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.

My son loves the Simpsons and wasn't too into reading. I thought what better way to get him into reading than buying him books about his beloved Simpsons. Sure enough he sat down with it and read it cover to cover without getting off the couch.

Woo-hoo!!! All right! a Simpsons comic book! me and my bud both luv the Simpsons TV show and when my friend had seen a Simpsons comic book she just had to have it. so i took the liberty of ordering it off of here b/c you get it so much cheeper than at the store. she luved it and so did i.

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

Format: Paperback
"Simpsons Comics, Belly Buster" is a collection of stories captured from approximately 6 issues of "The Simpsons" comic books. Clocking in at 176 pages this book provides great value for a graphic novel, especially when factoring in Amazon's usual discounting. The problem with "The Simpsons" comics in general though is that they are typically not close to being as funny as even the most mediocre episode of the TV show. Therefore I would not recommend this book for purchase if you are expecting the same high quality of humor found in the TV series, but if you are fine with slightly weaker writing then by all means you'd be hard pressed to find a better value of reading for the Simpsons fan.

Belly Buster is another solid Simpsons comic book with the same type of art and humor you get from the television shows. There are a lot of shorts in this one but, for the most part, the comics offer good story lines with lots of typical Simpsons satire.

"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.
