Marvel is excited to announce that on Wednesday, July 16th, at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, Marvel’s Joe Quesada will be announcing an all-new comic book title and all-new era for one of Marvel’s most classic Super Heroes on the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.
With Stephen Colbert about to take David Letterman’s throne and abandon his Bill O’Reilly-like persona, it’s time for a little reminder that he can do other characters as well. Prior to making a solo name for himself, he and his fellow Steve (i.e. Carell) were Saturday Night Live’s Ambiguously Gay Duo of Ace and Gary, who confounded foes with suggestive poses while never actually confirming their personal life details.
This summer, they can insert themselves right into your heart and cram onto your computer with this bobblehead-style toy that attaches to your monitor (and probably other things). We’re delighted to be debuting the first pictures of it right here on TR. Best of all, you don’t even have to go to Comic-Con for this item to penetrate your warm household – additional supplies will be available for $11.99 at Entertainment Earth.

Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.
Hey there Hubsters! After a long (and eventful) two week-break, fake news is back this Monday! So much has happened since the last shows, including a Supreme Court ruling allowing family-owned corporations to deny healthcare options to employees because of religious beliefs, the Israeli military strikes on Gaza, the latest revelations of the FBI’s ethnic profiling of Muslim Americans, the World Cup Final, the end of a Facebook experiment which manipulate the emotions of users, and more. As always, let us know what you think about the guests, their projects, topics you hope they cover for the week, and anything else you might want to add in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week are two radio hosts, an internet pioneer, and an animal rights lawyer.
Jon’s guests this week are a political commentator for Slate, a comedian, and an actress.
Writers and self-proclaimed satire nerds Sharilyn Johnson and Remy Maisel are pleased to announce their upcoming book Bears & Balls: The Colbert Report A-Z, to be released later this year.
The unofficial fan guide will serve as the ultimate viewer’s handbook, taking fans through notable (and forgotten) moments from the past nine years.
“We’re excited to finally share our encyclopedic knowledge of the Colbert Report in a context that won’t cause people to slowly recoil in fear,” Johnson says.
Johnson is a veteran entertainment journalist and blogger specializing in comedy, whose credits include the Toronto Star, Winnipeg Free Press, NOW Magazine, and the Huffington Post. Despite living in Toronto, she’s travelled to 12 Report tapings, and is thrilled that her 13th will now qualify as a tax writeoff.
Maisel is the co-author of the upcoming book Is Satire Saving Our Nation? Mockery and American Politics. She writes for the Huffington Post and has been interviewed by the Wall Street Journal and Politico. She maintains that the book is definitely not just an elaborate ruse to justify watching Stephen’s dressage training segment 147 times for “research.”
Bears & Balls will be published independently as an e-book this November for Amazon Kindle (sorry, Stephen) and additional platforms TBA. A print edition will follow in 2015.
Where were you when the Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon? Or if you weren’t around in the late 1960′s, what do you make of that “giant leap for mankind?”
Buzz Aldrin — the second man to walk on the moon — wants to hear from you, as he explains in the video above, released in anticipation of the moon landing’s 45th anniversary later this month.
“The whole world celebrated our moon landing, but we missed the whole thing because we were out of town,” Aldrin jokes in the video. “So now I invite you to share with me and the world, your story or your family’s story of where you were on July 20th, 1969.”
Celebrities are already buzzing about the anniversary, from Bill Nye to Stephen Colbert to John Travolta.
“I was five years old and my mom swears she got me up and she put me in front of the TV with my other ten brothers and sisters,” Colbert says in the video (03:15 – 03:23).
