Gah! So. many pages. Can't possibly. Review. Spock.

Well, you can't say that Bongo doesn't give you your money's worth. Keeping with the theme of its television source material, issue one-hundred of Simpsons Comics is a clip issue. What the publishers have done is mixed new material and old material into one juicy package.

Now, many may complain that they're getting less for what they paid because after all haven't we seen the material before. Well, yes, and no. Besides, it is Simpsons related, and therefore it's bound to be funnier than say a clip comic book containing all the positions in which Gwen Stacy and Norman Osborn had sex.

There's also a comic book theme in the book that's underlined, and the quest of Bart and Lisa to find the answers are genuinely interesting as well as culturally significant in the explanation. You also get an obscenely detailed double page spread of a comic book convention Springfield styled by the legendary Sergio Argones. Really, how can you ask for anything more?
