The adult humor was neutered, not at all like a Rick and Morty cartoon. "But wait! That's not all!"
I guess it would be fine for a Rick and Morty fan who doesn't know much about role play tabletop games. It might sell them on 5e and thats a pretty easy intro to tabletop gaming, i guess. But anyone already familiar will read this and feel like it's mansplaining RPGs.
The beauty of a Rick and Morty story is knowing it will take a completely unexpected turn. But not this. I paid nearly $15 for a commercial from word one to the extremely predictable, telegraphed conclusion.
Overall, I found this derivative and tone deaf to the target audience. Most people who would buy this would already know at least a little bit about DnD. Explaining to them how the game works through boring, unfunny exposition is not necessary. And if they DON'T know whats going on, a quick websearch would explain it far better than this comic.
I recommend this story whole-heartedly. It flawlessly nails everything the fans on either side want.
My hopes are that Rick and Morty invade another beloved franchise, and then bestow upon that tale the love and care with which this one was written.
Buy this. You’ll love it. The world needs more.
Do you like DnD? Do you like Rick & Morty? Do you like comics?
Of course you do, or you would have never seen this in your recommendation list.
Its a fun self-contained story that one could see as a storyboard for an episode of the show. If this popped up in any feed for you, buy it, the overlords know you'll love it!

Me? I’ve never really taken any interest in Rick&Morty, but I played D&D since the very first Chainmail/Whitebox through to 3.5 .... and there were enough D&D references to keep me interested. 4* from me, 3* would have felt a bit mean.
I particularly enjoyed the 3rd and 4th parts (the 1st and 2nd not so much) and all the ‘bonus’ illustrations at the end.
The book is split into four episodes each of which is stands alone well but still feeds into the overall story. It's also wonderfully illustrated with the cameos from D&D hall of famers a particular highlight for me.
You may be wondering if like D&D to enjoy it and to that I'd answer you don't, but it helps. If you're a fan of the show you'll enjoy it regardless but if you're not in to D&D you will miss some references and in jokes.
The best thing about Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons is that it feels just like an episode of the show. Funny, irreverent and packed with some superb illustrations and a smattering of D&D banter it's and well worth a look.
Usual rick n morty humour, i find the comics to be a little less appealing than the tv show thats just prefrence. All round a fun read
