Following last week’s season premiere, Rick and Morty are setting their sights a little bit higher than Mr. Nimbus. Regardless of Rick’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Mr. Nimbus, the titular duo are going after God himself. Adult Swim has released the cold opening from the second episode of episode 5, and the titular duo really do have plans to take out the Almighty. However, someone else may have plans of their own…
Additionally, Oni Press is releasing a Rick and Morty: Mr. Nimbus #1 one-shot comic book on Wednesday, September 22. Alex Firer and artist Ryan Lee will be the creative team for the issue that explores the origin of Rick’s nemesis. Here’s the official synopsis from Oni Press.
