Simpsons Comics Extravaganza by Matt Groening.

Welcome to the remarkable first four issues of Simpsons Comics, brought to you by the Bongo Comics Group, a small but overachieving band of merry artists, designers, lawyers and publicists. Their work looks effortless, but the Bongo gang has shed several droplets of sweat, a few droplets of blood, and perhaps even a couple of tears of joy in the making of these comics.

Don’t worry, however: All Bongo bodily secretions have been wiped off the original art so as not to distract you from your entertainment experience.

As Bart might say, “We’re proud of these comics, man.” As Lisa might say, “Damn, they’re good.”

And as Marge might say, “I don’t want you sitting up in that tree house all day reading comic books! You’ll ruin your eyes!” From Goodreads.
