Colbert Universe: A Mild Rebuttal

posted by on July 11 at 15:20 PM

I was sorry to read Jeff’s earlier savaging of the Tek Jansen comic. Having just read it myself, I wish I could argue, but, well, he sort of nailed it. Allow me to give props, however, to the book’s decidedly more good secondary tale Horn Like Me! A Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen Case File written by Seattle’s own Jim Massey. Massey, whose Oni series Maintenance just got optioned to Hollywood, is a very, very, very funny man, and I’m not just saying this because he once graciously contributed a cartoon to my review of 300. Ok, maybe it played a part, but his comic book is still awesome.

I will agree, the second story was funnier than the first. But the ten minutes it took me to read the comic was still decidedly less funny than any random ten minutes of his show. That's pretty unfortunate.

FWIW Tom Peyer, writer of the other story, is also from Seattle.
