When one of RICK’S experiments on knowledge-absorption-via-osmosis goes horribly awry (and when don’t they), Rick and MORTY find themselves sucked into AVALONIA: SAD STORIES FOR BAD CHILDREN, an ancient, dusty tome full of fairy tales. And not the sanitized, Disney version – we’re talking old-school, Grimm-dark fairy tales. On their arrival in this strange new universe, the two are separated: Morty, trapped in an old tower, the princess in need of saving; Rick, the scholarly old wizard in the castle’s basement. With the help of SILKE, the cunning sorceress holding Morty prisoner, and MARIUS, the himbo knight tasked with his rescue, Rick and Morty must find their way back to each other – and to their own reality. But what they don’t know is that their arrival in Avalonia releases the EVIL STEP-WITCH, setting off a chain of events that will destroy the world – and the tome itself – while Rick and Morty are still in it! If they don’t take everything they know about fairy tales and subvert those very same expectations, they’re going to breathe their very last, weird breaths.

DEVILS RED BRIDE #1 (MR)
(W) Sebastian Girner (A) John Bivens (CA) Nathan Gooden, Tim Daniel
16th century Japan. The fates of warlords ebb and flow like tides of blood, none more than the Aragami Clan who follow their lord clad in the ‘Red Devil’ mask into every battle. But when Lord Aragami succumbs to illness, his daughter, the fierce Ketsuko, hatches a plot to save her people, no matter the cost…
Years later, as Ketsuko wanders the heaving battlefields of her ruined homeland, she discovers a chance to avenge the terrible wrong done to her clan, even if it means stepping back onto a road steeped in slaughter.
From writer Sebastin Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter!, Scales & Scoundrels) and artist John Bivens (Creature Feature, Spread) comes a blood-drenched love letter to Samurai fiction in a chilling tale of guilt, trauma, and vengeance.

GIGA #1
(W) Alex Paknadel (A) John Le (CA) Adam Gorham
Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as ‘Giga’ fought their bitter, centuries’ long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity’s new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.
From writer Alex Paknadel (Friendo, Turncoat, Incursion) and rising star John Le comes another Vault & White Noise partnership about what happens after the mechs stop fighting.
