9780060952129: Simpsons Comics Strike Back

It's another sidesplitting series of adventures as America's most popular cartoon family returns to the big colorful comic pages in this latest addition to the bestselling Simpsons anthologies.

In Simpsons Comics Strike Back, Groening fans are treated to another laugh-fest as they catch up on the latest antics of this irrepressibly irreverent family. First, it's a yuck-filled yarn of yore when Grampa Simpson reminisces about the good old days of the Depression. Then Patty and Selma take to the air as flight attendants, and the friendly skies will never be the same. Next, the network wars have come to town, and the big boys are running scared from the BBC -- the Bart Broadcasting Channel. Then last, but certainly not least, it's an epic brawl as the Presidential Fitness Program dispatches McBain to Springfield to whip the cholesterol-clogged town into shape. Between him and success, however, is hungry Homer Simpson.

When the TV show just isn't enough, fans turn to the comic books to satiate their Simpsons addiction. A veritable bonanza of the characteristic wit that made the series an international hit, this anthology will be a treasured gift for all fans of Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Homer and Marge.

Review:

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.

About the Author:

Matt Groening, the creator and executive producer of the Emmy® Award-winning series The Simpsons, as well as creator of the cartoon strip "Life in Hell" and the animated FOX television series Futurama, is the man responsible for bringing animation back to primetime and creating an immortal nuclear family. In addition, Groening formed Bongo Comics Group in 1993 and currently 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 and more than 36 comic compilations, as well as many instant classics including Bart Simpsons Guide to Life, The Simpsons Handbook and The Simpsons Uncensored Family Album.
