Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings has a new book, Brainiac, coming out today that’s all about his very long run on the popular gameshow. Recently on his blog he shared a short Superman-esque comic strip he drew that didn’t make it into the book:
A little background: in Chapter 12 of Brainiac, I describe the surreal experience of secretly flying out to L.A. a couple times a month to win millions of dollars on TV, and then flying back to my dull office job the next day pretending nothing had happened. (The shows had taped already, but wouldn’t air for months.) I started to feel a little like Clark Kent at the Daily Planet, I wrote. And then I had a flash of inspiration: what if the book turned into a comic book at that moment and described my workday in the goofy style of late-’50s Superman?
