Big Bang Is Back, On TV And In The Comics
As most of you already know, this past Monday, September 21, brought The Big Bang Theory back for a third season on CBS. What you may not know is that the four comic-book loving geeks—make that geniuses—also make an appearance in a comic book now on the stands. In the October issue (no. 4) of Power Girl, written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and drawn by Amanda Conner, the Big Bang boys make a cameo appearance, as you can see in the page pictured to the left. It's entirely appropriate that the male stars (sorry, Penny) of the show appear in this context, not only because the geeky guys are funny-book freaks but also because Power Girl is published by DC, which is owned by Warner Bros., which produces The Big Bang Theory. Now that's synergy of a very fun kind. For more Big Bang fun, check out Ed Squair's (who has already posted about the Big Bang-Power Girl crossover) report on the show's presentation at this summer's Comic-Con.
