Geeks should be happy to know that Jonathan Lethem, author of the best-selling superhero novel Fortress of Solitude, has wrapped up a miniseries for Marvel Comics. Instead of injecting his take on major fixtures like Spidey or the X-Men, Lethem resurrects Omega the Unknown, an obscure 70s character that Lethem affectionately references in Solitude. Listen to Lethem discuss his jump to the comics medium at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco Sept. 23. Get your tickets here. --Oscar Pascual
