Matt Groening coming to Sydney

and Futurama creator Matt Groening will make his first visit to Australia to speak at the Sydney Opera House in November.

He will speak at the sixth Graphic festival weekend celebrating the art of graphic storytelling, illustration, comics, animation and music on November 4 and 5.

“The most intense Simpsons fanatics I’ve met are from Australia, so I’m coming to Sydney to check out all you lunatics,” he vowed. “I’m going to share stories of the making of The Simpsons and show embarrassing home movies and rarely seen animation, including oddball outtakes and uncensored Itchy & Scratchy cartoons.”

The event also includes some adult content, organisers warn, but nothing that is inconsistent with the tv show, regularly classified as PG in Australia.
