Matt Groening, creator of “The Simpsons,” will make his first guest voice appearance on Sunday’s show, Fox network said.

Although Groening’s image has appeared on “The Simpsons,” including a framed photo on the wall of Comic Book Guy’s store, this will be his first speaking role on the animated series, Fox said Wednesday.

In the episode, titled “My Big Fat Geek Wedding,” Principal Skinner gets cold feet before his pending nuptials and his fiancee, Edna Krabappel, calls off the wedding. Skinner asks Homer to help him win her back, while Marge convinces Edna she can do better.

Edna rebounds into the arms of Comic Book Guy, who whisks her off to a sci-fi convention. While at the convention, they run into Groening — guest-starring as himself — who is signing autographs for his fans.
