SNL Nerds – Bonus Episode – 1941: The Illustrated Story with artist Stephen Bissette!

John and Darin talk to comic book legend Stephen Bissette all about adapting 1941 into comics for Heavy Metal’s 1941: THE ILLUSTATED STORY and attending the New York premiere of the film! Stealing reference material! Magic mushrooms! Letters from Steven Spielberg! The story behind the comic is just as nuts as the movie — Check it out on an All-New BONUS episode of the SNL Nerds!

Correction from Stephen Bissette: Alex Toth did the Dell Movie Comics for THE LAND UNKNOWN (1957), not THE LOST WORLD (1960). Even comic book legends have brain farts.
