    This was such a mixed issue. It started off so badly I was really uncertain about it but by the end I was captivated. Interested to see how Rick solves this one.

    While much better than vol 1, with the coherent mostly linear story line it was hard to not be better. We learn more about Ricks early foray into D&D and the current family situation. It was a little sad to see Rick get a solo adventure while the rest of the family fights for their lives without his help. The resolution to the whole problem was uninspired though the plea for another D&D tie in was fun.

    When everyone on Earth suddenly becomes completely obsessed with D&D, it's up to Rick to find the responsible party. While this story follows a more traditional Rick and Morty format and tone, continuity errors paired with the absence of Rothfuss seem to make it weaker overall. ~~SPOILERS~~ "Painscape" is a sequel to "Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons" and it does its job effectively enough.

While this story follows a more traditional Rick and Morty format and tone, continuity errors paired with the absence of Rothfuss seem to make it weaker overall. ~~SPOILERS~~ "Painscape" is a sequel to "Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons" and it does its job effectively enough. Upon realizing that people are abnormally obsessed with D&D, Rick tracks down the culprit only to discover it's his discarded Bard, Bardrick. Somehow, Bardrick exists in the remains of one of Rick's old, unfinished campaigns and has gradually come into sentience, along with numerous other discarded characters, from Clerick to Barbarick. The D&D obsession stems from their reality leaking into Rick's reality. Why is this happening? No idea. It's never really explained. The original Rick and Morty Vs. D&D had Rick systematically hunting down a dimension which bore so a complete resemblance to D&D that it effectively became a real-life version of it. And the DM was a supernatural God-creature which inhabited said dimension. There's none of that here. Instead, the DM is Rick and so are all the adventurers. Why his adventure has decided to come to life is never really touched on. Which brings us to the antagonist of the piece, Bardrick. Bardrick was mentioned in the first D&D story, with Rick telling Morty that he originally played a Bard and then burned the character sheet because he had a terrible time. My first character was also a Bard; we started at level 1 and I also decided immediately never to play a Bard again, so the joke hits. And it even makes sense that Bardrick would be the antagonist. But in this version, it clearly shows Rick rolling far too low for the Charisma stat then immediately throwing the character away. So his hatred of Bards doesn't really make sense. He never even had to actually play one. Like the TV show, Painscape uses an A-Plot/B-Plot format. While Rick dicks around in his campaign, the Smith family attempts to hold off the onslaught of D&D nonsense as it becomes more and more prominent in their world. The action scenes are pretty cool and there's some good jokes about Expectation Vs. Reality, but this ends up basically being filler. The Smith family (along with everyone else) is killed by a demon horde. Bardrick becomes king of reality. Rick also becomes king of the game world by min-maxing the shit out of himself, spreading his stats across 4 classes, and collecting every piece of loot available in his unfinished campaign. When he's bored of the world, he uses a magic wishing ring he got as loot to return to reality. Then uses his second wish to hit the reset button and return the world to sanity. Rick learns the lesson he learned in the first story, but in a bigger way. When the Smith family settles down to play Morty's new campaign, Rick wants to make a fun nonsense character like all the other members of the family, rather than making some OP juggernaut. The deconstructive elements of this story combined with the prominence of Rick's nihilism and indifference to his family's suffering make for a comic that bears a much stronger resemblance to the TV show than its predecessor, but the storytelling itself is much weaker with continuity errors and loose threads left dangling all over the place. I still liked this comic and I'd definitely read a 3rd one (which is teased in the last panel).

    I couldn't read this without comparing it to R&M vs D&D I. This one instead of teaching you about D&D is a story about what happens to all of the characters that you never played or abandoned. The story partially takes place in a setting that Rick started creating when he was younger and the villains are his abandoned characters. Honestly, the main disappointment for me was that Jerry doesn't continue to be his cool half-elf Wizard that he was in at the end of Part I. And Rick is the Hero which c I couldn't read this without comparing it to R&M vs D&D I.

    Really great, I liked it more than the first volume. I loved the idea of the world becoming obsessed with DnD, all the jokes about shops and such being DnD themed got a good chuckle out of me. The way that DnD rules were incorporated into the story was pretty great too, just a solid mini-series with some good jokes.

    Waayyyy better than the first, really enjoyed it. Instead of being sent to a world of dnd, a virus of dnd comes to them (along with Rick's garbage characters). I just found the world being addicted to dnd to be amazingly fun, especially the merchandising of it! Haha

    Same quality as the previous one, the idea that Rick's abandoned characters function just like his other multiverse selves is really clever.

    This was ok. It seemed like an unnecessary sequel. Maybe they will make a third that will be better. The story is boring and lacks sustenance. I would not recommend.

    Worthwhile for fans Not as hilarious as the first instalment, but still fun enough if you live at the centre of that curious venn diagram between D&D and Rick & Morty fandom.

    Oh yeah b*****s! It’s on! F**k, it’s game time! Rick & Morty are Back and they’re taking on Dungeons & Dragons a second time! The blockbuster comic mini-series returns with a sequel! And it just doesn’t get any more f****d up than this. Seriously though .... Wait, how can you take anything in the pages seriously? If you are, you’re dummer than Morty.... And you probably deserve to get chased down and turned into goblin fodder. Two more tons of fun with this inspired sequel that warps as quickly Oh yeah b*****s! It’s on! F**k, it’s game time!

Two more tons of fun with this inspired sequel that warps as quickly as it blows the mind. Maybe quicker? I’m a fan of Rick & Morty. I’m a fan of D&D. And I’m a fan of Planescape. It’s like a dark, twisty, unholy trinity. Silly, irreverent and filled with meta-humor, it truly is two tons of fun. Prepare to get Ricked-up.

    I like where this story is going. Always love it when a virus takes over without people noticing it.
