Book Description

March 31 2008 Simpsons Comics Compilations

It's dollars to donuts you'll love the newest comic collection from The Simpsons creator, Matt Groening. Pass the buck and pass through time as you follow the plight and the flight of a lone five dollar bill through the hands of several Springfielders; visit the Springfield Unemployment Office and hear many a sad tale along with repeat regular Homer Simpson; and see Homer take on several career paths -- first as the new Springfield Elementary School principal and then as the head of the Lard Lad Donut Factory. Along the way see Homer trade places, spaces and, in an odd turn of events, faces with Ned Flanders; go to summer camp with Lisa Simpson and be caught up in a world of espionage and basket weaving; and witness the early antics of your favorite crusty comedian and discover his unlikely inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars really good :) April 17 2008
By R. Palmquist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've ALSO bought Simpsons comics ever since they've been released in the '90s, and I think they're just as good as they ever were. I loved the stories and thought they were creative, not "bottom of the barrel". I thought they were true gems, and I use the term non-sarcastically.

5.0 out of 5 stars These comics are really great! April 29 2008
By Cradle of Fish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I disagree on the "bottom of the barrel" thing. The comics have constantly been better than the show itself. Though the show is still funny (most of the time) to me, the writers of the comics seem to have the funnier stories or just plain better stories. This collection contains stories from comics I haven't bought yet so I have not read all that is in here, but I know it will be a good read. All the Simpsons Comics weather you buy them on their own or you buy then in collections such as this, are great fun and funny reads!
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Funny Aug. 26 2008
By Valenzia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I own many Simpsons Comics and Dollars To Donuts is the funniest Simpsons Comics that has been released in a while. It tops the last two issues of Beach Blanket Bongo and Jam Packed Jamboree and those were very funny too.
I highly recommend it.
4.0 out of 5 stars family fun Jan. 10 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you love the Simpsons you will love this book! i bought it for the 12 year old as it was on his wish list but the whole family is enjoying it! One word of warning - it can start an annoying epidemic of "Homerisms"" within the family!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Yes, I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and... um... everybody cut footloose."---Principal Homer Simpson Oct. 26 2008
By mwreview - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like most of the Simpsons comic books because, unlike the television series, they have remained consistently funny by creating stories around Simpsons characters instead of relying on celebrity guests. I like how these book often include comics around one-off or lesser used characters. In the case of this collection of strips, you see appearances by Lil' Krusty, Lil' Ned Flanders, and Hank Scorpio. Some reviewers have criticized these collections for having covers which have nothing to do with what's inside (i.e. "Simpsons Bonanza" has no comic dealing with the wild west). Well "Dollars to Donuts" does have strips that feature dollars (actually, a 5 dollar bill) and donuts (they don't play poker with them, though). I dropped a star because this book is not quite as solidly funny as some past comic books.

"The Buck Stops Everywhere"--The exciting journey of a $5 bill that changed history. There are A LOT of historical problems and anachronisms in this comic. Mary Todd Lincoln is made to look way more glamorous than she was in real life. Homer posing as President Lincoln??? Yeah, that would work. Photography when Lincoln was a kid? Oh well, it's just a comic.
"Kent's State"--Short where Bart makes fun of Kent Brockman during his award ceremony. The ending isn't very funny and is quite predictable.
"All Fired Up"--Homer gets fired and finds others in the unemployment office. We learn about the origins of Mel's bone (you'll see Mel in a whole different light). Patty's dismissal started with her cashing in her Laramie frequent smoker points. Groundskeeper Willie is fired and Gil, well, he always gets fired. Police Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby also have stories. Good ending.
"Asphalt Bungle"--Short about Homer taking a second job as a beggar. He got the idea when he found out a panhandler made the list of richest Springfieldians at #245 making six figures (Come on! How many millionaires are there in Springfield?).

"Ned the Simpson"--After being caught in a speed trap, Homer is sentenced to appear in a reality show (it counts as community service in Springfield's fictitious state) "House Swappers" with Ned Flanders, where they end up swapping more than furniture.
"Lisa Goes to Camp"--Strange story about Lisa in smart camp where she meets a James Bond wannabe and a kid set on taking over the world.
"Homer Effect"--A very fast-moving strip involving Bart and Milhouse being bitten by a radioactive ant (Milhouse really looks sick), the nuclear power plant being closed down as a result, and Homer becoming a wizz at his new job at the donut factory.
"'How I Spent My Summer Vacation' by Lisa Simpson" or "'To Hell and Back' by Bart Simpson"--Bart and Lisa have different takes on their summer vacations.
"Brain Drain"--Two-pager where Mr. Burns seeks the ideas of his employees to improve the nuclear power plant's image.
"The Principal of the Thing"--When the school board promotes Principal Skinner to Superintendent, a new principal is needed: Homer. This one had a strange ending but was good for the most part.
"Lil' Krusty in 'Give a Hoot, Stay in School'"--Krusty tells a short story about when he was in grade school. Mrs. Skinner was his teacher and lil' Ned Flanders was his classmate (remember the flashbacks that showed a little hellion Ned Flanders in the episode "Hurricane Neddy"?). I wish this one was longer.
