Someone remind me to make an MST3K category for my site.

Okay, I was planning on this being a two-post week, but I find myself having to report on the only big comic news to come out in the last few days. I am, of course, talking about the reveal of the covers for the first issue of Dark Horse’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 series.

The regular cover, by Todd Nauck, which has a real Mad Magazine vibe to it:

The variant, by regular contributor to the MST3K box sets Steve Vance, featuring Tom Servo’s very disturbing man-hands:

I have no idea what ratio that variant will be available in…1 in 10? 1 in 100? 1 in 1000? Well, I hope my customers are ready for 1,000 copies of the MST3K comic, because I’m gonna need both versions. Anyway, read more about it at this article here.

As I assumed back in ye olden tymes, the comics will indeed be the Satellite of Love crew riffing over old comics (as was the original plan waaaaay back even farther when Acclaim Comics intended to do their own MST funnybooks). I’ve been waiting for a MST3K comic book for a very long time, and I’m very glad it’s almost here.

Oh, and I guess there’s some big to-do about Vertigo this week as well. I mean, in much less important news.

    Sure this might be good but now I want to read Tom Servo, Teen Reporter

    Random thought: back at the time of the first Valiant reboot (under Acclaim), their in-house ads promised an MST3K comic riffing on old Dell/Gold Key material. It never came out, but I wonder if any material was ever produced and if Dark Horse may be able to release it.
