Hiya! Looks like Cork and I just took a trip to Springfield. XD

It seemed like a good time for this bonus art after Machinehead did his amazing Simpsons Zombie piece.

After my article about this new Lord of the Rings series on Tuesday, I found out that Christopher Tolkien finally resigned from the Tolkien trust! That means that a whole bunch of things are possible because he was in charge of everything and hated Peter Jackson's trilogy. Let's hope that the story of the Elves from the Silmarillion can eventually be told.

Cheers!

I'm a fan of Machinehead's comic so I'm following your Simpson vibe.

I read that about Tolkien too. Hopefully there will be some good things that come up from it.

He's the man.

I'm really hoping they can put it together into a solid middle earth continuity starting at the beginning.

The number of Simpsons episodes I saw can be counted on one hand. The show was actually a big thing here due to very early Czech dub. People are surprised when I say that but really, the show never appealed to me.
Actually, I used to watch a lot of Flintstones. Nobody is talking about that. I guess it failed and remained in obscurity? I liked the show a lot as a kid. Problem was that I could not understand it at that time plus I could not speak English (that was the only way to watch it via an illegal Cartoon Network broadcast LMAO). I cannot explain it but I always preferred Flintstones to well, pretty much anything similar :D

The Flintstones isn't obscure here in the states. There isn't anyone who hasn't watched it here.

Those Simpsonized versions of Cork and Blotto are pretty neat, Stever!

And those Lord of the Rings news reminds me of a certain Robot Chicken sketch...

Thanks!

I'll have to do some research on Robot Chicken, cause I've never seen it.

Why not? They've had everything else as a story. XD

Is that a flag of Denmark I see?

The stories of the Silmarils that I remember reading were kinda... sparse. Perhaps that's a good thing because it gives the script writers, actors, set-builders and special effects people more freedom.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I guess it will be interesting to see something new.

Nice!

They're so cool that one may confuse them for statues ;D

Not as cool as the Simpsons meeting Futurama though. XD

Nice! Gotta love a good crossover!

Hopefully Amazon studios hires the right people for the job. I wonder if Peter Jackson is available. xD

There are so many shows to watch! I'm currently watching "Mindhunter." Only 3 episodes in, but good so far. I'm ready to start "The Punisher." :)

Thanks!

I'm ready to start watching The Punisher as well.
