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.

Format: Paperback
The latest in the Simpson's family comic book anthologies, Simpsons Comics Royale features the further misadventures of America's favorite animated cartoon family. In addition to the fabulously funny and satirical stories (Walls of Nothing; Double Date; Li'l Goodfellas; The 1001 Costumes of Bartman; Inside Bongo Comics; Krusty's 11; Love Gory; Krusty's Channeling Tips; Planet Of The Strange-O's; and Lisa's Adventures In Wordland), the reader is treated to wonderfully funny and occasionally informative commentaries by Matt Groening. Simpsons Comics Royale is a "must" for the legions of fans following Springfield's favorite family of Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie Simpson, along with all of their friends, neighbors, and fellow Springfieldians!

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the larger ones--159 pages. Unlike the even bigger book, Unchained,which was over 170 pages of comics and other fun stuff, Royale includes short stories by Matt Groening. These stories are about his childhood (his first bully, cheap haircuts, etc.) that sheds some light on what influenced his creation of those cool Simpsons characters. While the stories are interesting, I'd prefer more comics, fake advertisements, etc. Groening could put his stories in a separate book for those interested in his life. Comic-wise, the book includes shorts featuring Radioactive Man, Krusty the Klown, Bartman, Sideshow Mel, and Itchy & Scratchy. The four full-length comics are as follows:
"Wall or Nothing": The first comic is the funniest. In a fight over Springfield's water supply, residents of upper and lower Springfield start a feud that culminates in a giant wall dividing the town. When visiting his father, Milhouse finds himself on the other side of the wall. Can Bart rescue his friend?
"The Inquisitory Zone": Lisa is excited about a new "educational" kids' play house at the mall. Bart is excited when he discovers some of the attractions likes "Whack the Abandoned Vehicle," "Fun With Saws," and the "Graffiti Area." Wait 'til Lisa finds out whose really behind the Inquisitory Zone.
"Krusty's 11": Hoping to try out his serious acting skills, Krusty stars in his first motion picture. The producers, however, only want Krusty to clown around.
"Lisa's Adventures in Wordland": A very clever comic that can only be appreciated through detailed exploration. How many comics come with references?

Format: Paperback
Out of my humongous Comic book library, this comic is one of my favorite. It's not like the other Simpsons Comics that I have. One thing is that this comic seems to have used water color which makes the pages seem more smoother and the pictures more realistic. The Comic contains a whole lot of other single Simpsons Comic Books into this one jampacked Comic. One of my favorite Comics here have to be "The Incredibly Stimulating Life of Sideshow Mel" which has no actual talking going on but it just shows Sideshow Mel going to the laundry and meeting up with an odd looking dog ...it's sort of hard to explain but it actually looks so boring that its amusing. This is a worthy addition to any Comic Book Collection.

I've been watching the Simpsons for a while and just got this book for fun. Its great and even more craziness in one book. This book is also huge and full of great essays by Matt Groening. This book has 10 stories of the Simpsons everything form Itchy & Scratchy to how comics are made. This is a great book and a must for Simpsons fans.

I am a pretty rabid fan of the Simpsons, so I own a few of the comics and comic collections. This is not like the other comic collections where a few books are put together. These are new comics, along with comic book versions of episodes from the series. Reading the "episodes" is pretty cool in and of itself. There are also 15 short essays from Matt Groening - always good to have words direct from the master. He covers a lot of new topics like why Bart's hair is spikey, which character he likes the best, etc. Don't miss the "47 Secrets About The Simpsons, a Poem of Sorts, and Some Filler" chapter! A great buy for any Simpsons fan, a must buy for fanatics!
