The Graphic Novel graduates to THE SIMPSONS
I’d forgotten this was coming! Tuned in last night to a new Simpsons episodes called "Husbands and Knives" — featuring a new trendy comics shop and hilarious cameos by Tintin, Alan Moore, Dan Clowes, Art Spiegelman, and laughed my head off.
Then it occured to me: never mind about comics getting literary awards, or graphic novels reshaping Hollywood, or landing big features in the NYTimes — this episode of the Simpsons might be the real turning point that puts the graphic novel into the American household. If you’re on the Simpsons, you’ve arrived.
