Mystery Science Theater 3000 is used to taking on the world of movies in hilarious fashion, but thanks to Dark Horse the crew finds themselves immersed in a whole new world…the world of comics.
The beloved franchise is coming to comics in Dark Horse’s brand new (and aptly titled) series Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Comic. The new comic series is being helmed by original Mystery Science Theater host Joel Hodgson, who last hosted the show back in season five. All the beloved characters will be right alongside him as Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo, and Gypsy take to dissecting some of the best comics the public domain has to offer.The six-part series will launch with two covers. The main cover is drawn by Todd Nauck, while the variant cover features the work of Steve Vance, who also created the covers for Shout! Factory’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVD and Blu-ray collections. You can get your first look at the new covers below.
