Mystery Science Storybook FREE for Fans of MST3K & RiffTrax! Thanks for an AWESOME 2015!


--All MSTies and RiffTraxians, download your FREE COPY of Mystery Science Storybook here!--

--Also, ALL 18 Storybook Chapters are being published free on SRD.com this month!--

--Be sure to visit Patreon to help keep the comics coming!--

Hey everybody, Sugar Ray Dodge here, aka Dave Chadwick. I'm the author and illustrator of Mystery Science Storybook as well as the editor-in-chief of RiffWiki.net. I have something I'd like to say and I hope you'll endure the cheesiness of it until the end, because there's a fun prize there if you make it all the way through.

2015, frankly, has been the best year of my life since I left the U.S. Army 6 years ago, and it largely has to do with the creation of Mystery Science Storybook: Bedtime Tales Based on the Worst Movies Ever. For those of you who don't know, what I did was take movies that were featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax and drew my own parodies of them. Featured chapters included Manos: The Hands of Fate, Twilight & Harry Potter, Birdemic, Time Chasers, The Final Sacrifice, Hobgoblins, The Pumaman, Road House, This Island Earth and The Room, among others. I had an absolute blast doing it, but more importantly, it proved that there is a place in the world for crazy cartoon books based on crazy bad movies. That I was able to bring this into existence still astonishes me, because by all rights, something this absurd should not exist.

But none of it would have been possible without the support and encouragement of the fans of MST3K and RiffTrax. This community is hands-down the best fandom in the entire world. The outpouring of support I got for this project was overwhelming, and now I'd like to give something back. That is why from today until January 31st, 2016, Mystery Science Storybook will be available to download for free to all fans of MST3K and RiffTrax! Just follow this link to download your free DRM-free pdf and you're done! It's yours! No strings attached! You helped make it happen, you deserve it.

That being said, I am currently working on finishing the follow-up, Night of the Living Storybook, as well as ship the Kickstarter and Pre-Order rewards to everybody who supported it. If you'd like to help in this regard, please consider supporting the continuation ofthe series by donating on Patreon, which is a site that is like Kickstarter, only it supports ongoing projects. For me to continue and for the art and jokes to be their best, I gotta pay them bills. Even a donation of $2 per comic will be extremely helpful. Another great way to support the cause is to buy Night of the LivingStorybook, Part One: No Movie is Safe on the Amazon Kindle, which is only $2.99 for six brand new parodies. It would also be extremely helpful if I could get some more reviews on Amazon and Goodreads to prove that there is an audience hungry for more Storybook tales.

Thanks for everything, you guys. Don't forget to download your free copy of Mystery Science Storybook. It's yours, no strings attached. Again, thanks for helping make 2015 one of the best years of my entire life.

Just found your site! Thanks for the free download, I will definitely check it out. If it's as funny as it sounds, I will get more. Awesome to see how the fans continue to support both MST3K and RiffTrax. Been watching since the second season of MST3K and now enjoy going to every RiffTrax Live show. Nothing like being surrounded by people of your ilk, laughing their asses off!
