Rick and Morty and Dungeons & Dragons, two of the hottest properties in geek culture, are coming together in a comic crossover miniseries launching in August.  The four-issue series will be written by Patrick Rothfuss, who wrote The Kingkiller Chronicles fantasy novel series; and Jim Zub, who’s been writing Dungeons & Dragons comics for IDW Publishing.  Art will be by Troy Little, who adapted Hunter Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for Top shelf.

In the story, Morty will seek help from Rick in learning D&D, which all the cool kids at school are playing (never thought we’d write those words).  As a result, Rick, Morty, and the Smith family find themselves on an epic quest.

All four issues will have variant covers, including character sheets.
