We've known for awhile that celebrated actor, director, author and of course, former host of PBS' "Reading Rainbow," LeVar Burton had a comic book story on the way via Dark Horse Comics, but the publisher's initial tease of a tale about "...physics, family, and consequences," left plenty of room for speculation about what the final product might yield.

ComicsAlliance is pleased to debut the entire eight-page comic short, entitled "Con-CERNed," which follows physicist Simon Barstow as he confronts the mystery of his bizarre new abilities obtained while investigating the Large Hadron Collider.
