* TheNewRockAndRoll: Seemingly parodied in the third issue, in which a game of a faux-D&D actually causes a demon to breach our reality.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Unbeknownst to most fans of the films, the MIB in the comics are more ruthless and sinister than their film and cartoon counterparts, so much so that we later learn that they only deal with all this paranormal stuff as a plot to [[spoiler: TakeOverTheWorld]]. A big theme in the story is that what the MIB are doing (torturing and killing innocent beings, brainwashing people) is wrong.

The series was published by Aircel Comics, an imprint of Malibu Comics, which was eventually bought out by Creator/MarvelComics, which went on to publish three of its own ''Men in Black'' one-shot comic books (they were based on the live-action films, rather than the original comics, however; the company did bring creator Lowell Cunningham back to write them and also reprinted the very first issue of ''[=MiB=]'', though).

* One of the stories was about a group of kids playing [[{{Tabletop RPG}} a Dungeons And Dragons clone]] who found an ancient mystical artifact and used it as their 20-sider. (They didn't know it was magic, they just thought it was cool-looking.) When one of them casts a "summon demon" spell, an actual demon appeared and destroyed half their house, and most of the town they lived in.

** Most notably J and K. Especially K, who is way more nasty than he is in the movies and cartoon. This leads to:
* AdaptationalVillainy: The aliens, demons and other paranormal creatures were a lot more sympathetic in the comics. In this comic, HumansAreTheRealMonsters.
