The riffing hilarity loved by fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 since 1988 is taking on a whole new medium, according to Dark Horse Comics.
Retooled for comics by TV series creator Joel Hodgson, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Comic finds Satellite of Love-rs Jonah Heston, Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo and Gypsy thrust into the 2-D world of public domain comics, with riffing them as their only defense.
“But trust us,” says Dark Horse’s announcement, “these comics have it coming.”
The MST3K comic features a variant cover by longtime MST3K DVD artist Steve Vance among others, and is meant as a companion to your favorite original episodes and the hit Netflix reboot.
