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.

Seeing the cool cover artwork for this comic book (the Simpsons in straight jackets) I had high expectations for this book. At first, I thought I was going to be completely disappointed. The first comics are not very funny and almost as silly as the "Big Book of Bart" books. The first comic, "Journey to the Cellar of the Kwik-E-Mart" is annoying. It starts with a strange photo featuring such things as Lisa wearing a Squishzilla cup and a guy in a chicken outfit tied to the hood of a car and then takes the reader back in certain increments of time to explain the ending. I kept forgetting what the comic was about while reading it. The ending to "Tic Tac D'oh" is farfetched even by Simpsons' standards. In "The Prime of Miss Lisa Simpson," Bart has the teachers deported and the top students have to take over their classes (this one has some pretty funny moments). In "Hamburger's Little Helper," the Simpson dog gains stardom after biting Krusty the Klown in the butt. Sideshow Bob is released from prison only to start a crime school in "Angels with Yellow Faces." The true gem, however, is "The Rise and Fall of Bartholomew J. Simpson." If you enjoyed the episode "Lisa's Wedding" where Lisa gets a glimpse of her future, this comic is for you. Lisa visits Bart in the hospital and hears him utter two words. She then researches the past to find out what they mean and why an anonymous person donated a digestive tract to her ailing brother. This comic is hilarious and you will never guess who Maggie ended up marrying!! Another fun addition is John's (the gay guy in "Homer's Phobia") Cockamamies Collectible catalog which includes references to many past Simpsons episodes. The shorts feature Bartman, Poochie, and Mr. Sparkle (the latter being as odd as the character). The look at the Simpsons' future makes this comic book worthwhile.

My 11 & 13 year old love reading these. I find them a better bargain than buying the magazines. Great for travel.

Great way to improve my son's reading habits over the summer. The Simpsons keep him interested and engaged. He no longer watches the clock to see if reading time is over.

Instead of getting 4 stories like you usually do with other book. You get 2 more fun stories to read. This comic book involves a future episode mystery where Lisa has to solve a case about future Bart. Homer becomes a participant in a death game by Mr burns and Krusty the Klown. Also a neat segment of Bart, Lisa, Martin and Milhouse discovery a magnificent place located under the KKwik-E-Mart.

I love this comic compilation book, it is one of the better ones out there but they are all pretty good in themselves as well. there are alot of fairly unique stories in this one, and all are good reads. The only one that I thought was a bit mediocre is Hamburger's Little Helper which was not quite as interesting as the other stories, it wasnt terrible but just paled in comparison.

The first of my favorites is Journey To The Center Of The Kwik-E-Mart! It's the first one in the book and it starts off strong, by showing us a picture with the Simpsons family and friends staring at the aftermath of a wild adventure. I wont spoil what that is though it's too good although you could probably guess by the title, it reads in a very distinct way which can be slightly irritating at first but youll get used to it. I love the character dynamics in this one, the way Bart, Lisa, Milhouse and Martin interact with each other is very funny and combined with the setting makes for a very entertaining read. One thing I didnt like though was that they didnt have to go all the way with the reading style they chose. What happens to Lisa is also slightly disturbing, something about a naked 8 year old girl surrounded by three horny boys seems not right, but maybe I'm reading too much into it. Anyways great story, it gets an A-.

My second favorite is The Prime of Miss Lisa Simpson, a very interesting little situation comedy where Lisa and Martin are made the interim teachers of their respective classes after Bart gets most of the faculty deported(nothing much comes from this though). Without Giving away more than I already have, This one is good mostly for being a Lisa-centric story which is good considering she doesnt get much attention in most Simpsons comics.
