Colbert, in Comic Book Form

In case the thick glasses and serious fear of bears weren't enough to convince you that Stephen Colbert is a geek, here's more proof: Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen, a comic book series based on the fake newsman's sci fi hero, is about to hit the shelves.

Entertainment Weekly has a great sneak peek of the series, including seven pages from its first issue, which includes a story hilariously titled "Horn Like Me." The central character, of course, is Tek Jansen, star of Colbert's (self-published, undistributed) novel, Stephen Colbert's Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure as well as occasional animated spots on "The Colbert Report." Conveniently, even when rendered in comic form, the hero happens to look curiously like Colbert himself. (Jansen is also somewhat of a Casanova of the sci-fi world, wooing a series of girlfriends and, apparently, even ending up naked for a few pages in the first issue.)

The main story in the five-issue series follows a war Tek sets off when he refuses an offer to make the world a better place. Something tells me he'll end up the revered ruler of all the galaxies, but until we know for sure, you can check out all of "Horn Like Me" and read an interview with one of the series writers at EW.com.
