Alan Moore is to feature in a forthcoming episode of 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 fiancÃ©e 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…”
My daughter’s going to love this. She adores THE SIMPSONS, and treasures the signed book Alan gave her for Xmas a few years back.
