I got simpsons comics #123 and #124. #124 sucks but #123 was good.
#124 was, at one point, my least favorite issue ever. In the seven or so months since it's release I've re-read it quite a bit...I think it's reasonably good.

I bought 'Simpsons Super Spectacular' today. It was pretty good but what the hell was up with that 'League of Women Voters'? Another excuse to put a certain person in and it's been thrown out the window. Nice art, though.
Thanks to CousinMerl for this great sig!
I need to start buying the Simpsons Presents series again. I've missed quite a few, since the US release I've been quite interested in reading Super Spectacular #2 but I missed it (email me scans anyone? :P) and that Mayor Maggie story that comes out soon.
got US #130 today the one where the simpsons sell all their stuff. it was pretty average. i prefered the new futurama
I got Simpsons #129, #130, Futurama #31 and Bart #35. The Bart was the best, the two Simpsons ones both get around 7/10, Artie was unexpected...and I didn't find anything wrong with the "force field" inks in #129. The Futurama issue was promising, but I'm sick of how they use Kazaleh for each issue.
Synopsis for #132/#133 (the two part Mr. Burns issue)
Part One -- In a Simpsons Comics milestone, Bongo Comics Group presents the first story so big it takes two issues to tell! Mr. Burns goes to a spa to be a rejuvenated and comes back a new man -- literally! Who is this pretender and why is everybody taken...
Part Two -- When we last saw Mr. Burns, he was desperate and destitute in a foreign land while an imposter squandered his fortune at home. In the conclusion to the epic two-part tale, 'A Brand New Burns,' the results are senses-shattering,...
I was looking forward to it when sources listed Ian Boothby as being the author of it, however many sites have now changed the information and Chuck Dixon has been revealed as the official writer of the two issues. His stories have been relatively great. The downside: it's gonna be drawn by Costanza.
Is Stevie still around? I'm sure he'd have liked the idea of a two-part Burns story.
Hey that sounds pretty good. I think the comic could definitely do with more multi parters. I mean...multi parters and comics just sort of go together. Costanza is also capable of at least remaining kinda stable, although its a gamble. If the plot is good it'll counter that.Originally Posted by Ivan P
Oh I did check out 130 but I didn't buy it, this month's been kind of hellish. It was okay though, I liked the idea of bringing Artie back for a plot like that.
^ Aww, I really enjoy your reviews, Kiyosuki! I hope you will pick them up as I'd love to see what you think. They always seem to reflect what I think
I'll pick up the comics later and post a review asap.
A tribute to Bart Simpson
You think THAT's bad? What about that time when I was turned into a Tetris block?
As long as he presents something equal in quality to The Flunky! (Simpsons #119) and Baby Got Back At Burns (Bart #32), which I thought were his best works.Originally Posted by Kiyosuki
A lotta people here seem to dislike George.. I mean John Costanza's art. I myself think it's decent. He's not great, but ok. There's much worse examples on sloppy drawn off-model art in other issues. Like in some of the stories in the last three or four THOH comics.
The point of the THOH comics is to allow popular artists from other companies to have a chance at drawing the Simpsons; they're not supposed to be on model. Research facts before opening your mouth next time. Thanks.Originally Posted by Itchy
No Thanks. I know that and that has always seemed like a bad decision to me. My guess is that sales on Thoh was going down the hill and this was Bongo's atempt to make to comics atract more readers. Wich in some cases work. There's lotsa non-simpsons artists out there that can draw them pretty well. But unforutantley there's a lot who can't draw them, or draw at all.Originally Posted by Ivan P
Personally I think it's a bit late to complain; they've been using outside artists and writers since the fifth issues, which was eight years ago.
So if the show or the regular comics had been bad for several years, you would just give up and accept the crappiness?Originally Posted by Ivan P
But it's a personal opinion if you think it's crap or not; the only art I dislike in the THOH is the Xt'tapalatakettle story in #5, as well as the Blood Curse story in #12. Sure, I'll admit that I really like it when they mix in some stuff with actual Bongo artists, but I have no problems with outside artists.Originally Posted by Itchy
And in reply to the comment about 'if the show or the comics had been bad for several years...', issues #70 to #95 (a span of about two and a half years) is, IMO, the worst time for the comics. Most stories were awful; however, I kept buying them in hope they'd improve, and they have. As for the show, I've disliked it since the start of Season 17, but still watch in hope that something will improve like they did with the comics.
I just thought of this today, what are they going to put in the place of ads when the comics with ads get reprinted? The only type of ads are ones that are fake ones.
Uh...they never reprint ads...EVER. It will just be reprinted as an uninterrupted story.Originally Posted by Zim999
Just a quick heads up, Issue 131 is going to have Spacecoyote's contribution (the girl who did the famous anime-styled picture.) according to her webpage on Deviantart.
I was right Ivan.
Oooh, her contribution must be part of the Japanese version of Simpsons Comics; the issue is based around how the comics are apparently presented in Japan, Belgium and Mexico.Originally Posted by Kiyosuki
Guess who I talked to earlier? I'm not telling.
Well if you're not telling I can't really ask. lol
Some people from Bongo are coming to a comic book shop I visit sometmes though next week, I'm gonna check that out.
Alright then...Ian Boothby. I stumbled across this little area of the world wide web in which numerous folks from Bongo hang out. I feel very privileged
And to clear up any confusion; Bongo screwed up the synopsis for Simpsons #132, saying it was written by Ian Boothby. The second part of the story, in #133, is listed as a Chuck Dixon story...Ian told me earlier that he didn't write #132 and doesn't know who does. I take it that it is a Dixon story.
Well thats pretty cool. If I remember haven't you been in contact with them for a while now?Originally Posted by Ivan P
Our #133 came out in the UK today (the one with all the people falling from the sky - the story's called 'The X men'), and I have a few good things to point out;
-The guy who answers the letters appears to have got his act together. He seemed a lot more patient in this issue.
- I saw someone I liked! Well, his head... but everyone around me says I should be happy with that.
The bad, however, consists of;
-Too much CBG. What else is new?
-Another strange appearance by Ned Flanders! This time, in the company of his new groupie, he tells Homer he is going to church - on a Saturday (hey, Ned, how about actually going on a Sunday and giving me something to enjoy?)
In the Uk #133 issue there was mention of a new Uk comic called the Simpsons Treasure Trove. its meant to be a collection of all the 'classic stories'. out next month sometime. sorry i dont have the comic with me just now so this is all i can remember about it. theirs more info in the 'eye on springfield' bit of #133
Yeah, I saw that. I might buy it, it depends on whether I can find it or not.
