The Big Deal: Hearhere Featuring Matt Groening And Lynda Barry

by Francesca Paris 15 Jun 2016 8:31 AM

“The Simpsons” creator and executive, Matt Groening, met author and artist Lynda Barry at Evergreen State College in the 70s, and they’ve mutually inspired each other over four decades. Groening is a cartoonist, writer and producer responsible for “The Simpsons,” the longest running U.S. primetime television series in history. Barry is best known for “Ernie Pook’s Commek,” her weekly comic strip.
