, when doing The Colbert Report
, loves to make fun of books and authors and the like. Among the other gags on his show, like his frozen sperm for sale, he also plugs his tremendously-thick book, Stephen Colbert’s Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure
. The title is a joke against the various trashy novels and long book titles in a series. The cover features a photoshopped Mr. Colbert inside a space suit, smirking dangerously. Colbert often claims on the show that he is still shopping for a publisher, but still no takers. Every so often he'd pull the prop out and read a passage on his show, which was over-the-top sci-fi portraying himself as an Arnold Schwarzenegger
Apparently it got so popular that the show commissioned a series of animated shorts, which you can watch on The Colbert Report.
