Simpsons Comics #110

Thanks to Excalibur Comics, Cards, & Games in Texarkana, Texas (or is that Arkansas?) I was able to acquire a copy of Simpsons Comics #110 yesterday. Special thanks to the highly knowledgable Colin, who answered my son's unending stream of Heroclix questions (and who remained amiable even after my son started an impromptu fortune-telling session with a 10-sided die and predicted a variety of horrible fates for him).

My review: If you only read one comic book to help distract you from the knowledge that you are a Hurricane Rita refugee and your house won't be livable again for at least 3 weeks... make it Simpsons Comics #110. Seriously, this issue is highly entertaining and cheered me up immediately. The final videogame-themed splash page alone made it worth the cover price (for spoiler details, check out the Comments below). Ian Boothby has done it again.

This week: The previously discussed Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror #10.

For reasons that make perfect sense in the context of the story, we see Marge Simpson as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Homer as Donkey Kong, Lisa as Sonic the Hedgehog, and Bart and Flanders as Mario and Luigi.
