The First appearance of Rick and Morty in Comics

When Oni Press’s Rick and Morty #1 started to heat up people were noticing the grading companies were not classifying the first printing of the book as the first appearance of the characters. Well thanks to Negan Grimes on CBSI we now know why.

Rick and Morty first appeared in comics in the book The Good Morty. The Good Morty is a comic in the style of a Chick Tract. Chick Tracts, created by Jack Chick, are short evangelical gospel comic books that began circulation in 1974 (as free religious pamphlets) and can still be found today. The Good Morty first appeared in Season 1 of the Rick and Morty series.

The Good Morty was distributed in the first editions of the Rick and Morty season 1 Blu-ray from 2014. 250 of these were inserted signed by Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. I am unsure how many of these were printed – however, they are only found in the first edition blurays – there are several editions of the season 1 bluray and packages are almost identical. So this will prove to be a difficult item to track down.


Thanks again to Negan Grimes and CBSI.

Rick and Morty is a cartoon network show with a cult following, created by Dan Harmon (Community). Rick and Morty’s comic book from Oni Press has been a sell-out success, being released on April 1, 2015 both issue #1 and #2 have sold out at Diamond and these two books seem to be trending upwards.

In the past ten days Rick and Morty #1 First print has been selling anywhere from $6 to $20! 
In the past few days Rick and Morty #2 has been selling for upwards of $20!
The Rick and Morty #1 variants are also doing crazy things – with the Emerald City Comic Con Variant being the clear winner – with an average sale price of $25.

THESE are two books you should be looking for and holding onto!
