    This graphic novel is well-drawn, funny and a great satire as well. It's definitely worth reading and it's also in full-colour too, which is great.

    Sideshow Bob's brother Cecil is released from prison on a technicality (Chief Wiggum forgot to process him!) and targets Lisa as his arch-enemy in order to gain some street cred. The Simpsons family win an all-expense paid trip to a garbage atoll in the Pacific, and an eccentric geek without an heir seeks out Springfield's King of the Nerds. Then when Krusty is accidently given a real doctorate, he finds himself the new family physician to the town.

Then when Krusty is accidently given a real doctorate, he finds himself the new family physician to the town. Lastly, take a trip through the Springfield Elementary hall of permanent records and learn the shocking origin of one of the town's most stalwart citizens. I've read a bunch of Simpsons Comics over the years. Why I don't just commit and collect this series forthright is beyond me... But these are great books to have on hand when you are feeling down and just need a chuckle or two or 300 and by far, this has got to be the best collection of that bunch! I loved the insanity of the Doctor Krusty story and a Sideshow Bob adventure is always fun. The garbage vacation story had great moments with Lenny and Carl. But it was the King of the Nerds and the elementary school stories that were the best of the bunch. They were filled with tons of inside jokes, pop culture references, and both were just plain fun. Plus, the story about the Hall of Permanent Records was framed like those old EC Comics horror titles that I love so much. Another thing that makes Simpsons Comics so great are the backup features in the back of each issue. They range from the secret files of Professor Frink to advertisements from some of your favorite Springfield stores (Springfield Tire Fire Fire Sale, anyone?) The oddest thing about a Simpsons Comic is where I find them. I hardly ever find them at actual comic shops (other than the odd dollar bin discovery.) I might sometimes find one at a used bookstore, but I almost always find these at thrift stores! Talk about oddities...

    who doesn't love the simpsons?! they're pop culture, everyone knows them, and everyone (sane, that is) loves them. i don't know why this comic book was called beach blanket bongo since there was nothing about the beach or even close to it. but who cares! it was pretty funny but halfway through, i gave up. blame it on exhaustion and lack of mood. i'm sorry matt groening, the simpsons deserves better. i prefer the cartoons, though. gee, i remember the times i used to watch th who doesn't love the simpsons?! they're pop culture, everyone knows them, and everyone (sane, that is) loves them. i don't know why this comic book was called beach blanket bongo since there was nothing about the beach or even close to it. but who cares! it was pretty funny but halfway through, i gave up. blame it on exhaustion and lack of mood. i'm sorry matt groening, the simpsons deserves better. i prefer the cartoons, though. gee, i remember the times i used to watch them everyday faithfully. and then, no more. the channel just stopped airing the simpsons, which was a tragedy and a huge mistake! PS: not counted in my 2011's 100-books goal since i felt like i didn't really read it and that i didn't put in the concentration which i always did to books i liked.

    Funny, but not terribly memorable. What I liked best was the lord of the rings in the king of the nerd story. I like the Simpsons though, so it was fun to read about then. My favorites are homer and lisa.

    If you grew up watching the Simpsons, it's like a family reunion. It was full of the most loved characters. I laughed a lot while reading. (Rhonda, Spring 2008)

    Pretty boring. It may be due to the fact that I was bored when I read it though.
