More About the Author

Matt Groening, creator and executive producer of Fox's Emmy Award®-winning series The Simpsons, made television history by bringing animation back to primetime and creating an immortal nuclear family. The Simpsons is the longest running primetime animated series in television history and is currently the longest-running comedy on television, having aired more than 400 episodes. In July 2007, the highly anticipated feature film The Simpsons Movie opened in theaters with worldwide grosses of more than $525 million to date.

Originally brought to life in 1987 for The Tracey Ullman Show, The Simpsons was Groening's amazing entry into the television animation world. Previously, he was best-known for his "Life in Hell" cartoon strip, an irreverent portrayal of love, work, school, life and relationships that currently appears in more than 250 newspapers worldwide and in a multitude of books.

Groening's other Emmy-Award®-winning creation, Futurama, launched on Fox in March 1999 and ran for five seasons. Last year Fox released the direct-to-DVD full-length original feature Futurama: Bender's Big Score. Three additional films will be released and the entire series with new episodes will air on Comedy Central this year.

In 1993, Groening formed Bongo Comics Group, where he serves as publisher of The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Simpsons Episode Guides, Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson Comics, Radioactive Man Comics, Simpsons Comics Treasure Trove, the annual Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror, Futurama Comics, more than 36 comic compilations, as well as instant classics including Bart Simpsons Guide to Life, The Simpsons Handbook, and The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album among others!

In addition to the many awards bestowed on his creations (including Emmys, Annies, and the prestigious Peabody Award), Groening was personally honored with the Rueben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, the highest honor presented by the National Cartoonist Society. To date there are more than 14 million copies of books from HarperCollins in print throughout North America, the UK, and Australia based on The Simpsons, Futurama, and Life in Hell.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite the cover, there is no western-related comic in this book (probably a good thing). This comic book is funny (it includes a comic book convention survival guide and a look at Lisa's dream house), but Matt Groening and company really raised the bar with some of their other comic books-hence the four star grade.
"Krustonia"-Krusty starts his own utopian nation to avoid paying income taxes. Sounds like something he'd do.
"Flanders' Big Score"-Fun-diddly-fun comic where amateur detective Ned Flanders investigates the case of the missing church fund-raiser money.
"Let's Get Ready to Bumble"-Homer becomes a professional wrestler. Not as good as the other comics in this book.
"Bringing Down Baby"-Short starring Maggie which also includes the infamous baby with the one eyebrow. Only mildly amusing.
"Smitherses!"-The nuclear power plant employees are on strike for a 5 cent per year raise. True to form, Mr. Burns decides that the best solution is to clone a staff of devoted sycophants (i.e. Smitherses). When the Smitherses begin to compete for Mr. Burns' attention-Watch out! This is a funny, imaginative comic.
"Bore Us the Movie Gruel"-Bart and company watch a 1950s film starring Troy McClure (how old is this guy?) and a mule. The usual sarcastic comments are offered.
"Radioactive Homer"-A complicated comic. The gist of it is that Homer believes he is Radioactive Man and joins forces with Leon (insane asylum inmate "Michael Jackson" in the TV episode "Stark Raving Dad") to take down Mr. Burns' "Project Q" (mentioned in Simpsons Comics #1 in the Extravaganza book). Has a very funny ending.

Format: Paperback
This was an okay book, with nothing exceptional. Starting the book off with "Krustonia" was a big mistake, as it's easily the worst Simpsons comic ever. Once you start reading it, it gets boring, so take my advice, read everything else first, then come back to this one, since I lost enthusiasm after struggling to complete Krustonia for several days. That said, Homer's wresting days are really funny, the Smithers clones are strange, but somehow very entertaining. (Mr. Burns better watch out :) and Homer as Radioactive Man was great, especially to see Leon "Michael Jackson" Komposki back. I also liked the mini-Ned Flanders mystery, and the guide to comic book conventions. If it weren't for Krustonia, this book would be the perfect buy.

This is his best yet, it was the first I ever got and it is still the best! The four in order of my liking is Smitherses, then Krustonia, then The Boxing One, and last Radioactive Man. But, still they were all awesome
