Bongo’s hard at work gearing up for the May release of our next One-Shot Wonder, Bart Simpson’s Pal, Milhouse #1, and we thought we’d share a little in-progress artwork to whet your appetite.  Here’s a bite-sized portion of the image that will eventually grace our back cover.  It comes to us courtesy of in-house art phenom Jason Ho (can you believe he’s only 13 years old?)  


Right now, it’s in super rough format, but after Jason finishes the penciling phase, the artwork will go straight to Nathan Kane, who’ll complete the painting in all its digital splendor. It’s going to be Milhouse as you’ve never seen him before!


We’ll post more images as the artwork progresses.  In the meantime, enjoy this glimpse into the Bongo creative process!

In the first of Bongo Comics’ soon to be legendary Simpsons One-Shot Wonders, Ralph Wiggum takes center stage. In his first solo outing, Ralph has a day off of school, is left home alone, and becomes a role model to a new kid in town.  Add in some short features by Sergio Aragonés and watch the chaos ensue.

Bongo Comics Group began publishing its quarterly, 64-page, Simpsons Classics magazine way back in 2004. Over the next eight years and thirty issues, we reprinted the first sixty issues of Simpsons Comics. Now, rather than sticking to the tried and true chronological rollout of our hard to find back issue of our main “Simpsons” title, we thought it was time to shake things up a bit.. First of all, we are comic book people, not magazine people. And secondly, why just bring back stories from one comic book title when we have a whole host of other books with awesome stories just ripe to be rediscovered by new readers. With that in mind, we are announcing the return of a whole new Simpsons Illustrated.


What’s Simpson Illustrated you ask? Well, way back in 1990, Matt Groening ventured into publishing with a fan magazine filled with “Simpsons” news, interviews, comic stories and  games. Those ten, quarterly, magazine–sized  issues of Simpsons Illustrated along with the January 1993 one-shot Simpsons Comics and Stories were actually the birth parents of what you now know as Bongo Comics Group. So, returning to our roots, we have melded the two formats to create a new 48-page comic chockfull of cover to cover comic stories from a variety of our historical comic titles, including: Simpsons Comics, Itchy & Scratchy Comics, Bartman, Radioactive Man, Krusty Comics, Lisa Comics, Bart Simpson, Treehouse of Horror and Simpsons Super Spectacular. Each issue of Simpsons Illustrated is a handpicked  grab bagof the very best of Bongo.


The very first issue of Simpsons Illustrated finds Principal Skinner revealing some little known and secret stories from  Springfield Elementary School’s fabled permanent record room (Simpsons Comics #75), a world-record setting tale about Ralph Wiggum (Bart Simpson #9), and the classic, “Lo, There Shall Come a Bartman from Matt Groening’s first “Simpson” comic book offering, Simpsons Comics & Stories #1.

Way back in Bart Simpson #50, we started bringing famous artists on board our Bart book in order to introduce younger readers to some of the coolest comic creators in the business today. Then, we took Bart Simpson monthly. The best and boldest Bart Simpson books ever are on their way this year! Starting it all off, Bart proves an old wives’ tale true: If you make a face, it might stay that way! Then, Bartman (aka Bart) and Radioactive Man (aka Rainier Wolfcastle) team-up for an adventure that’s out of this world…and off this planet! Then, enjoy another installment of  Sergio Aragonés’ “Maggie’s Crib.”

Our countdown to Simpsons Comics #200 has begun, and with a little art director magic, it has never looked better. This month Sideshow Bob returns to Springfield in the company of the rightful creator of  Itchy and Scratchy, the hobo Chester J. Lampwick, but  when the billionaire with a bindle goes missing, Bart suspects a certain sociopathic second banana. Meanwhile, Lisa makes it her mission to save the Springfield Library.

Ripped from the headlines of Playbill magazine, a cautionary tale of superhero mega-musicals gone awry! When Claude Kane III is approached to finance a singing spectacular based on the exploits of Radioactive Man, he soon finds himself doing double duty while trying to save the production from a director whose vision can’t be contained, a rock ‘n’ roll composer whose ego needs to be kept in check, and a budget that continues to skyrocket, along with protecting the helpless cast and crew caught in the middle.
