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.

I think this is one of the best products of the Simpsons yet! It is so much like the show - maybe even better (My mom says I should read more). I'm glad to see that HarperPerennial has taken the time to make a really cool book like this. With 8 episodes in it, it's what every Simpson's fan should own.

If the Simpsons are not on TV when you need your fix, plop down in your easy chair and open up one of the hilarious jam-packed comic books. Each book offers awesome full color illustrations along with bonus advertisements, shorts, etc. Here's what you get in this book:
"Be-Bop-Lisa"--Lisa ends up playing in a speed metal/jazz band with Otto creating a new musical sensation: "Spazz."

"The End of El Barto"--Police Chief Wiggum tells his story on how he finally caught the notorious graffiti vandal (or, so he thinks).
"The Greatest D'oh on Earth"--One of my favorites in this collection. The circus is in town, but Bart is forbidden to go because he refused to do his chores. Bart finagles the toadying Flanders boys into doing his chores for him ("Gutter cleaning's all the rage in the Holy Land") while he sneaks off to the circus. Dressed like a clown, Bart ends up in a tiny clown car with Krusty ("You never get used to the smell"). One funny box has Krusty running out of the car clutching his back: "My lower lumbar is killing me. Remind me to trade the clown car for a range rover." When Homer finds out Bart disobeyed him, the REAL show begins! Homer's stupidity is hilarious in this one.
"Dead to the Last Drop"--McBain encounters the mob at a fundraiser and deals with them in his own unique way. Krusty also makes an appearance in this one.
"I Shrink, Therefore I'm Small"--In this strip, we find out that Mr. Burns blames himself for causing the 1929 stock market crash when he gave off a horrendous burp moments before the panic began. Says Burns, "From that point on, I have supressed my need to peptically vent" (that explains a lot, actually). Now, that is something even Smithers didn't know!

This book, for me, is a combination of what makes the Simpsons great, and the bad that we don't see too much on TV. The book begins with "Be-Bop-A-Lisa" in which Lisa joins a band with Otto. This is one of the better ones in the collection. Next, a short called "The End Of El Barto" is a clever little police drama that is very funny. Unfortunately, the funniest thing about "The Greatest D'oh On Earth" is the title. Homer is annoyingly meaner than usual, and the plot goes nowhere. McBain next is okay. Then, "I Shrink, Therefore I'm Small" is an atrocity. I can't find one funny thing about this. Same goes for the next short. Finally, "The Purple Prose Of Springfield" is the best of the book. A Barney short at the end is good too.
