    Seems like it might be difficult to lay things out without umpteen speech bubbles mucking things up. Well, I’ll give it a shot!

    So, if it’s Dark Horse, will it get a cheap 90’s film version, like The Mask, Mystery Men or Dr. Giggles?

    An MST3K comic book finally? I wonder if this means we’ll see the MST3K CD-ROM? I kid, I kid. But we will be seeing the MST3K on Ice show, right?

    Actually, that’s quite a clever joke. Dark Horse took advantage of the comic movie boom started by 1989’s Batman to get several of its comic properties turned into films, many of them cheaply made (or at least cheap looking, though The Mask was quite well received for its expensive CGI at the time). Dr. Giggles, a common MST3K riff in the early 90s, received a comic adaptation from Dark Horse. The joke he’s making is that MST3K already had a cheap 90s film made, they were just missing a Dark Horse comic to adapt from, and now, 22 years later, that mistake has been corrected.

    Wait, wasn’t Dr. Giggles based ON a William-Gaines-esque Dark Horse horror-comic homage?
    And then, of course, there was Disney’s “The Rocketeer”, Jamie Lee Curtis fighting alien robots in “Virus”, Jean-Claude van Damme beating up Ron Silver in “Timecop”, and they wanted to do their “Aliens vs. Predator” comic movie themselves, but that would mean going up against Fox’s Mighty Franchises.
