Review by Booklist Reviews

A Rick and Morty spinoff inspired by the Pocket Mortys mobile app? Wubba lubba dub dub! In a dark corner of the multiverse, Mortys, Ricks, and even Jerrys abound. Yet not all alternate selves are created equal (just ask Ants-in-My-Eyes Morty); the belching, ever-enterprising Ricks and their elite squad, the Council of Ricks, rule the land. Hapless mutant Mortys, their subjects, are captured, chipped, and forced to fight. But thanks to a glitch in his manipulation chip, Morty—Plain Morty, that is—walks free, and this stuttering, pubescent antihero will stop at nothing to free his kind. Maintaining continuity with the beloved Adult Swim cartoon, Howard's witty adaptation stretches pop-culture parodies to gleefully absurd extremes. Here, riffs on virtual creature-collection games, including Pokémon and Neko Atsume, erupt in insatiable bloodlust. And though each hulking, butt-faced, arm-headed Rick and Morty variation is zanier than the last, Ellerby and Farina's portrayals of wide-eyed Morty, slobber-mouthed Rick, and their feverish, futuristic realm remain altogether distinctive. A darkly funny, fantastically irreverent addition to the Rick and Morty-verse—grab your portal guns and hop in. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
