Posted on

ThunderGeeks, hooooo! On tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory (on CBS at 8 p.m.), Leonard (Johnny Galecki) meets the holy grail of heterosexual male geekdom: A girl who loves comic books. He even meets Alice (Courtney Ford, True Blood) while shopping for comics, and the two bond so well over their respective collections, Leonard shows off one of his prize possessions: A drawing of Leonard as Lion-O from the animated series ThunderCats by DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee. Naturally, the fine folks at Big Bang actually got the real Jim Lee to do the drawing. Wanna see it? Of course you do: 

Aw, but the drawing is so small there. Don’t you want to see it close up? Of course you do:

Admit it. You’re jealous.

New episodes of Cartoon Network’s ThunderCats begin tomorrow at 8:30 p.m.
