Oni Press is [uncontrollably excited]to announce two very special variant covers by Julieta Colás for the release of Rick and Morty™ #50, featuring series creators and executive producers, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
Artist Julieta Colás has been illustrating the trade paperback variant covers for Oni Press’s Rick and Morty™ collections, Rick and Morty™: Lil’ Poopy Superstar, and Rick and Morty™: Pocket Like You Stole It, which are exclusively sold at conventions as well as the Oni Press Shopify storefront. Placed over a simplistic tan backdrop, Julieta’s headshot portraits carefully and playfully craft the biology of different Rick and Morty™ characters, exposing them from the inside out.
Oni Press began the celebration of Rick and Morty™ #50 in February. Comicon.com revealed the original Cover A by Marc Ellerby and solicit text announcing the super oversized 48-page MORTY’S MINDBLOWERS issue, which features the return of Rick and Morty™ comics creators Kyle Starks, Marc Ellerby, Andrew Maclean, Tini Howard, Jarrett Williams, Sarah Graley, Josh Trujillo, Rii Abrego, Benjamin Dewey, and Sarah Stern. Subsequently, two connecting covers by comic artist Matt Horak (Spider-Man, Deadpool, Punisher), were revealed on Comicbook.com, and limited reprints of the first five issues with five connecting collectible covers by Marc Ellerby and Sarah Stern were revealed on Paste. Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, who is also the voice of Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith, wrote the introduction to Rick and Morty™ #50. A very special limited run of Rick and Morty™ Lenticular #1 was also announced, which will be available on the Oni Press Shopify on May 29th.
Rick and Morty™ #50 goes on sale May 29th and is now available for preorder. These covers will be revealed upon the release date.
