Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
You'll find your favorite Simpsons moments, as well as new adventures featuring Springfield's finest, in Simpsons Comics Royale. The book includes ten stories in the form of lengthy comic strips, some of which have aired as Simspons episodes. But fans certainly won't mind the repeats, since seeing the episodes in print offers a golden opportunity to examine every hilarious little detail (and there are many). Interspersed throughout these cartoons are essays from creator Matt Groening, who generously offers advice for aspiring cartoonists and reveals little-known facts about members of the Simpsons clan and himself. Among the topics covered in Groening's 15 essays are why Bart has such spiky hair; which profession Groening held before he created America's wackiest family; which of the Simpsons is most beloved by their creator; and which television and cartoon character inspired Bart. But the highlight of Simpsons Comics Royale -- aside from the brilliant cartoons, of course -- is undoubtedly the essay called "47 Secrets About The Simpsons, a Poem of Sorts, and Some Filler." This essay's title alone is enough to make us Simpsons fanatics drool with excitement, like Homer contemplating a jelly donut.
