Fans of the Colbert Report need no introduction to Tek Jansen. He’s the intergalactic swashbuckling alter-ego of Stephen Colbert who is the subject of a sci-fi book and cartoon series called Alpha Squad 7.
Oni Press is releasing a five-part comic book serial based on the Tek Jansen adventures called Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen in Alpha Squad 7. Although Colbert is credited as the comic’s “Galactic Overlord,” writing credits have also been benevolently awarded to John Layman, Tom Peyer, and Jim Massey with art by Robbi Rodriguez and Scott Chantler.
In honour of the book’s release, The Beguiling (601 Markham Street) is hosting a free signing with artist Scott Chantler on Wednesday, July 11 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. We hear that some of the original artwork for Issue #1 will be for sale.
Back here on the interwebs, you can check out a few pages of Issue #1, or follow the cut for a glimpse of Issue #1’s cover art.
