To highlight the how awesome this comic series is, I'm going to post pages from the 3 issue story arc that covers the story of how Bart's favorite superhero, Radioactive Man, just got bought out by Krusty and announce the BIG change to help sell comics better...

First, from Simpsons Comics #155, it basically shows how repetitive comics can really be...

Next, following up the story arc in "Simpsons COmics Presents: Bart Simpsons #48", as it covers Bart, Milhouse, and Martin taking some action to Krusty's plans....

But first, we get these 2 pages that made me dread what the suits at Marvel are thinking now with the success of the Avengers movie... they try to hype up a big change to the comic altogether, drawing in attention and sales like never before, but saying nothing about it

Krusty makes the promise the change will be good... but you know what Krusty's promises are... remember his daughter... or his time as a senator?

We finally get to see what the big change is to the RadioactiveMan comics in Simpsons Super Spectacular #9, and guess what...

It was NOTHING! Basically, Krusty and Neagal's plan was to let the reader of the comic make up his own story and art so they would have NOTHING to complain about. Well, being the mischievius devil that he is, Bart made his own comics, and gave them to everyone in Springfield..

And that was the Simpsons in comic form. Pick up an issue if you like. It hits satire as well as the show did back in their prime, and has alot of comic references to make any nerd chuckle.

Fun, though scan 4 is a duplicate of scan 3

Before I scrolled down further and realized it was the same scan, I actually thought that was part of the joke. =p

There is a terrible, terrible irony to the Simpsons property, of all things, mocking an industry that relies on repetition and the likes. Disregarding the fact that the Simpsons was definitely funnier around ten years ago, that show's always been about repetition, and even more so these days, right down to regular as clockwork Sideshow Bob appearances.

The Simpson's comic has been leagues above the TV show for quite a while now.

I figured that was the case, but there's still a distinct irony in play.

at least the Simpsons never claims to be doing something that will change things forever

Well.. No. But the sad thing is that the Simpsons DID change things forever, and now they've settled into a really rather pathetic rut which is just as bad as the distinct 'status quo is god' nature of comics, if not worse.

Is this one of the Gail Simone Simpsons comics? I know she started out doing those.

This has Batton Lash's signature "lecturing the reader to make his point about the awfulness of modern comics" move all over it.

Looks like he finally is acting out his dream of kill all (super)humans.

I'm pretty sure that remark about having killed off Radioactive Man once is a nod to the first issue of Bongo's Bartman mini-series from the early 90s.

I'm also seeing a lot of the supporting cast Bongo's Radioactive Man series making cameos.

No... basically the publishing company announced the Death of Radioactive Man, Bart found the writer who created of the character being pretty distraught and essentially found a way to shame the company into bringing him back in a story written by the creator.
