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.

"The Simpson Family Circus"--The Simpsons get a 5,000 channel digital satellite system and watch so much TV, a television ratings service believes the Simpsons to be the trendsetters for popular culture. Highlight: Ozzy Osbourne jokes.
"Crap That No One Wanted"--Comic book guy goes over some one-off comics featuring Mayor Quimby, Grandpa Simpson, Moe & Barney, and the Bongo Annual Corporate Report. Highlight: "Josephus Fitzgerald Quimby was born in a log cabin, which he himself helped his father build."
"Yellow Crush"--Springfield's Aztec theatre is about to be replaced. During a farewell film festival, Bart spots Grandpa in a surfer movie. Grandpa teaches Bart to surf so he can compete in a contest--then a tsunami strikes.
"License to Kilt"--Marge competes on "Steel Chefs" and Homer has an accident (on purpose) to get money from the show.Read more ›
Let me begin by addressing the parents. Simpsons Comics is a great avenue into reading for those who might be reluctant. The stories are innocuous and inoffensive--much less so than the occasional digression of the TV show. They're familiar, and they're easy to access. As a librarian, I regularly see our Simpsons Comics collections circulate, so while I can't claim that there's anything of great educational value within, they're getting kids to read.
Across the 11 stories, written and drawn by a collection of authors and artists, it slowly became clear that while based in the Simpsons universe, and loosely in the canonical world of The Simpsons, this is a whole different animal. And also that one of the two Martha Stewart-in-jail jokes in two subsequent issues should have been caught.
The Simpsons has existed for so long in one signature format that it's firmly entrenched itself in one "brand" of humor. When it strays from Simpsons humor, it feels off, and when it stays with humor that works best in an animated format, the comic pages just don't communicate the funny.Read more ›
