More About the Author
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.

it has several small stories w/ the same laughs and crazy adventures the yellow family goes thru on TV. and if youre very familiar w/ the characters youll notice their small quirks and way of talking...like Dr Hibert and his laugh at the end of his sentences...ah hee hee hee hee!!! ;-D
one of my friends favorites was "Homer vs. the Wallpaper"...typical Homer trying to "do it himself", redoing maggies bedroom walls and creates a bunch of laughs getting tangled up in wallpaper and glue...great fun!
it is a rather quick read, but its good for a laugh or two (heck more than that!). if youre looking for something new to read whenever get this book and enjoy!
ps if anyone has read a comic in any of the Simpsons comic books that has Sideshow Bob in them please put it in your review! i do anything to see that crazy red-hair jail bird go after Bart again! lol
"Maggie Come Home": Lisa joins a demanding baby sitter union and Maggie ends up caught in the middle. A familiar person ends up behind the union mess. A fun, original comic.
"Storeroom Raider": Lisa must go into the school storeroom to fetch some chalk; a storeroom from which two students failed to return. Short but has a funny ending.
"What Would Possibly Happen if Cletus Went to College": Short about Springfield's "slack-jawed yokel." Can a "common man" save a financially-challenged university?
"Bart & Lisa & Marge & Homer & Maggie (to a lesser extent) vs. Thanksgiving": Follow each Simpson on his/her Thanksgiving adventure. Very contrived at the end but moderately amusing and creative.
"The Beer Boys": Homer takes over Moe's while Moe undergoes a gallstone operation. Feeling he is now "somebody," Homer starts his own bar. Ends abruptly but is still funny.
"Around Town w/ Ned Flanders": Ned is supposed to show us different sites in Springfield but his plans are abruptly cut short. This comic had possibilities but I think it came up as short as its 4 pages.
"Bart in `Fork it Over'": One-page short featuring Bart, Nelson, and Milhouse in the school cafeteria.
"Tanks for Nothing": Gampa gets a tank from the government in exchange for forfeiting unpaid back veteran benefits.Read more ›

Great book. It seems like most of the other books are just ok when it comes to "The SImpsons" comics. But this one is different. Read morePublished on October 6, 2013 by Ghost Mutt
