Rick is almost an archetypal rebel from the cyberpunk universe, so it is humorous in the comic that the cyberpunk universe is a Rickless one. To them cyberpunk was not a revolution or alien philosophy invading science fiction, but rather just another flavor of science fiction. It is an archetypal world-building novel, complete with appendices excerpting imaginary books, reports and essays.
