Dark Horse is doing MST3K Comic books!

The comic might be OK but I am more interested in the merch they make.

Like if we don't get something like this for the SOL then they don't know what they are doing.

Comic book written by original MST3K writing staffers without any direct MST3K tie in = got my interest.
MST3K comic somehow involving MST3K characters and plots = will give it a shot, but expect 'Bots Are Back' levels of awfulness.
MST3K models/toys = take m money.

I seem to remember Trace Belleau was going to try something like that back in the day. It's a neat concept.

That's what I'm hoping for.  C'mon, Hank Fletcher comics.  Also, if Seanbaby is a writer, I would not complain.

His style doesn't mesh well with the MST aesthetic, but that would be hilarious. :^)
