"ARC received from netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Summer is tired of it being ‘hundred years Rick and Morty’ and wants to be part of the adventure. Enter Mr PB. . . yes the same Mr PB who her family stabbed to death previously. Adventure and hilarity ensues.

The comic was true to the characters from the adult swim, from Rick being his disgustingly brilliant self, to Jerry just being Jerry. Although there were only glimpses to these characters and Rick during the comic, it still felt like they were completely involved.

Summer and Mr PB’s adventure reads like an episode from the show and is laugh out loud funny at parts. It was good to see Summer in control of the adventure for once and kicking alien butt.

My favourite part of the comic however would be the scene with Rick and Mr PB at prom, it was perfect!

The artwork was definitely reminiscent of the TV show, and fit in perfectly with the story. I would definitely be up for reading another Rick and Morty comic in the future.

"As a big Rick & Morty fan, I was excited when I saw that NetGalley had Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar available for review. Even more exciting was the fact that this story focused on Summer and Mr. Poopybutthole. After being shot by Beth in the season two episode, "Total Rickall", Mr. Poopybutthole has been in hiding. Desperate for help, he returns to seek assistance from Summer back on his home planet, where Mr. Poopybutthole has been living an entirely different life.

I've come to like Mr. Poopybutthole - ridiculous name and all - so this was a blast to read. And I love how they managed to interweave bits with Rick & Jerry, even when they didn't entirely flow with the rest of the story taking place.

While the comics will never compare to the show, Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar was quite an enjoyable read. It's quick and light and fun. Sure, the art style leaves something to be desired at times, but overall, I found this to be a nice addition to the R&M world.

" I really wish they had gone more into why Mr. Poopybutthole is such a huge celebrity but I guess it's going to be one of those weird things that doesn't get an explanation.Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5Total review score: 2.8 " said.

"This comic starts off with Summer sitting at the table with Rick and Morty as they discuss another awesome adventure they had with just the two of them. She runs off after yelling at them and finds Mr. Poopybutthole in her room. He tells her he’s not ready to see the rest of the family after what happened in the Total Rickall episode with the parasites but he has unfinished business and he wants her help. The comic then follows Summer and Mr. Poopybutthole as they go to another planet, Summer goes to jail, they shoot a lot of guns and Summer, Mr. Poopybutthole and Rick go to prom! It was definitely an entertaining comic and I’d continue on with it because I love how it ended as well.

The illustrations are pretty great with the same look of the show but with a rounder and quicker drawing style. There was a lot of effort put into the drawing of these comic as well with depth and detailed background settings. The writing is very similar to the show as well and there’s a good amount of writing to keep the story flowing quickly.

In between parts of Mr. Poopybutthole’s comic, there’s also some quick four-page comics of Rick with the illustration style being closer to the show with the sharp edges. Morty has a paper to write but no internet at home so Rick takes him to a world of wacky nature to give him a real experience that ends with him being swallowed by a large pink animal, Rick wakes up in Jerry’s car while he’s on his way to get ice-cream so he takes Jerry for space ice-cream and he drops the last cone, Rick goes clothes shopping for Morty with Beth and they run into a monster that Beth has to save Jerry from and Rick finds Jerry coming home from a baking class with cupcakes he decorated with the family’s faces on them. All of these little comics are entertaining and ooze Rick’s sarcastic attitude.

Favourite Quotes…

- “Oooooh-wee, Summer, you’re a reeeal friend!”
- “Mr. Poopybutthole, I love you!”
- “My buns sure are toasty from sitting on that lamp, ooooh boy.”
- “Mr. Poopybutthole is alive and brainwashed by some ginger heathen!”

" 4 stars for the "Meanwhile" interludes. " said.

" A great addition to the Rick and Morty canon, complete with Mr. Poopybutthole's backstory! Nice, quick and fun read. " said.

"Not a bad continuation of the show. And more Mr. Poopybutthole is a good thing. The story focuses on Summer and Mr. Poopybutthole as he returns to his home dimension with short backup stories featuring Rick. My one complaint is that everyone looks like they are from Beevis and Butthead. Comic books can typically take liberties with the art unless you're based on a cartoon. Then I want the art to look like the cartoon.

Received an advance copy from Oni Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"An animated TV show comes to print with a main character named Mr. Poopybutthole seeking the help of a redhead named Summer Smith (because everything’s better with alliteration).
Even though I’ve never seen this, it doesn’t require a lot of background. Mr. Poopybutthole is well aware of what he is—at one point he shouts, “I’m a changed butthole!”—and speaks with a Suthin’ accent. He likes to say “Ooo-wee!” On the other hand, he has an inflated sense of self, with lines like, “I had to put all this charisma and flair to good use.” I already felt sorry for Summer at the start, but it only gets worse and worse for her, because we all know redheads are never allowed to win.
*Team High Five!* Space ice cream!
This would no doubt have been better with previous familiarity with the TV series, especially toward the end when family jealousies erupt. It’s all pretty silly, but that kinda works to its advantage. It was okay, but nothing I’d go out of my way for.
A few pages of creator bios at the end.
