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.
Top Customer Reviews
My favorites were three: an "Orion-esque" constellation of the Simpsons family eyes, Psychedelic Marge, and "Homer the Hutt."
For those who count these things, Homer is in his underwear on three posters, Bart is mooning on two, and there are two wedgies.
Usually there are few or no words, but there is Ralph Wiggum's pledge of allegiance:
"I fudge a legions,
To the flack,
Of the enlightened
Skates of a merry cup.
And two derrick public,
Four witches dance,
In the visible,
With liver tea and
Just us for owl."
Two complaints. First, the large sprinkled doughnut appearing on both the front and back cover does not appear as a poster. Second, as a "poster book," I'd really have liked the book to be on better quality paper, and worthy of matting and framing. Perhaps "Simpsons art" is better located elsewhere. There are a bunch of pricey art celluloid (cel) pieces available. Perhaps this particular book should be renamed "Simpsons art for the unwashed masses."
