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.

19 of 24 people found the following review helpful By R S Cobblestone VINE VOICE on June 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is an oversized book, allegedly for the tabletop or for mounting your favorite pictures on the wall. The 50 poster-pictures cover a variety of topics and characters, from spoofs on other movies/books (Forrest Gump, Star Wars, Lady and the Tramp), to collages of "action shots," particularly of Bart and Homer.

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,
One Asian,
Underground,
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."

These posters are printed on a nice and sturdy paper stock , have great content and a collectors dream. My only problem I have is that the posters are a little smallish (11x14) , but on the bright side I can cover an entire wall with many different scenes.

It has a lot of posters depicting The Simpsons in varies manners for example there is a Planet of the Apes and Wizard of Oz poster. My favorite one is Homer sleeping on a hammock. Worth buying to decorate a wall.
