Nerd Alert! Nerd Alert!
The episode of The Simpsons airing this Sunday features guest voices Art Spiegelman, Alan Moore (!), and Dan Clowes (!!) — and apparently the most nerd-tastic set of inside jokes and dork-out references ever seen in popular media.
But — as a journalist, I’m accountable to the public trust. I must inform my audience of significant events which will effect their lives. And that audience, is nerds. Nerds who need to know that density of superhero, graphic novel, manga… (SPOILER ALERT)… James Bond, Archie, Wolverine and even Hergé — THAT’S RIGHT, HERG F-ING É — jokes in The Simpsons episode “Husbands and Knives” airing Sunday November 18th at 8 PM on Fox will make their nerdy heads explode!
