The stars of the hit [adult swim] show continue their first epic comic book adventure in Part Two of "The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street"! Trapped in a winding labyrinth of Rick's own design, Morty desperately searches for an escape as Rick desperately searches for his hidden cache of booze. Meanwhile, the rest of the family tries to figure out what to do with Morty's now-vacant room, not to mention the weird alien Jerry accidentally released from Rick's lab
Note: Not recommended for young readers.
I really enjoyed this issue, more than the first in fact. 

{Issue #1 Spoilers Ahead...} 

Rick and Morty have been taken away for their misdeeds fiddling with the exchange and are on trial in space. Inevitably they are sentenced to imprisonment in a labyrinth. As all things seem to go in this series - Rick is up to something and Morty is more-or-less along for the ride. 

What I liked most about this issues was the Rick seemed to really care... that is a lot of character development in one comic - I can't wait to see where this goes next.

Also - the Summer episodes are hilarious - they seem so random and I have laughed out loud at the first one (Issue #1) and now this one. I have no idea what they are about but they do make me giggle.
