Rick And Morty Begins Final Mega-Story, The Rickoning, in Oni Press 2019 November Solicitations

Rick & Morty #56 is to be published in November, the first of a five-part story, The Rickoning, something new for the comic book. And also taking it up to #60, and five years of Rick & Morty comic books at Oni Press. The original contract for the comic book series from Oni Press was for five years, and in the interim, Rick & Morty has become a major pop cultural lodestone. Will things change in mid-2020? Will another publisher outbid Oni Press? Will it be time for another reboot?

It is, after all, The Rickoning…

There’s also a Rick & Morty one-shot, for Unity, and the continuing Rick & Morty/Dungeons & Dragons crossover. Invader Zim is one issue shy of its #50 moment in the spotlight. And the launch of Gudetama: Love for the Lazy by Wook Jin Clark.

And it’s much harder to fight a battle when the only family you care about stands against you. Courtney’s only salvation lies in the Twilight Kingdom, where witches and wizards dare not enter. But Aloysius is no ordinary wizard, and he won’t give up on his niece so easily… even if it means going to war with the night creatures.
