RICK SANCHEZ . . . IN LOVE?! LET’S (NOT) GET TOGETHER IN AN ALL-NEW, DIMENSION-HOPPING JOYRIDE FROM CO-WRITERS JOSH TRUJILLO (Blue Beetle) AND RYAN LITTLE (Disney+’s What If?) AND ARTIST JARRETT WILLIAMS (Super Pro K.O.)! Rick receives a distress signal from his college sweetheart, who was kidnapped by interdimensional villains obsessed with collecting the fabled Dream Balls. Rick, Morty, and Jerry set out to recover the mysterious Dream Balls and harness their power to save his former paramore.

Hold on to your portal guns, folks, because “Rick and Morty: Kingdom Balls #1” is the crossover event you didn’t know you needed until it hit you like a Plumbus at a Blips and Chitz prize counter! Illustrated by the talented Jarrett Williams, with cover art that’ll make you scream “Schwifty!” by Jarrett Williams and Hank Jones, this comic is a visual feast for the eyes.

The dynamic writing duo of Josh Trujillo and Ryan Little take us on a dimension-hopping joyride that’s part love story, part epic quest, and all Rick Sanchez chaos. When Rick’s college sweetheart sends out an SOS from across the multiverse, it’s up to our favorite dysfunctional family to save the day. And let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to see Rick in a love-driven frenzy? It’s like watching a genius scientist with the emotional range of a teaspoon finally find his measuring cup.

As for the plot? Imagine if “Dragonball Z” and “Kingdom Hearts” had a baby, and that baby was raised by Rick and Morty. That’s “Kingdom Balls” for you. It’s got Dream Balls, interdimensional villains, and a quest that makes Frodo’s journey to Mordor look like a walk to the corner store. And Jerry’s there too, because… well, someone has to be the butt of the joke, right?

The Kingdom Hearts cover is the cherry on top of this multiverse sundae, and with Marvel writers at the helm, you know you’re in for a treat that’s part fan service, part original masterpiece. It’s like someone took all your favorite things, threw them in a blender, and served it up with a side of Szechuan sauce.

So, if you’re a fan of heartwarming tales of love and redemption, epic quests for mythical objects, or just want to see Rick Sanchez punch some interdimensional baddies in the face (who doesn’t?), then “Rick and Morty: Kingdom Balls #1” is the comic for you. It’s wacky, it’s heartfelt, and it’s got enough Easter eggs to keep you hunting till the next issue drops. Get your hands on it, or be that Jerry who missed out. No one wants to be a Jerry.

Rick and Morty: Kingdom Balls #1 is available on our weekly new comic book wall and can also be placed on your pull list.
