This is a cheap way to get a whole lot of Simpsons for a good price especially if you buy it second hand.
This is a bigger than Average slab of 4 of the Simpson Comics all in one.
A 126 page omnibus version containing Simpsons Comics '15, #16 #17 and #18 and makes this a really satisfying book of The Simpsons.

The stories are
"A Trip to Simpson Mountain":
"Kill-er Up With Regular (An Itchy and Scratchy short) ".
"Waitresses in the Sky":
"Apu's Incredible 96-Hour Shift (without Getting a Break)":
"What's the Frequency Simpson
"Bumblebee Man in !Ay, Que Lastima!":
"The Dame and the Clown":
"Get Fatty":
"The Quest for Yaz

Now the technical sell.
The really big pay off is that it these books gets kids reading.

As a Teacher I'm always trying to encourage children to read especially sad to say mostly boys who see reading as un cool and sadly they often have real problems reading so vicious circle. They fall further and further behind. The interest level goes too.

Now to comics. They look at the pictures follow the action then find that if they read the speech bubbles it makes it more interesting which leads to children valuing reading for enjoyment which can't be a bad thing.

Can it?

If you have a reluctant reader and these tend more to be boys then you can't do better than getting them a book that is 'cool' to read in front of their friends has a high interest level and is enjoyable.

This book was fun. it had four main and a few mini ones. thebest stories in it were theone with patty and selma losing theirjob and Bart and Lisa being stars on a tv channel. the chriatmas story was a paraodyofbevery hils 90210 and was kinda rubish. the stroywqith spring field going on a eight loss program was great. all in all if you like the simpsons or houmour in general you will love this as it has alll the humour and fun of the show.

O.K. , this is how it happens, you wait for it for ages, you are really exited, and then it turnes out to be, Well i hate to say it, because, most simpsons comics are awesome, but BORING! It has four stories, as well as a load of little ones and only one of the stories would actualy get a high ranking with me, 'A Trip To Simpson Montain'. Basicly, if you have a load of money and just want anything, get this. However if you are surviving on pocket money rations, don't wast your money. Try another simpsons comic or just wait for them on TV!

HASH(0x8dbca8d0) out of 5 stars More Simpson Fun Beyond the TV! 14 Nov. 2002
By mwreview - Published on
Format: Paperback
More super stories from the great characters of Springfield! Here's what this issue has to offer:
"A Trip to Simpson Mountain": Grandpa tells a story of his childhood days before television that sounds oddly enough like a cross between The Waltons, Beverly Hills 90210, Leave It To Beaver, The Brady Bunch, and the Partridge Family (must be a coincidence).
"Kill-er Up With Regular": A classic Itchy and Scratchy short from the "1930s".
"Waitresses in the Sky": Patty and Selma lose their jobs at the DMV and end up living with the Simpsons. Can they find the job of their dreams at Mr. Burns' airline (you'll love the insignia on the planes) or will they break under the pressure (actually, the "No Smoking" sign)? Would make a hilarious T.V. episode.
"Apu's Incredible 96-Hour Shift (without Getting a Break)": The legend is true, but not so impresive considering Apu didn't have a customer for 95 hours and 54 minutes of the famed shift.
"What's the Frequency Simpson": Similar to the T.V. episode where Lisa and Bart co-anchor a kids' news program. In this comic, Bart and Lisa take over a public access channel to start a new sensation: SimpTV. SimpTV offers such entertaining and informative programs as "Geek Patrol" hosted by Martin Prince, "Bad Boy" starring Nelson Munz, and "In the Kitchen With Wiggum" where Ralph creates many tantalizing dishes involving paste. The television elite of Springfield (aka Krusty the Klown, Troy McClure, Bumblebee Man, Kent Brockman, and Dr. Nick) try to shut the renegade channel down.
"Bumblebee Man in !Ay, Que Lastima!": Short about the trying personal life of the yellow and black striped character we thought we knew.
"The Dame and the Clown": Dragnet take-off where Otto is Detective Friday and Moe helps Marge escape an abusive relationship to return to her true love (Homer the Sailor Man).
"Get Fatty": One of the funniest of this book. This comic has a topic similar to the T.V. show where Springfield is named the nation's fattest city. In this comic, President Clinton plans to shape up the country's fattest town with the "worst cholesterol count in modern history." He sends his fitness ambassador Rainier Wolfcastle (aka McBain) to whip Springfield into shape. The worst offenders must lose 10 pounds in two weeks or face the consequences. Can they (or, more to the point, CAN HOMER) do it?
"The Quest for Yaz": This comic continues the storyline started in the T.V. episode "Three Men and a Comic Book." Milhouse's dream is to own a 1973 Carl Yastzremski baseball card when he had big sideburns--but is Milhouse willing to steal to get it?
HASH(0x8dbca954) out of 5 stars As good as the T.V. Show! 19 Feb. 2004

Wow, this was my very first Simpsons Comic Book that I have bought and trust me I was very impressed. I didn't really have high expectations for it but this really took me by suprise. This Comic is amazingly funny! You just have to get this book, trust me you won't regret it with classic strips such as "A Trip to Simpsons Mountain" where Grandpa tells his days when there was no television and "Get Fatty" where the town of Springfield is known as the most overweight town in the country and every food that now sells is nutritional and so the whole town has to lose some weight in order to be awarded a waterpark. I would get this Comic book if I were you because now I have at least a dozen Simpson Comics in my room after buying this one.

Haven't even finish yet. Others seem to like it. But I lost interest. I'll finish it up sooner or later. But I got it real cheap.

HASH(0x8dbc9c78) out of 5 stars This is one of the best comics of the decade 25 April 1998
By Paula Wolkowicz ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
The simpson have been since they appeard, the perfect match between irony and sensitivity. This familiy represents the critisim of the new american way of life. Again, Matt Groeing presents his own world through the exceptionals characters of Lisa, Homero, Bart and of course the little Maggie. As usual with humor and with a solid script, the simpson are still going... now better than ever.
