Here it is, the final to this three issue epic.  We seen in past issues how  desperate comic companies try to sell their comics with gimmicks and how they brush off the readers with their proposals. Today, we finally get to see what is the big build up to Radioactive Man comic in the Bart Simpson comic, all of this in an 25 issue comic, meaning I can post an 8th scan here and still obey the 3rds rule. So enjoy this supplement from Simpsons Super Spectacular #9.

The comic starts out with Bart and friends recounting past events that happen to their hero, like how he became invisible to everyone in the world, just like a cliche Silver-Age Superman story. They also recount....

Wow! Look at Bart's face. Lets see the AVGN and the NC top THAT expression of annoyance and hatred.

Meanwhile, back the comic-company owned by a clown (would that consider a good or bad thing? Considering it's comics and all). Krusty and Lindsey Naegle are celebritanting of their first issue of Radioactiveman being publish.

Yeah, lay down those comic-fan blues, my brothers!

The boys buy the new issue, sat down together to enjoy, until they find ungodly WRONG with the comic....

NERDS!!!! Also, take a look guy in the red jacket... is that.... Fry without hairgell?

That's right.  Krusty's and Naegle's great plan of "Nothing" speaks true, as they publish NOTHING but panels and word bubbles and let the fans make up their own stories to satisfy them.... People are BUYING full price for a comic book that they not only have to think and draw the story.... You know what Linkara would say.... THIS COMICBOOK IS PURE BULLS**T!!!

Lisa inspires Bart to turn his outrage into a message, and he does....

This builds up a s Ms. Naegle struts into work, thinking that the plan was such a success that she would get a big fat promotion. What she gets is a loud, and most like wine and cigar smelling, "You're Fired!" from Krusty. As second "issue" (if you can even sarcastically call it that) sales are off the charts and on a tape on yellow note-page. (Really). Krusty then presents his partner in comics with an issue that Bart has mass produce for the town. Wish I could post the whole thing, but the limit forbids me. So I will just give the crowning page of awesome of it.

It starts out with Radioactive find the entire city is gawking a "Big Fat Nothing" The only way to free them is to present them with "real mindless, heart-stopping action!"

I don't know how to describe this. It's not perfect or realistic, but it still feels like it's professional done. It's like a your personal doddle
 you do in High School in a full color spread, which makes it even more awesome. Is there a word for this kinda of art-style? It's sort of like a novice level done on a professional level.

And let me end with two pages of Kent Brockman summing up the big moral of story and states what everyone thinks of the head editors of DC/Marvel.

Uh, when was the last time Nelson "Haw-Haw" in the show....

In the end, Krusty actually hires creative talent, and as a thank you from the creative team of the comic, for Bart showing how a comic SHOULD be, they make him a character in the comic! Basically a "Robin" uniform with a "B" instead of a "R". Here is an unofficial link to it.

This ends the story that took three simple issue to tell. I may post that one issue where everyone in Springfield take on the new "writers" of comics from destroying the world of  Radioactive Man.

All in all an amazing satirical look at the comic industry. The only thing I think they missed a chance to make fun of is the "superstar" system both the big two seem to have in place where one writer (Brian Bendis and Geoff Johns) essentially writes EVERYTHING and have the ability to prevent other writers from messing with 'their' stories.

Well, he does it in the movie, so not that long ago, all things considered.

::cough:: Well, it isn't that bad yet...except for that one infamous Alpha Flight 'Snowblind' issue where John Byrne's prank was to draw..nothing. At worst, we must 'fanwank', come up with nonsensical explanations for mystifying leaps of plot. Its not always a bad thing. Like the intro to Swamp Thing I scanned by Moore, we always come in in the middle of a story.

I can think of two occasions when the writer decided to nearly break the fourth wall addressing reader confusions. In the Avengers, Jarvis writes fans how Tony Stark went from being a murderer, a teenager, then to being an adult..that needed an explanation. In Green Lantern, the questions Gerald Jones had Hal answering about trivia were too pointless for me to even remember. It was boring and a waste of time.

I feel the same way about the past history of BND Spidermanverse. I care how Harry came back to life (and I found the explanation better than the explanation for Norman's return) and I'm curious how Peter lost his extra powers and what the heck HE thinks happened. I don't think they need an event YEAR OF THE SPIDER-MAN to explain it. What I don't want is a drawn out intricate tangle of continuity trying to explain what happened in the new backhistory. Because it didn't. We know what actually happened. Anything other than "Mephisto did it" is bullshit. Going on at length for boring, irritating, insulting bullshit is..wanking off.

Wow. I just realized it. In the last panel the third poster on the cubicles. That beer stained radioactive symbol it's a Watchmen reference.
