The fifth volume in the sought-after Simpsons Comics Colossal Compendium series is bursting with classic comic strips featuring everyone's favorite family--The Simpsons. Included is a collectible, one-of-a-kind, pullout paper craft of one of Springfield's favorite landmarks.

Bart starts his own humor magazine, and it isn't long before Springfield's resident funnyman Krusty the Clown wants in on the business. Then, donut-lovers Homer Simpson and Chief Clancy Wiggum take over each other's deliciously do-nothing jobs. And speaking of switcheroos, Bart boards the wrong airplane and finds himself mistaken for local Springshire lad . . . Brit Simpson. And when Ned Flanders opens his own friendly tavern, Homer finds himself torn between two bartenders, the ever-surly Moe or everyone's favorite neighborino.

Throw in an alien abduction, some home disrepair, a pseudo-scientific trip to an alternate reality, a ghostly superhero pairing, and a rescue mission beneath the nuclear power plant, and you have the most colossal compendium yet. And make that dream of a personal home theater a reality with your very own scale model of Springfield's classic movie house, the Aztec Theater.

The Colossal Compendium series boasts upgraded heavier paper, an increased page count of 176 pages, and includes a unique and collectible paper craft. Volume 5 features the Aztec Theater. 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!
