'Rick and Morty" Lil' Poopy Superstar Vol. 1' by Marc Ellerby with art by Sarah Graley and Mildred Louis is my second graphic novel based on a series I'm not familiar with. I didn't mind the first one, but didn't care much for this one.
Summer Smith is jealous of her brother Morty and his relationship with his grandfather Rick. They have all the fun (or so Summer thinks). When she gets a chance to help out a strange alien named Mr. Poopybutthole, she takes it. What follows is a series of adventures where the reader doesn't know if the character wants to be found because he's famous, or found because he is the object of murderous rage. Summer gets to be a hero, but will that be enough to make her grandfather notice her?
The character's name is pretty dumb and the reader knows it because it is used over and over again, as some sort of blunt trauma joke. There are some things to be said about the nature of celebrity here, but they get buried in tasteless moronic humor. I was not impressed.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Oni Press, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
