NERDGASM: COMIC BOOK HEROES ‘SIMPSONIZED’

By 06.05.09

In the geekiest-yet-coolest thing I’ve seen since Conan O’Brien’s Super Mario “Tonight Show” set yesterday, a website called Springfield Punx takes popular characters from the worlds of comic books, television, video games, and nerds’ wet dreams and turns them into “Simpsons”-style cartoon characters.  Writes Dean Fraser of his side project:

The idea of doing fan art parodying some of my favorite characters and stars in such a fun and simple style got me hooked immediately. Some of these guys and gals have appeared on the Simpsons and I could just work from that, but most I had to do from scratch.

Dean just finished a week of recreating characters from “Lost,” including Benjamin Linus before and after getting beaten to a pulp.  Frankly, I’m grateful he didn’t make Kate any sexier.  I’ve got kind of an unhealthy thing for cartoons.  I blame Cheetara from “Thundercats.”  And of course Japan.
