Simpsons Illustrated provides a seasonal showcase for some of the very best “Treehouse of Horror” stories from Bongo Halloweens gone by. First, the Simpsons contend with a ravenous alien plant species in “Little Shop of Homers.” Then, Apu is transported to another world where he joins forces with Kang (and not Kodos) to overthrow a surprisingly familiar despotic ruler on Rigel 7. Finally, Moe exacts a pound of flesh from Homer in “The Cask of Amontilla-D’oh.”

During a dark and stormy night, Bart and his family take refuge in a deserted gothic mansion and get a case of the heebie-jeebies. Then, Milhouse’s imagination takes flight with a geek tale from Greek mythology. Finally, Bart and Lisa must resort to sabotage when their classmates are misled into believing that there’s easy money to be had in their most recent school fundraiser.

A host of hellacious horror stories await you in with a witch’s baleful batch of Bongo brew-haha. Jim Valentino (Shadowhawk) makes a terrifying toast to the Frankenstein monster’s bride: Gerry Duggan (“Attack of the Show!”) and Phil Noto (Danger Girl) whet your appetite with the tale of an innocent woman forced into spawning the son of Satan; Chris and Shane Houghton (Reed Gunther) fill you with dread as they lead the Simpson family to a cabin in the woods; and much more.

Bart and Nelson fight over the new girl in school, but something tells us they are not being sincere. Then, the newest designer of the be-all and end-all in haut couture is none other than Maggie Simpson. Plus, Bart scribes and scribbles a new “Angry Dad” and Sergio Aragonés magically materializes another “Maggie’s Crib.”
