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.

    So many good lines in that one episode, right? How about that Alan Moore DVD “Watchmen Babies: V for Vacation”!
