Mystery Science Theater 3000 is getting a comic book series!

Whats better than the crew of Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffing on bad movies? Why the crew riffing on bad comics of course! All courtesy of Dark Horse comics!

Jonah, Tom Servo, Crow T. Robot, Gypsy, and the rest of the crew bringing Mystery Science Theater 3000 to the world of comics, and it is all thanks to the BUBBULAT-R, a device that can essentially put you into your favorite comic. As we learn in this preview though, it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

In fact, it can make you a bit…well crazy, though to be fair Max wasn’t really all there to begin with. Once you feed your favorite comic into the BUBBULAT-R it will translate the comic into bubbles, surrounding the patient and letting him interact with that world. Just a word of note though, stay away from giraffes…and cute bunnies evidently.

The official description for the series can be found below.

“The riffing hilarity loved by fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 since 1988 is taking on a whole new medium…comics! Created for comics by series creator Joel Hodgson, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Comic finds Jonah Heston, Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo, and Gypsy thrust into the 2-D world of public domain comics, with riffing as their only defense! But trust us, these comics have it coming.

Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Comic #1 lands on shelves on September 9, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.

New episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are now streaming on Netflix. But if you want to see the older episodes tune in to PLUTO, another fine streaming site.
