Bongo presents an explosive, annual comic collection in a dynamite new format – an oversized, 96-page trade paperback with loads of highly-charged, Simpson-sational stories from cover to cover. In a tale neither fit for man nor animal, Homer Simpson becomes television’s newest reality star as his bottomless appetite and cast iron stomach are put to the test and pushed to the limits week after week on “Man Vs. Beast Vs. Food.” Bart and Ralph are teamed together as part of a new program called Kid Cops, but when it comes down to it–which one is the good cop, and which one is the bad cop? Professor Frink designs a robot based on Bart that is the perfect prankster, making Bart obsolete. (Can Springfield’s original jokester fight the future?) Then the subhuman grade cuisine in the Springfield Elementary cafeteria is replaced by the best that the school food service industry has to offer, making the students healthier and smarter and leading to one thing…world domination! (And you thought we were going to say better state test scores.) And with a little help from Lisa...Homer is on the road to a promotion at the nuclear power plant. Finally Bart and Milhouse take to the high seas when they stowaway on Captain McCallister’s boat and set sail for exotic ports. (Oh…did we forget to mention the mutiny?) This bountiful and bomb-tastic annual will blow your mind to smithereens!
