Satan's little helper: The Boston Globe profiles Marvel Knights 4 writer and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who discusses his latest play, Say You Love Satan -- and reveals he's working on a cartoon series for Nickelodeon with singer Jewel:

"In Say You Love Satan, a Johns Hopkins graduate student meets a handsome, charismatic stranger who (he discovers when they start dating) has a 666 on his forehead. Who is this guy? The devil's son? Or something worse?

"Aguirre-Sacasa describes Satan as both a relationship comedy and an occult comedy. 'It nods to the movies I grew up with, The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, and The Omen,' he adds. The play was written five years ago, and while Aguirre-Sacasa says he has a lot of 'ex-plays' (ones he's 'broken up with'), this isn't one of them."
