The fine funny folks at Bongo Comics have put together another Simpsons comics collection. In Simpsons Comics Strike Back,
which collects issues 15-18, there are parodies aplenty such as "Get Fatty" (a takeoff on Get Shorty
) and a skewed view on popular television shows ("A Trip to Simpsons Mountain"). The main features are, as always, written and drawn to the same high standards as the animated show. Mock old comic book advertisements like a coupon from Dr. Nick offering "a free implant with purchase of two or more implants" make this collection stand out.
