5Seduced by Lady Nocturne  Oct 07, 2009 By J. M. Forrette
Like Stephen Colbert himself, I'm now more a fan of Stephen Colbert than of reading. However, I consider the man a comedic genius, and know that any printed word from Colbert and his team is capable of making anyone tolerate reading once again. I know he has innumerable devoted fans, and I'm sure many of them, like me, wouldn't pass up a chance to fatten his wallet by purchasing his wares--if only his fictional ones were for sale as well... Regardless, his animated series of a justice-loving, alien-seducing, space hero of the future is just as funny, exciting, and sensual on the screen as it is on the page. Tek Jansen is a more-than-worthy addition to the world of comic book heroism/debauchery. Do the literary world a favor and buy this comic. Let's make this series more popular than the collective works of William Shakespeare--after all, the era of pantaloon-clad buffoons has come to an end; this is the era of the space jumpsuit-wearing Tek Jansen!

5run to get this book  Sep 09, 2009 By Marrena Lindberg
I have all five comic books already, and if this sells anything like the comic books you need to nab it while you can. I love love love this series. It's a hilarious loving parody of the superhero comics of my youth. Not only are the dialog and plot funny, the detail in these comic books is something--even small things drawn in the background go for the joke. The illustrations and coloring are superb, and the book itself has the same high quality as the comic books--this book is a very solid hardcover of all five comics, printed on glossy paper. It's beautiful.

The main story over the five installments is how Tek Jansen accidentally starts a war with the Optiklons and spends the rest of the series raging against them. There are also five case files at the end, shorter standalone comics. The book also contains the hilariously lurid cover art from all five comics in its pages, my fave is the uber-sexual cover by Matt Wagner, seen in all its glory without the Oni Press logos and whatnot covering up the naughty bits.

Buying this will help keep my pawed over Tek comics more mint--they could use a break. I love the raging id that is Tek. Do yourself a favor and get to know him, his ladies, his enemies, his sidekicks and his overseeresses. And laugh your ass off.

5Tek-tastic!  Sep 09, 2009 By Marie Coffey "Ren"
Tek Jansen isn't known very well, even for some Stephen Colbert fans, and it shouldn't be that way! This series is hilarious and inventive and everything a real Colbert fan needs in a graphic novel. Read it over and over; it never stops being funny!

5Hlarious Colbert-filled goodness  Sep 08, 2009 By Fanny Brender "kiteofnight"
I'm not particularly a fan of graphic novels, but when I heard this Colbert-inspired comic was actually coming out, I had to have it! Hah. They manage to utilize Colbert's mentality (on the show, of course) and put it into superhero dialogue, retaining all its kind-of-ridiculous qualities while still preserving the story. It's both entertaining from a comic book action point of view as well as a Stephen Colbert's humor kind of view.

5Great Graphic Novel or the Greatest Graphic Novel?  Sep 09, 2009 By Ryerson
I am not normally one who enjoys graphic novels, but I am a fan of science fiction and an even bigger fan of Stephen Colbert. As of writing this I have only read a 26 page preview of this, but I am looking forward to having the time to obtain and read the whole thing. If this is anything like the preview I read then I will probably still be rereading this years from now. It is amazing!
