Book Description

Aug. 31 1995 Simpsons Comics Compilations
Right this way, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to another tasty all-you-can-eat collection of Simpsonoid comical funnies, written, penciled, inked, and simmered just for you by your favorite demented cartoon chefs at Bongo Comics. We've got a special meaty comic book stew du jour a-bubblin' away on the stove for you this time, full of rich Barty goodness, thick Homerish chunks, and sinewy Lisa-esque fibers. And, by popular request, we've added a scoop or two of spicy Maggie-renos, along with our usual heaping dollops of authentic Snowball II furballs, and, to stretch the meal even further, a jumbo box full of Santa's Little Helper helper.

A Milhouse salad, of course, comes with every meal at no extra charge. Krustyburgers and Sideshow Mel fries also are available, but the extra-bitter Sideshow Bob soup is off the menu -- at least temporarily.

And be sure to save room for dessert! You haven't lived 'til you've tasted a big old gooey bowl of Flanders-style flan, or munched on Ms. Krabappel's famous crabapples, or chewed on a platter full of hot itchy cakes drenched in creamy Scratchy sauce.

And if you clean your plate you get a special surprise! (The surprise being the surprised look on our faces that you actually cleaned your plate!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Simpsons Triumph! Oct. 23 2002
If the Simpsons are not on TV when you need your fix, plop down in your easy chair and open up one of the hilarious jam-packed comic books. Each book offers awesome full color illustrations along with bonus advertisements, shorts, etc. Here's what you get in this book:
"Be-Bop-Lisa"--Lisa ends up playing in a speed metal/jazz band with Otto creating a new musical sensation: "Spazz."

"The End of El Barto"--Police Chief Wiggum tells his story on how he finally caught the notorious graffiti vandal (or, so he thinks).
"The Greatest D'oh on Earth"--One of my favorites in this collection. The circus is in town, but Bart is forbidden to go because he refused to do his chores. Bart finagles the toadying Flanders boys into doing his chores for him ("Gutter cleaning's all the rage in the Holy Land") while he sneaks off to the circus. Dressed like a clown, Bart ends up in a tiny clown car with Krusty ("You never get used to the smell"). One funny box has Krusty running out of the car clutching his back: "My lower lumbar is killing me. Remind me to trade the clown car for a range rover." When Homer finds out Bart disobeyed him, the REAL show begins! Homer's stupidity is hilarious in this one.
"Dead to the Last Drop"--McBain encounters the mob at a fundraiser and deals with them in his own unique way. Krusty also makes an appearance in this one.
"I Shrink, Therefore I'm Small"--In this strip, we find out that Mr. Burns blames himself for causing the 1929 stock market crash when he gave off a horrendous burp moments before the panic began. Says Burns, "From that point on, I have supressed my need to peptically vent" (that explains a lot, actually). Now, that is something even Smithers didn't know!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinda good June 29 2000
This book, for me, is a combination of what makes the Simpsons great, and the bad that we don't see too much on TV. The book begins with "Be-Bop-A-Lisa" in which Lisa joins a band with Otto. This is one of the better ones in the collection. Next, a short called "The End Of El Barto" is a clever little police drama that is very funny. Unfortunately, the funniest thing about "The Greatest D'oh On Earth" is the title. Homer is annoyingly meaner than usual, and the plot goes nowhere. McBain next is okay. Then, "I Shrink, Therefore I'm Small" is an atrocity. I can't find one funny thing about this. Same goes for the next short. Finally, "The Purple Prose Of Springfield" is the best of the book. A Barney short at the end is good too.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's Simpsons, but not as good as the TV show. July 5 1998
By A Customer
This book is good, but it is not nearly as good as the full experience of the Simpsons that you get from the TV show. I read it once and kinda threw it in the corner and forgot about it. This is despite the fact that I am a Simpsons fanatic. I found I missed the voices from the show immensely. You lose an awful lot of the hidden jokes from the show and the humor just isn't there. Bottom line: If you absolutely can not pass this book up, buy it. Otherwise, find some other way to blow a couple bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the show Nov. 3 1998
By A Customer
I think this is one of the best products of the Simpsons yet! It is so much like the show - maybe even better (My mom says I should read more). I'm glad to see that HarperPerennial has taken the time to make a really cool book like this. With 8 episodes in it, it's what every Simpson's fan should own.
