Goodreads Synopsis: 
Dan Harmon & Justin Roiland’s hilarious hit Adult Swim animated show RICK & MORTY now has its own comic book series from Oni Press! Join degenerate superscientist Rick Sanchez as he embarks on all-new insane adventures with his awkward grandson Morty, his teenage granddaughter Summer, his veterinary surgeon daughter Beth, and his hapless son-in-law Jerry. In this issue: Part One of “The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street”! 
Note: Not recommended for young readers

I have never watched Rick and Morty but I have been hearing about it everywhere so I decided to give the comics a try. I have to admit it was pretty hilarious. Between the constant bickering of the main characters, the bad puns, and the sarcasm - I am sold! 

In the comic, Rick and Morty are playing the Intergalactic Stock Exchange and what could go wrong? Well, everything that's what. Morty is pulled into one of Rick's schemes and (I would assume this happens all too often) craziness ensues.

The characters in this comic are very funny. Rick is ridiculous and seems over cynical of the world while Morty is paranoid about everything Rick says. This definitely made for some laugh-out-loud kind of moments. It was enjoyable and made me laugh and sometimes that is just what you need. I will be reading the next one to see how the series continues.
