" Fun enough to read in one sitting, and helps to fill the void between seasons. " said.

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

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

" 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.

"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.

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.

"I would like to start out by saying how hyped up I am that I was available to snag this book in 3 parts on Netgalley, because I am a huuuuge Rick and Morty fan. This just might fill the void until season 3 comes out.

I was especially looking forward to picking this title up since it focuses more on Summer, who is a fun, yet underdeveloped character.

The story begins with Mr. Poopybutthole enlisting Summer's help for a very important mission across space, after the events of Total Rickall. Summer agrees to assist with his mission, and ventures within a portal alongside Mr. Poopybutthole, where his secret is revealed. Inter-dimensional shenanigans ensue, everywhere from space-gun fights to spacejail.

In between each chapter is a short 'filler' story featuring Rick with Morty, Jerry, or Beth. The small fillers were a nice reprieve from the main story that didn't feel forced on the reader.

There really isn't too much to add on to the general plot. It felt like I was reading the stills of an episode of Rick and Morty. The main story read solidly, but still seemed like it was missing something that gives the show its charm. I was glad to see Summer get her own development, not only with Mr. Poopybutthole, but with Rick as well. My only concern I had was that the story felt a little bit loose at some points in the narrative, though as a whole, it came together well enough.

If you're looking for some more of the Rick and Morty canon to put in your brain, do yourself a favor and pick up this book.


Note: I recieved this copy for free on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"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!”
