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.

Simpsons, Comics on Parade, is the second Simpsons comic book collection I've gotten so far. If you look on the page for the Simpsons Comics Spectacular you will find another one of my reviews. After reading both of them, I would definitely recommend the Simpsons, Comics on Parade, because of the variety of stories jam-packed in it. My favorite would have to be issue #25 because it seemed the most like a real Simpsons TV episode. I could imagine everybody saying everything, and it had a great plot as well. KEEP IT UP GROENING!

Format: Paperback
I have a dozen Simpsons comic books and read them all over and over again. On Parade, though, is my least favorite. Like all the books, the artwork is awesome and it has all the popular Simpsons characters, but, unlike the other books, most of the comics have very weak endings.
"Send in the Clowns": A "devastating mass of hot air" is headed towards Springfield. The Presidential campaign, that is. It even includes big-eared third party candidate L. Ron Percent. Nice idea, but the story doesn't really go anywhere.
"Homey Alone": Just when you thought every Simpsons character has been the subject of a comic strip, here's a strip starring Li'l Homey (Homer as a kid). Homey is left home alone and sets up a burglar trap. Who comes knocking but "eaglette" Li'l Mrs. Krabapal selling cookies. Again, a weak ending to a promising strip follows.
"Marge Attacks": Frustrated with the lack of quality programming on the tube, Marge writes a letter to Mayor Quimby. Quimby campaigners think riding on Marge's wholesome apron strings will be the way to get the morally challenged mayor re-elected. Again, the ending could have been better.
"Diner Violations": Funny short starring Springfield's finest, Lou and Eddie.
"Game Called Because of Pain": Itchy and Scratchy short with a baseball theme.
"Get Off the Bus": Sideshow Bob attends to his prison duty of cleaning the school buses and decides to fight for the cause of school bus safety (why Bob all of a sudden is concerned with the safety of children is unexplained). Ironically, Bob boobytraps Bart's seat so that, when Bart is hurled to a gruesome death, changes will be made to save the lives of others. It's up to Otto to save Bart and his classmates. This comic is one of the better ones in this books.

Format: Paperback
The Simpsons Comics carry on in this edition, but it seems to be a slight sag here. The first edition, in which the political parties come to town seems to drag. But, we get some classics, like "They Saved Homer's Brain". It's not up to the classic that was Simpsons Comics Extravaganza, but it's better than some stuff from Simpsons Comics Spectacular.
