Rick and Morty is a comic series published by Oni Press, based on the TV series and written by Zac Gorman. Each issue includes a main story (usually unnamed) as well as a back-up comic. The first two volumes of the comic series comic stars a Rick and Morty from an alternate dimension than their TV counterparts (Dimension C-132), in order to remove worries about continuity with the original show and to give more free reign to the writers. From the third volume onward, the series switched focus to portraying the off-screen adventures of the Rick and Morty of the television series, with the events of certain episodes from the series being directly referenced and the events of comic arc "A Tale of Two Jerries" being alluded to in Tales From the Citadel with a reference to Doofus Jerry.
The comic series ended on March 25, 2020, with the release of the 60th issue.
|1||Rick decides to put Jerry to shame by making a ridiculous amount of money with a clueless Morty's help. The two use a device which merges dimensions to successfully pull off the scheme, but they are tracked by a "time detective" named Professor Tock; he convinces a distraught Jerry to give them up to the Time Police, and, after a lengthy standoff, Rick and Morty are arrested.||April 1, 2015|
|2||Sentenced to life in the horrifying Clackspire Labyrinth, Rick and Morty wander the seemingly endless maze, which Rick himself built and stocked with provisions, in the event he was ever imprisoned within his creation. After a long span of time, while being pursued by a monster, Rick opens a panel in a wall, leading them to a room holding a portal machine. As the portal has only enough power to transport one person, Rick shoves Morty through it, trapping himself in the maze. Meanwhile, Jerry is exiled to the basement for incriminating both Rick and Morty, but he knocks over a glass jar and releases an alien creature into the house.||May 13, 2015|
|3||The issue continues from the events of the previous installment, in which Rick condemned himself to the Clackspire Labyrinth to save Morty, and Jerry moving into the basement to escape Beth's fury, knocked over a glass containment unit belonging to Rick. Freed from the now-broken containment unit, its occupant, a Class-Two clonerbeast, infiltrates the Smith house in Rick's absence, creating confusion and threatening to destroy the family.||June 17, 2015|
|4||Rick takes Morty to a planet on which he has built a plantation, taken in a large number of war refugees, and invited them to work for him. Rick asks Morty to infiltrate the workers' camp and determine whether or not they are plotting to revolt against him. When Morty does join the workers, gaining the trust of a girl named Daphna, he discovers that Rick himself started the war which drove the refugees to his planet, to the end that he might create an influx of cheap labor. The revelation leads Morty to halfheartedly join the workers' riot, but as events begin to play out, he regrets not taking his side.||July 22, 2015|

|9||The adventure continues as Rick, Morty and Summer come face to face with the despotic, evil Morty of the Rickless Dimension!

They even bring Summer, even though she won't stop crying about having her heart broken or whatever.

|17||Rick's old drinking buddy has been dethroned and imprisoned by the new queen that Rick told him not to marry.
