As you are no doubt aware, cult classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K for short) is back. After an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign, show creator Joel Hodgson has wrangled a new cast (including Jonah Ray, Felicia Day, Patton Oswalt, among others) and secured the show to broadcast on Netflix starting April 14.

Well, into every new show, a little transmedia must fall. In February, Dark Horse Comics announced that they would be partnering with the rebooted show for a new comic series, and various related products. “I first encountered the show in 1992,” says Dark Horse’s vice president of publishing Randy Stradley in the announcement, “and immediately fell in love with both the concept and the characters. I began inquiring about the license in 1993, and now — a mere 24 years later — we have Comics Sign!”

Stay tuned to Dark Horse Comics for more information about that partnership, and check out MST3K’s official site for more information about the show.
