Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, delivers big-time laughs to your front door with a brand-new comic collection you can order to go! Set out for the open road as "Simpson-mania!" sweeps the nation and Homer Simpson becomes the tastemaker and trendsetter for all that's hip, cool, and chic in the world. Ride the waves with Grampa Simpson as he relives his days as a starry-eyed surfing stuntman and soldier of fortune. Head for the rolling hills of Scotland and meet Groundskeeper Willie's estranged brother. Make room and make way for Nelson Muntz when he becomes a part of the Simpson family. Then Krusty the Clown loses his way and his identity when a tragic accident leads to a loss of his legal rights. And then while chaperoning Lisa's class on a trip from sea to shining sea, Homer takes to the highway and weaves all over the map with his own hysterical history of America.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After all these years, Simpsons Comics are still fun and clever. They also keep bringing in one-off or occasional characters from episodes past and giving us background stories on ol' favorites. In the case of "Hit the Road," the ventriloquist who gave us Gabbo makes an appearance and Groundskeeper Willie's homeland story is revealed. This set of comics is not as funny as others--I think it needed a dose or two of Flanders--but there are still some hilarious moments. This issue is also the first one that actually makes an attempt--however loosely--to keep with the theme of the cover as shown in the notes on the back (my cover is different from the one listed here--I like the listed cover better as mine has them traveling like hillbillies). There is some traveling across the country and overseas. As clever filler, the issue offers the main Simpson characters in continent form which also keeps with the "Hit the Road" theme.
"The Simpson Family Circus"--The Simpsons get...
I can say the comic met my expectations. Though can't be as good as the TV show since this is a comic based on the same brand I could be wrong though. Has some interesting stories. Can recommend this to Simpsons fans who are also into comics which this is the comic book form.
Great selection of comics. It's going to be a Christmas present for our son who loves watching the Simpsons so we are hoping that he will enjoy reading the comic books.
