Stephen Colbert's comic book adventures

Tek JansenOccasionally on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert reads an excerpt from his fictional fiction book, Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure, which features Stephen as the main character, Tek. The whole thing is a joke on Bill O'Reilly's 1998 novel, Those Who Trespass (O'Reilly clearly based the bad-ass TV journalist on himself). Well, Stephen's going to one-up Papa Bear because Tek Jansen's about to be thrown in the comic book world!

During Comic-Con, the Oni Press panel made their expected announcement about an upcoming My Name Is Earl comic and then followed up with the surprising revelation that they also want to work on Tek Jansen adventures. Talks are currently in process with Stephen and his writing staff, because they'll be involved in the project, right alongside the usual Oni team.

Exciting news for those who love Stephen and "crappy, Mary Sue sci-fi" parodies.

I thought there was going to be a Tek Jansen book too? I'd swear I read a bunch of it online.

I can't wait to get my grubby little mitts on this when it comes out. The Tek Jansen skits Colbert does are hilarious and it truely shows how much of a geek he is. Man, I love this show!!!

Also, on the Mary Sue fiction reference, I love that term because L. Ron Hubbard's third and final wife was named Mary Sue. The term can pretty much be slapped on any of the scifi he wrote....ugh.

I think Oni Press would be better off making My LifeTime Gamer Sitcom, Video Gaming Store and Saturday afternoon Cartoon a reality...

Better Bucks from old farts that got em...
