What's new in the world of Bongo?

By Matt Groening  & Misc.


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!

What Would Homer Do? Now all you need to do is ask your smart phone’s personal assistant and navigating system, and you, too, can be like Homer Simpson! And with everyone going around town asking WWHD?, Homer is having an identity crisis of his own. And if that wasn’t enough, Marge finds a new calling as the new Springfield Courthouse sketch artist.

In our SPECIAL DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES ISSUE, SpongeBob dreams…of runaway pants…of a giant Gary…and of a powerful entity whose subconscious controls Bikini Bottom's very reality! So, yeah, it's pretty surreal, even for SpongeBob. Also: Maris Wicks (PRIMATES) brings you true facts about nightmare creatures of the deep. All this plus the talents of Bob Flynn (BRAVEST WARRIORS) James Kochalka (GLORKIAN WARRIOR), and Gregg Schigiel (X-BABIES).

If you like zombies…we got ZOMBIES! It’s an all-out ZOMBIEFEST this month at Bongo!

And Bart and his friends must fend off the shopping dead while trapped at the Springfield Mall. Then, Homer and Bart must protect the nuclear power plant from a zombie invasion. Finally…a ZOMBIENADO strikes Springfield! (Need we say more?) It’s a lighthearted, night of the living dead, laugh riot!

Bart pulls a prank on the entire town and discovers that the people he punked can be a lot more forgiving than he ever imagined…and now he has them right where he wants them.  Suckers!
