Some people watch Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos as a science show. Other's watch it more as a CGI-powered spectacular. Artist Andrew Stewart seems to enjoy it both ways, although his 5-page, black and white fan comic celebration of the FOX TV series definitely skews toward the latter, propelling the show's host through some of the most enjoyable cosmic imagery this side of Jack Kirby's adaptation of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Here's how Stewart describes the comic on Tumblr:

So uh… I love the series Cosmos. I love Neil deGrasse Tyson. What better way then to make a short crappy comic about it. I used brushes I made then some made by kyletwebster and jigokuen!

Stewart is (too) modest online. If anything, he should consider making more. If not, somebody should consider looking into doing a proper Cosmos comic book tie-in along the lines of other science comics and graphic novels like The Stuff of Life. It doesn't take an astrophysicist to see the potential there.

You can read Stewart's full comic at his official Tumblr page.
