Best. Simpsons. Episode. Ever…

on November 18, 2007 in Uncategorized

The news was spread several months ago that the enigmatic Alan Moore graciously agreed to guest star on the Simpsons–apparently he is a fan of the series (although I’ve read that he and Melinda don’t own a TV. hmmm….) Regardless, the whole episode should have revolved around the hip new comic book store “Coolsville” that put The Android’s Dungeon out of business. Owned by Milo (voiced by Jack Black) the store honors fan opinion over old school fanboy encyclopedic knowledge of continuity. Milo stocks Tin Tin comics. They’re out on shelves to be enjoyed.

While Milo hands out Japanese hard candy and sings along to Tom Jones’ “What’s New Pussycat?” our old friend Comic Book Guy soothes his insecure ego with obscure knowledge and mylar casing.

The brilliance of all can be summed up in this scene:

Go League of Extraordinary Freelancers Go!
