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"!
The Wubba Lubba Dub Dub of Wall Street, Part One
At the dinner table, Jerry proposes that Morty get a job. Rick, of course, belittles Jerry's notion of job importance and enlists Morty to show Jerry that jobs are stupid by scamming the intergalactic stock exchange. He proposes the two use a device he has that predicts the future, which would allow them to make only the best, most lucrative decisions. The catch is that Morty's name has to be used on all the forms, as Rick is apparently banned from the stock exchange building.
At the stock exchange building, Rick and Morty run into Professor Tock, the leader of the Time Police. Professor Tock tries to weasel Rick's intentions out of him while inferring that he may already know. Rick flies off the handle and calls time travel garbage and storms off to register Morty. Morty kind of liked Professor Tock and Rick gets nervous and shakes Morty down for a wire. Finding none, the two register Morty for intergalactic stock trading.
A short time later, Rick and Morty have made billions of dollars and are in the process of building a ten million dollar expansion on the family home. This annoys Jerry, despite being the reason that Morty went on with Rick's idea of gaming the intergalactic stock exchange. Professor Tock approaches Jerry with a plan to stop Rick and Morty; Jerry sells his family out instantly.
In Morty's office, Morty informs Rick that his services are no longer required, as it's Morty's name on the documents. Before getting kicked out of the office, Rick explains that his device doesn't look into the future, as time travel is garbage. The device merges timelines in which their investments are successful, thereby erasing from existence billions of people. This freaks Morty out, as does a raid by the Time Police. Rick and Morty put up a fight, but they are eventually subdued and arrested by Professor Tock and featured on the evening news.
Summer Spectacular, Part One
In a high rise tower "in the not-so-distant future", two thugs hold hostages. Summer bursts in dressed in combat-black and takes out the thugs. She carries a man out of the building as it explodes.
In bed, the man asks Summer how she got one of her many scars, clearly hoping to hear some exotic story of mystery and intrigue. Flashback to the present day, Summer eats pizza in the bathroom while using a hair straightener. She burns her arm, making the story of her scar not worth telling.
