The spice must flow, Morty, for he is Padishah Rick now.

Before Rick and Morty returns to TV screens sometime next year, fans looking for a fix of multiversal shenanigans will get not one, but three cinematic spoofs in comic book form courtesy of Oni Press. Each one shot in the Rick & Morty Presents series will have a different creative team, and each will tackle a different sci-fi movie homage, kicking off with Hericktics of Rick by writers Amy Chu and Alexander Chang, artist Sarah Stern, and letterer crank!, which is… well, it’s literally just Dune.

The comic will see Rick uncover a highly valuable, perhaps spicy, mysterious substance on the planet “Arrickis,” only to find himself and Morty embroiled in the world’s politics, dire religious prophecies, and conflicts with its native societies. Expect at least one gross-out sandworm joke, surely. Joining Hericktics of Rick will be two more parodies inspired by Logan’s Run and Star Wars. The first, from Ivan Cohen, Puste, and Leonardo Ito, with the returning crank! on letters, is called Morty’s Run, and sees the young boy faced with the nightmare of having to go to summer camp. After turning to Rick for help getting out of it, he finds himself instead on the run on an alien world ruled by four-eyed 13-year-olds.
