Summary

Summary

In this new compilation, the Simpsons travel to the land of Krustonia, Homer Simpson vies for the Springfield wrestling championship, Mr. Burns clones a plant full of Smitherses, and Homer contracts amnesia and thinks he is Radioactive Man. This is the eighth book in our comic book compilation series by Matt Groening.

Here's a look at the Simpsons' latest antics:

#28: Come to the land ruled by the funniest man ever to secede from the United States for tax purposes: Krusty the Clown! See a page torn from our nation's history and a new chapter taped in neatly so the pages don't stick together!

#29: Let's get ready to Ruuuuuuuuuumble! Prepare yourself for a battle royale with cheese as Homer J. throws his fat into the ring in a quest to become the wrasslin' champeen of all Springfield!

#30: Montgomery Burns has fired every one of his employees and has replaced them with clones of Waylon Smithers! Yet, it isn't long before these Smitherses are at each others throats, throwing the plant into chaos as each vies to be the object of Burns' affections! Can the one, true Smithers save the plant before it's torn apart by his neatly dressed, gene-spliced brethren?

#31: Homer Simpson IS Radioactive Man! At least, that's what he thinks after contracting a nasty case of amnesia en route to a costume party. This fusion delusion leads to confusion and forced seclusion in Springfield's foremost mental institution!


Author Notes

Matt Groening, 1954 - Matt Groening was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He moved to Los Angeles in 1980 to start writing the comic strip "Life in Hell" for the newspaper he worked for. The strip had premiered in 1977 and appears in over 250 newspapers worldwide.

Groening got his big break when the Fox television network was looking for a filler for "The Tracy Ullman Show." James L. Brooks had seen some of the "Life in Hell" strips and offered Groening a chance to create 30 second skits for the show. The skits were so well received that the newly titled "The Simpsons" for which Groening was now creator and executive producer of, debuted on Fox as a half hour Christmas special on December 17, 1989 and as a regular series on January 14, 1990.

In 1993, Groening formed "Bongo Comics Group" which publishes "Simpsons Comics," "Itchy and Scratchy Comics," "Bartman," "Radioactive Man," "Lisa Comics" and "Krusty Comics." In 1995, he founded and published "Zongo Comics," which included "Jimbo" and "Fleener" Groening oversees all of the licensing and merchandising of the "The Simpsons." He is also a best selling author, publishing books such as "Life in Hell," "Work is Hell" and "School is Hell," based on his "Life in Hell" comic strip, and "Bart Simpson's Guide to Life" based on "The Simpsons" animation.

Groening is also creator and Executive Producer of "Futurama," another animated prime time television show.
