Comic book company, Dark Horse, announced this week it formed a partnership with Kickstarter success and popular SciFi series, Mystery Science Theater 3000. As previously reported, Hodgson launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter in 2015 with a mission to raise as much funds as he could to reboot Mystery Science Theater 3000. The original $2 million campaign goal would fund three full-length episodes, and $5.5 million would fund a season of 12 episodes. By the end of the funding round, the project secured $5,764,229 from 48,270 backers.
“We are excited to announce a new partnership with the popular entertainment brand and cult-hit comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), which is slated to include a brand-new comic series as well as a variety of Dark Horse–designed products. Mystery Science Theater 3000 follows the motley crew of a human host and his two robot sidekicks aboard the Satellite of Love. The hapless host, trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space, is forced to watch some of the most outrageously unfortunate B movies ever created. To keep sane, he’s built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery.”
