You're in for quite the treat, yes, I ... wait a minute, I
didn't know they made Photo-Novelizations of MST3K! This changes
everything!

Had to think that over for a second. Comic books. Why not?

Yep, two of the good ones, especially Beginning of the End, IMO.
Catalina Caper was suitably goofy, but I don't know what got into the
guys, commenting on Little Richard's "evident" drug use throughout the
move (the comments were throughout the movie is what I meant). They
obviously respect his work, and rightly so, so I was surprised that, in
spite of his great performance here, they still kept up the snide
comments. Have fun!

With the caveat that it's been a while since I've seen "Catalina Caper"
-- I don't remember there being "Little Richard on drugs" comments
occurring literally throughout the movie, just perhaps a couple of
"hopped up on goofballs" comments while he's actually on screen.

The Little Richard-related riffs I do remember vividly are "ladies and
gentlemen, the only genuine talent in this film" and the in-character
"That was great. Now leave -- out the back."

Actually, I recall, back when the big cancellation came down,
there was some talk about maybe doing an MST3K comic book, where the
silhouettes of the Brains would be superimposed on some previous,
probably public domain, comic book. I don't recall that anything did
come of it, but a couple of the MiSTings of David Gonterman works had
that format and showed it's possible to have that much visually going
on and still be readable.

Also, heck, all the *other* crazy impossible schemes for keeping
MST3K going [1] floated in the summer of 1999 came true, so why not
this one?


[1] Apart from the one where they're a bunch of animated kids
who travel around solving mysteries and helping people.

Have you seen this, "MST3K" covers a Jack Chick comic, Dark Dungeons:
