The Dethklok empire expanding into a Metalocalypse comic series

MetalocalypseConsidering that Dethklok is the biggest and most important band in the universe, my question is why it's taken so long for a Metalocalypse comic book series to get off the ground. Originally, it was just the Dethklok vs. The Goon one-shot from Dark Horse Comics. That came about because The Goon creator Eric Powell is a huge fan of the show.

From there, though, Dark Horse got with series co-creator Brendon Small and have developed a full publishing program around the Metalocalypse brand. They even got artists and writers from the show to collaborate with the Dark Horse team on whatever's going to come down the pipe.

It's not uncommon for television shows to go to comics while they're still on the air, but I believe this is the first Adult Swim series to make the transition. Maybe it'll launch a trend and we can get Venture Brothers next, or maybe a whole Adult Swim line. I wouldn't mind digest-sized anthology collections of some of their more nonsensical entries. What shows do you think would make the best comics?
