Rick and Morty DVD!!!

It has finally arrived! The anticipated Rick and Morty complete season 1 DVD came out on Wednesday with plenty of extras and commentaries from Matt Groenig, Pen Ward, Al Jean and many more. I spent a couple weeks concepting and executing the packaging after a few rounds of conversations with Justin Roiland and the folks over at Adult Swim and couldn't be happier with the outcome. The idea was to have the portal in the same exact position on the front and back of the slipcase seeing Rick and Morty leaving the living room during another fickle family fight on the back,  travelling to the front cover with Rick showing Morty the freedom of the universe, so it seems like a tangible portal that R and M have travelled through in your hands. Once the slipcase is taken off it reveals the amaray art of something commonly seen in the show "Oh shit Morty, runnnnn!!!". I tried to include the most influential characters seen in season 1 creating a 'Wheres waldo' effect treasure hunt of the Rick and Morty universe. The top version is poster art created in conjunction with the DVD but the poster wasn't part of the plan for the DVD release unfortunately. Hopefully soon they will add it to the official merchandise train. Enjoy!
