Summary

Summary

Bongo raises the bar with the premier volume of its brand new Simpsons Comics trade series Simpsons Comics Colossal Compendium: Volume 1.

The Simpsons notoriety will be hard to keep under wraps with this brand new collection of comic stories that will catapult them once again onto the world stage. This new series, Colossal Compendium, will maintain the same recognizable series name throughout its run. Each volume will also have a unique name and volume number. Each collection will have a minimum of 5 comics, chosen carefully and specifically because the comics work together to provide a deeper, darker meaning than each on its own.

Each new volume boasts upgraded heavier paper, and increased page count to 176 pages and includes a unique and collectible paper craft. As the series progresses, fans will be able to assemble their own three-dimensional version of the city of Springfield and usher in a paper paradise! Volume 1 kicks it off with a replica of Moe's Tavern. The series will also feature artwork on the spine that creates an image of the Simpsons family when the volumes are aligned on the book shelf. The series will ultimately encapsulate Simpsons Comics issues #106 - #199.

It is all the Simpsons Comics fun that fans have come to expect wrapped in an invigorating new package.


Author Notes

Matt Groening, 1954 - Matt Groening was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He moved to Los Angeles in 1980 to start writing the comic strip "Life in Hell" for the newspaper he worked for. The strip had premiered in 1977 and appears in over 250 newspapers worldwide.

Groening got his big break when the Fox television network was looking for a filler for "The Tracy Ullman Show." James L. Brooks had seen some of the "Life in Hell" strips and offered Groening a chance to create 30 second skits for the show. The skits were so well received that the newly titled "The Simpsons" for which Groening was now creator and executive producer of, debuted on Fox as a half hour Christmas special on December 17, 1989 and as a regular series on January 14, 1990.

In 1993, Groening formed "Bongo Comics Group" which publishes "Simpsons Comics," "Itchy and Scratchy Comics," "Bartman," "Radioactive Man," "Lisa Comics" and "Krusty Comics." In 1995, he founded and published "Zongo Comics," which included "Jimbo" and "Fleener" Groening oversees all of the licensing and merchandising of the "The Simpsons." He is also a best selling author, publishing books such as "Life in Hell," "Work is Hell" and "School is Hell," based on his "Life in Hell" comic strip, and "Bart Simpson's Guide to Life" based on "The Simpsons" animation.

Groening is also creator and Executive Producer of "Futurama," another animated prime time television show.
