Catch the A-M block on Monday nights at 11 PM EST/PST.I was really hoping Tiffany Grant could play Yoko...
In addition, SpaceCoyote, whom you may know
as the Simpsons manga artist, will do a Death Note parody
in this year's Halloween issue of The Simpsons Comic: Treehouse of Horrors
SpaceCoyote is known already by her Simpsonized picture
of the Death Note characters, but this version of the story will be based on Springfield lookalikes in a unique enough adventure.
