On Order



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.

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.
