I FINALLY got a copy of Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen #1 the other day. It has been sold out nearly everywhere I looked – but but favorite local seller ordered it and held a copy for me (barely).

NO this is not Star Wars Legacy. It is not the greatest SciFi comic of all time.

BUT IT IS COLBERT

and it’s funny in a campy satirical kind of way.

Tek Jansen is a bumbling version of Colbert himself i suspect doing good in the galaxy and having his way with the women folk whom he saves and appreciate his efforts. He doesn’t listen to his superiors and ends up making more trouble than he saves. His best friend is the embodiment of evil that he carries around in a little cage – and which hates him too.

Yes it’s a bit weird – but what did you expect?

Colbert is a cultural icon and Tek Jansen is his SciFi bible, his Moses if you will. Jansen will lead the nation to the promised land and along the way he’ll part the galactic skyways and bring manna to the less fortunate.

Though far be it for me.. a mere serf of the Colbert Nation to criticize Pappa Bear’s disciple but…Oni Press (publishers of Tek Jansen) have chosen perhaps the most appalling paper stock i have ever felt. Usually you don’t think much of the paper on which a comic is printed..but Jansen feels like it was printed on photocopy paper…surely he deserved better..doesn’t he Mr. Colbert???

Everyone remembers the first time they saw the Empire Strikes Back when Vader says,

“Luke I am Your Father.”

But what if Vader told him the rest of the story? You know all the stuff that we learn through the 6 movies?

One thing is for sure it makes for a hilarious Robot Chicken bit.
