents: The Flesh Curtains #1

Learn the true origins of THE FLESH CURTAINS, Rick’s rock band with BirdPerson and Squanchy! Booed off of every stage, they consider giving up… until Rick invents a machine capable of writing songs people can’t resist. But when their multi-dimensional concert goes awry, Rick suddenly finds himself in massive debt to a ruthless alien loan shark. Will Rick do the safe thing and play the music guaranteed to make the band a success, or do the insane thing and play the music guaranteed to alienate almost everyone in order to impress his favorite musician?
Rick and Morty™ Presents: Unity #1
(W) Tini Howard, (A) CJ Cannon, (C) Joshua Perez, (CA) A: CJ Cannon and Joshua Perez, B: Sina Grace
It takes a special kind of madness to capture and imprison Rick Sanchez — the kind of madness only an ex can deliver. Unity wants to make a play to take over the galaxy, and she’ll need the best (and worst) of her exes in her clutches to do it. And Rick wants his Party Naked t-shirt back, she stole it when they broke up.
