The Autumnlands’ Benjamin Dewey Joins Rick And Morty One-Shot As Guest Artist

by Hannah Means Shannon

Oni Press has announced that stellar artist Benjamin Dewey of The Autumnlands and I Was A Cat will be joining their Rick and Morty comic as a guest artist on a one-shot for issue #30.

Dewey is a Portland, Oregon-based artist best known for his watercolor and illustration techniques, but also for his sense of nuance and humor.

In issue #30, he’ll be bringing those skills to a tale of Beth Smith, “overworked, under-appreciated, and probably slightly drunk”. But she still saves (horse) lives every day! That is, until her life is changed in one simple moment…

Rick and Morty #30, based on Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s Adult Swim animated series, is written by Eisner Award-nominee Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rock Candy Mountain), with additional art by Marc Ellerby.

Retail cover will be illustrated by series artist CJ Cannon with Katy Farina and an alternate cover illustrated by animation artist Julieta Colás.

Rick and Morty #30 will be available for purchase at comic shops on September 27, 2017. You can check out Dewey’s take on Rick and Morty then!
