We’re happy to announce that we will be hosting a signing for the latest issue and Volume 1 of Rick and Morty with Marc Ellerby! The signing will be from 1-2pm on Saturday 27th February.
Marc Ellerby has long been a Gosh favorite for his small press work, especially Chloe Noonan, a tongue-in-cheek story of a young Daria-esque college girl just trying to keep monsters at bay and Ellerbisms, a self-depreciating yet heartwarming diary comic following the highs and lows of a significant relationship. He is an important voice in the British comics community as one of the minds behind the former small press collective, Great Beast. Ellerby can currently be seen drawing for series like Doctor Who and The Regular Show.
Rick and Morty, following the misadventures of Rick, a mad scientist, and his grandson Morty, has become a cult hit, and is definitely one of our favorite Adult Swim shows. The show was co-created by Dan Harmon (the meta-genius behind Community), so you know anything it’s going to be a source of delight, and to have it as a comic is the cherry on top. Zac Gorman is writing the comic series, and Marc on the art is a perfect match for a series of stories where anything can happen.
So come get Volume 1, featuring various short stories drawn by Ellerby, and #11, the first full issue drawn by him, with Rick taking Morty to a universe where he is able to simulate going through High School in a single day.
