The last season of Rick and Morty was full of all kinds of glorious madness, and the ongoing line of comics based on the series is about to dive back into some of that madness with a new series of one-shot comics.

A new group of comics from Oni Press (under the banner of Rick and Morty Presents), will focus on the animated show's side characters, with issues coming that will feature such characters as Krombopulos "just love killing" Michael (written by Mallory Ortberg) from Season 2, as well as the already legendary duo of Pickle Rick and Jaguar (written by Delilah Dawson). The first issue of the new series will focus on last season's group of adventures-lovers known as The Vindicators, and today we have an exclusive look at their new comic.

Rick and Morty Presents: The Vindicators! is written by J. Torres (Teen Titans Go!), and illustrated by CJ Cannon, who will also illustrate the other issues in the series. The comic will feature previously unseen adventures from the superhero team as they travel through time and space. Rick Sanchez may hate this team (and showed us as much), but their adventures should prove to be highly entertaining. 

The exclusive cover by Jen Bartel, which will be featured at Emerald City Comic Con, can be seen on the right.

Vindicators team member Supernova (voiced by Gillian Jacobs in the show) features solo there, but here's a look at the official cover (as well as a variant by Caitlin Rose Boyle), that shows off the entire team in their glory:

Based on the above covers, it looks like we're in for a lot of fun with Vance Maximus, Alan Rails, and possibly even Scary Terry. 

What will the comic itself entail? Will it show one of Rick's previous encounters with the group that he decided to test to their breaking point last season? Take a look at our gallery below, which features the new title's first five pages.

The full issue will be released on March 7, with the rest of the series coming in June, September, and November of this year. Though the wait for Rick and Morty Season 4 may be harder than trying to procure a certain Mulan dipping sauce, these comics should satisfy us until the subversively disturbing show returns. Wub-a-lub-a...you know the rest.
