Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind is a Bart Simpson Comics story that appears in Bart Simpson #1.

Plot[edit]

Kang and Kodos search for a typical Earth child for scientific research, though Kang just wants to snack on them. The aliens abduct Lisa, who immediately becomes fascinated with them and repeatedly asks about their technology. Kang tries to lure her into his oven, but Lisa starts asking about what type of food they eat. Frustrated by her constant questions, the aliens send Lisa back to Earth. They abduct Bart instead, who instantly looks for ways to blow things up. Bart graffitis on a cow with a cow-defacing gun and presses a command to make a human singer called David return to the mothership after 95% completion of world domination. He then uses a crop circle ray to insert a peace symbol into Otto's herb garden. The aliens return Bart to Earth as he is too energetic. They later prepare to cook and eat Ralph.
