Amazon.com Review

Simpsons Comics Wingding contains Simpson Comics issues #19 to #23 and features crazy antics from Bart and family. The fun includes "Don't Cry for Me, Jebediah," in which Bart creates city-wide fervor by rigging the statue of the city's founder so that it appears to cry real tears; "The Artist Formerly Known as Bart," which has national pop-star singing sensation Biff Westwood trading places with Bart (because, of course, they look alike); and the Bart-and-Milhouse-take-on-France story, "Bart de Triomphe." The most clever story is a small five-page parody called "Rev. Lovejoy's Hellfire Comics, " a right-wing propaganda piece to which Bart has added his sarcastic comments and doodles in crayon.

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: Comic
I have a dozen Simpsons comic books and Wingding is my favorite! Every comic is a hit and it starts off with the best Simpsons comic ever: "Don't Cry for Me Jebediah." Bart has to do a school essay on the town founder. For once, Bart is motivated due to the prize for the top paper: a year's supply of Squishees (Mrs. Krabapal made out with Apu to get this prize). Unable to find a new, exciting angle, Bart decides to create his own by hooking up an apparatus to make the Jebediah Springfield statue in the middle of town appear to cry. The media circus kicks into high gear! Town square becomes a haven for opportunistic vendors including Moe's "tear beer", Ned Flanders' "shroud of Jebediah" hankies, and Homer's "tear in a cube." Bart can almost taste those free Squishees!
"The Artist Formerly Known as Bart": The teen heartthrob of the month is touring his way through Springfield. His name is Biff Westwood and he looks remarkably like Bart (why Lisa would have the hots for a kid who looks like her brother's twin is cause for further examination, but back to the summary...). Biff wants to spend a day as a normal kid while Bart is always attracted to the wild side of life. What if...
"Stand and Deliverance": Bart is busted for using Principal Skinner's credit card to start a "School Shopping Network." His punishment is a "back to basics" camping trip led by Groundskeeper Willie. Curiously, the only other camper is do-gooder Martin Prince (maybe that's the real punishment). In one funny scene, Otto swerves his bus to avoid a raccoon ("I wouldn't wanna upset the balance of nature") only to start a forest fire in the process killing the raccoon from smoke inhalation.

I recently found this book on the internet. I did not even know that this book existed. I thought about buying it. For what seemed like decades, I thought about buying it. Then I decided not to buy it. Based on what I saw of the cover, I thought this book was by far the best book I have ever read. I think the author had his neck screwed on correctly while writing this book. I was thoughly impressed with the subject. The only thing that left anything to be desired was of course the amount of junk on the website. Still. . .
