Oni launched Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen with a release on July 11. (The book was delayed from its originally planned March date, which isn’t surprising for a licensed publication, especially if the licensee wants input and isn’t familiar with the typical comic publishing schedule.)
Unfortunately, Colbert’s TV show The Colbert Report was on vacation that week, so there wasn’t a mention of the title, which his viewers would presumably be interested in. Oddly, though, I don’t believe there’s been any mention since he’s been back, either. Isn’t that losing out on the biggest potential of the license? I mean, you can’t make someone plug something, but it’s surprising to note the lack, especially since the book was done with his participation and it seems like it would fit into the tone of the show.
