Because DC just loves the Big Bang Theory, we get to continue our “Full On DC” article series this week with the latest installment of what element of DC worked its way into the popular nerd chic TV show.
This week’s episode featured two nerdy cameos. On the one hand, Courtney Ford from True Blood and Dexter guest starred as a comic reading lady Leonard meets at the local comic watering hole in the beginning of the episode (whom he takes a rather strong shine towards, what with his whole long distance relationship thing being fairly difficult). The second cameo, and the one more relevant to this article, was that made by Jim Lee, DC’s co-publisher.
Or rather, Jim Lee’s art. As you see in the scene above (and might see by looking below this paragraph), Leonard shows off his Jim Lee illustration of himself as Lion-O from Thundercats, because of course that is a thing that he would have. Why not, right? And lo and behold, a rather high-res image for you to feast your eyes on (courtesy of Entertainment Weekly):
If I was going to ask Jim Lee to draw me as someone, it would probably be as Superman. That would probably be quite amazing. But hey, Lion-O works too for some people, I guess. Different strokes and all that.
Join us next week as we try and spot the DC cross promotion, and secretly hope that all this effort is working out for them.
