"We'll send them cheesy comics, the worst we can find . . . ."

Okay, so maybe these aren't the cheesiest comics around--far from it, in fact.  We have many great comics from around Keenspot and Keenspace, not to mention a few independants as well.  All in all, thirty-one comics have signed up for this event, by artists from all over the world.  Be sure to read them all!

The post that started it all:

"After reading around Keenspot and Keenspace, I've noticed that MANY MANY MANY comic strips have paid small tributes to the best cow-town-puppet show this side of Sifl and Olly: Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K). You know; the show with the guy and two robots who sit in front of horrible B-movies and make fun of 'em? It used to be on Comedy Central, but moved to the Sci-Fi Channel? Huh???

"Well, many cartoonists claim that they are MSTies (Die-hard fans of the show). Everyone from Sporkman to Melonpool to Sluggy Freelance have somehow paid a little homage to this show.

"So what am I getting at? I propose a MSTing weekend, where everyone involved would have Mike (or Joel) and the 'bots riff on their comic. It can be an old comic from your archives, or it could be new. You could even have your comic characters parody, say, Manos: the Hands of Fate, and have the three make fun of it. As long as it has the silhouettes in it, it's good.

"MST is my all-time favorite show, and it's in danger of being dropped off of the Sci-Fi channel's schedule next year. Perhaps this event can raise the awareness of the show, extending it's life a little longer... or maybe not. In any event, it will be fun to do."
