Dark Horse to produce comics based on Mystery Science Theater 3000

Mystery Science Theater 3000Dark Horse today announced a partnership with the Mystery Science Theater 3000 brand, which will result in a comic book series as well as “a variety of Dark Horse–designed products.”

In case you don’t enjoy great things, MST3K was a low-budget cult TV and online series and feature film that follows the motley crew of a human host and his two robot sidekicks Gypsy and Crow (as well as Cambot and Gypsy) aboard the Satellite of Love. The hapless host, trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space, was forced to watch some of the most outrageously unfortunate B movies ever created. To keep sane, he’s built his two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery.

MST3K co-creator Joel Hodgson recently started the MST3K Revival Kickstarter, resulting in a combined total of $6,364,229 allotted for new episodes and other licensed merchandise. Dark Horse is one of a number of licensees.

Dark Horse’s VP of publishing, Randy Stradley said he began inquiring about the Mystery Science Theater 3000 license in 1993, so he’s understandably overjoyed. “I first encountered the show in 1992, and immediately fell in love with both the concept and the characters,” he said in a statement. “Now—a mere twenty-four years later—we have Comics Sign!”
