Alan Tudyk announces Spectrum comic book series

In what can only be described as the most meta thing I’ve heard yet today, Alan Tudyk announced today that he will be launching Spectrum, a new comic book series about the short-lived TV series at the center of Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s new web series Con Man. So to recap, the star of a real cult classic sci-fi show is going to release a comic book based on a fictional cult-classic sci-fi show from his web series about two actors who were stars of a short-lived cult-classic sci-fi show. My head hurts.

Con Man was released last April after breaking records as the largest funded web series in history, raising $3.2M on Indiegogo. “In the world of Con Man, Spectrum has given my character Wray Nerely a huge fan following,” Tudyk said in a press release. “A comic book is the best way to tell the story that ignited that fandom. It’s the serious sci-fi story, inside the comedic story, told inside a comic book that is sold inside comic book stores. Every good Con Man needs a comic.”

This four-issue series from Automatic Publishing will be written by Tudyk and novelist/producer PJ Haarsma, with artwork by Sara Stone.  It will debut on Free Comic Book Day next May at comic book stores nationwide.
