The Lord of the Rings series was definitely missing comedic flair, which is why these Mary Johan Juver illustrations are so awesome. Can you imagine how epic Frodo, Gandalf and Aragorn would be if they were portrayed the zany characters from The Simpsons franchise? I think a lot of people would pay good money to see that come to fruition.
And Lord of the Rings isn't the only series Mary Johan Juver has fused with everyone's favorite American family; she's currently working on injecting The Simpsons into geek culture favorites like Harry Potter and Assassin's Creed. She even has anime versions of the characters rendered! No one can accuse Juver of not being a dedicated fan.
Juver also cast each Lord of the Rings character perfectly in this cool mash-up series. I can't imagine anyone but Moe Szyslak playing Gollum.
