The comic book legend Stan Lee is returning to Springfield after he first appeared 230 episodes back in the 2002 episode “I am Furious (Yellow)” . His next appearance comes this week in an episode, titled “Married to the Blob,” written by Judd Apatow. Lee will once again play himself and once again play off of Comic Book Guy, the show’s resident geek whose retail store Lee visited last time around. The episode also features a guest appearance by author Harlan Ellison, Seth MacFarlane, Gordon Ramsay, Joe Namath, and Aaron Sorkin. Fans will also be treated to a special sequence dedicated to Hayao Miyazaki, which you can watch here.
Here’s a brief synopsis from EW:
Homer stands to ruin a blossoming relationship between Comic Book Guy and an attractive young Japanese woman/manga fan. Lee swings by Comic Book Guy’s store and doles out some advice on comics, romance, and, yes, romance comics.
