    The miniseries is very hilarious! Worthy of Stephen Colbert. It's even funnier when you read it in your mind in Colbert's voice.

    I didn't even know this was coming out - hadn't heard a thing about it.

    Interesting. I'll definitely have to check it out.

    OK, so I bummed #1 off my brother and gave it a read. Ummm... Wow, where to start. Reading it in Colbert's voice is definitely the way to go. Some funny stuff in there keeping with the Tek Jansen tone, though it does feel kind of like one joke stretched over 22 pages or so. Could end up making a good mini, but is there enough for anything past 5 issues? Remains to be seen.

    So far, Tek has [hl=black]accidentally started an interplanetary war with the Optiklons. Naked. There was also a backup story about Tek solving the race relation issues of a planet.[/hl] Future issues will follow up on the Optiklon threat.
