    Thumbs Up 30th anniversary magazine released 4th September.

    Al Jean posted this on Twitter so thought you guys might like to see.





    From what I can gather this is a US only release, however thought some of you guys might like to see this.

    Is anyone going to grab a copy?

    US only release? Damn.

    It might show up over in the UK eventually though.

    Wow! This magazine is so cool, even though the show was made in 1989.

    Looks pretty neat (just too bad that's it's an US exclusive; oh, and you might want to fix the link as the pic isn't showing up in the post, @Welcome to Moe's). It is strange that they are releasing it now when the anniversary isn't until next year.

    I'll save the pics and re-edit the post, it's mad cause I can see them and the same has happened with Youtube video's too I've linked/embedded, people hgave said they can't see them but they're there for me so it confuses me lol

    I've noticed the emoji's aren't showing up on the forum either, the smileys and things. I'll amend it now anyway as it seems some people can't see the images direct from the tweets.

    Maybe, Newsweek is a US paper I think, I'm not fully sure but I don't know if their publications will be released over here?

    Cool cover. I found it on ebay with international shipping. It's kind of expensive though.

    It's not out yet though, I'm guessing that was a pre order but yeah, they will over charge on there, specially while it's new.

    Newsweek 30th Anniversary Simpsons Magazine

    I was at Vons (a California grocery store) Saturday and my brother saw Newsweek magazine's special edition of the 30th anniversary of 'The Simpsons'...he bought it for me.

    It includes photos of the premiere of The Simpsons Movie and 7-11 coverted into the Kwik-E-Mart, Simpsons guest voices, Treehouse of Horror, and voices of the characters done by the cast of the show.

    @Brad Lascelle: Can’t say for certain since I don’t have it. I know the cover art is from a surprisingly tricky-to-find promotional image they did for the 600th episode.

    There's also this thread

    https://www.nohomers.net/showthread....-4th-September

    Anyway, it's strange that they released this so soon (as the anniversary isn't until next year) and that's it's an US exclusive (this definitely should've been an wide release around the world).

    Merged the two threads

    Al Jean tweeted an amazon link https://www.amazon.com/Newsweek-Simp...rds=B07GW2MZRP

    Thought about it but not sure if it's worth $10.99

    I found it at Lowe’s and bought it. Haven’t read it yet, but through a skim, it seems like it’s just highlights throughout the show’s history for the most part.

    I’m not sure. Most of the art is just drawings of episode scenes, but there could be some original stuff.

    I wasn’t planning on going out of my way to get this, but I found it a couple weeks ago at Walmart as I was about to check out, so I was like “Eh why not”, I still haven’t actually opened up the pages except a two second glimpse, when I was buying it.

    I managed to get one sent over from he US, it's really good and has a good insight and articles (my thread about season 8 in the other section in regards to why it's the best season was taken from an article in this magazine), it's good to get as it's also going to be a collectible thing too due to only being available for a limited time, once the show is done with it'll be a collectible part of the history so is worth getting for anyone really.

    Looks like Amazon.com is selling it, although at a slightly inflated price (US$15 - and it appears that there is already a bootleg version being sold as well).

    As for releasing it now, it's "celebrating" the 30th year, not the 30th anniversary. That seems to be the trend now with celebrations, at least in the USA - example: "Super Bowl 50" was a big thing, but nobody mentioned "the 50th Anniversary of the Super Bowl." Sometimes, they even call the 25th (for example) occurrence of a particular annual event the "25th Anniversary."
