Comic Book Company Dark Horse Announces Partnership With Kickstarter-Funded “Mystery Science Theater 3000”

Comic book company, Dark Horse, announced this week it formed a partnership with Kickstarter success and popular SciFi series, Mystery Science Theater 3000As 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. 

While sharing details about the new partnership, Dark Horse stated:

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.”

Dark Horse’s VP of publishing, Randy Stradley, added:
“I first encountered the show in 1992, and immediately fell in love with both the concept and the characters,” said Stradley. “I began inquiring about the license in 1993, and now—a mere twenty-four years later—we have Comics Sign!”

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is set to premiere on Netflix later this year.
