Comics as a Second Language

Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen

Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen


Find it on Atomic Avenue

Genre: Super-heroes, Comedy

Fans of the hit television show The Colbert Report will love Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen. Tek is the philandering hero of the Alpha Squad, enforcing the ideals of freedom and justice across the universe while meeting sexy alien women. He isn’t afraid of sharing his opinions, and when strange new aliens, the Optiklons, appear offering a deal too good to be true, Tek doesn’t hesitate to let the Alpha Squad know that he’s suspicious. But when no one believes him, what is a rugged, handsome, head-strong hero to do but take matters into his own hands?

Jennifer grew up in an almost-rural part of California and is currently living in the metropolis of Portland. She knows how to fish without bait, find magnetic north, shoot a bow and arrow, and slaughter small animals, but very rarely does any of it.

Jennifer’s favorite comics include PS 238, She-Hulk, Usagi Yojimbo, Fables, and Impulse.
