Weird Al Yankovic and Kurt Loder make guest-voice appearances in "That 90s Show," the Sunday, Jan. 27 episode of The Simpsons on Fox.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When Bart and Lisa discover Marge's diploma from Springfield University, Marge reveals that she had attended the university back when she and Homer had first started dating.

"In a flashback, Homer gives up his dreams of becoming a musician and takes a job at his father's laser tag warehouse to support Marge attending Springfield University. However, when Marge finds herself attracted to an offbeat professor named Professor August, Homer decides he has had enough of Marge's wandering eye. Homer instead focuses his emotions on his music, inventing a new sound called 'grunge.'

"As Marge continues to date the pretentious professor, Homer becomes the hottest grunge artist around, as evidenced by Weird Al's parody of his music. But when Marge sees a special news report on MTV with Kurt Loder announcing that Homer's band, Sadgasm, has broken up and that Homer is holed-up in a mansion hopelessly addicted to drugs, Marge must choose between her new life and her old love."

WebUndies - It's not just underwear!


Image Comics has announced an April 2 release for Archibald Saves Easter, a follow-up to last year's Archibald Saves Christmas.

"Writer Dwight MacPhearson and I had too good of a time working together on Archibald Saves Christmas to not do a follow up," said artist and creator Grant Bond. "It's a unique opportunity to explore both my humorous and sadistic sides."

Here's how Image describes the book:

"Archibald Saves Eastern continues the story behind Archibald Aardvark, one of cartoons' biggest stars of yesteryear who may or may not be a vicious serial killer. However, when his closest friends personal demons turn out to be literal, they find his Hyde-like alter ego may be the key to saving them all.

Archibald Saves Easter will be 32 pages and two-color and will cost $3.50.
