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.
