Peyer talks the Return of "Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen"
Tom Peyer, co-writer of “Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen,” talks with CBR News about the return of the Harvey-nominated Oni Press miniseries, the WGA strike that delayed it, and the balance of idiocy.
I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of the series. I went back an reread #1 last night just to refresh my memory. Still great.
It should be noted that it looks like the interior preview art is by Robbi (Maintenance) Rodriguez, and it looks fantastic.
Something tells me that this is going to be a good issue that is going to be talked about in Colbert Show.
Never to be forgotten
Ironically, it's due to the penetrating insight of CBR's own Steven Grant (http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=16948) that leads me to dispute the labeling of Peyer as a "fan-favorite writer." Grant's right: "while 'fan favorite' is a term both fans and the fan press like to throw around with great abandon, in the context of the business it has a very specific and often willfully overlooked meaning: a 'fan favorite' is a talent whose name alone has a significant impact on sales. "
Peyer, while someone whose work I generally enjoy (dug Hourman, but his Flash is awful) is not a fan favorite, he's a guy whose name generally appears only on mainstream series which are about to be cancelled and relaunched.
