Can Alan Moore get any more cuddly? Warren Ellis posted along this link from a Northhampton newspaper, and it’s too late for April Fools: Alan Moore will guest on THE SIMPSONS:
Moore, aged 53, recorded his lines at The Lodge studios in Abington Square last month for an episode which will be called Husbands and Knives.
The Simpsons’ production team are long-time fans of Moore’s, whose reputation in the world of graphic novels is legendary.
A chance meeting with his fiancée Melinda Gebbie got the project rolling.
Mr Moore said: “Mel was in America promoting our new book The Lost Girls and one of the Simpsons producers spoke to her and asked if I would be in the show.
“She said: ‘Why don’t you give him a ring he’s very approachable’. “I was happy to do it. I’m a big fan of The Simpsons.”
Hm, could that “chance meeting” possibly have taken place at San Diego? And yes, Moore will appear with Comic Book Guy. The image accompanying this news item was posted by Mario Boon on The Engine. Artist’s conception only.
