Legendary Meltdown Comics to Host Signing with Show Creators

LOS ANGELES, CA April 2nd, 2015 – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today a signing for Rick and Morty #1 at Meltdown Comics with show creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon on April 12th at 5 pm.

This will be the first time the show creators sign the comic book adaptation of their hit adult swim show since the first issue’s release on April 1st, 2015. The signing will be hosted by Los Angeles’ mecca for all things comic book, comedy, podcasting and pop-culture related, Meltdown Comics. Dan Harmon’s wildly popular comedy podcast, Harmontown, is recorded on a regular basis in the store’s NerdMelt Showroom and will follow the comic book signing at 8 pm on April 12th.

Rick and Morty is created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys). After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures. The newly released comic from Oni Press based on Rick and Morty is written by Zac Gorman (Costume Quest, Magical Game Time), illustrated by CJ Cannon and colored by Ryan Hill (Terrible Lizard, Stumptown, Stringers).
