Following many of the sections in this document are notes about the publishers and the printing history in that particular country. In addition we are in the process of adding detailed supplement pages for each section that provides table of contents, descriptions, back covers or wraparound covers and detailed credits, publisher and printing information. The detailed page for the US/UK/Australia Comic Reprint pages has been published and continues to be expanded. More are coming!

We are continuously seeking out information about older foreign Simpsons publications. It's astonishing to think that books just published in the last 25 years are already lost and forgotten, and should anyone think that in this "day and age" that will no longer occur think of the future as we move towards electronic publishing and the distinction between self-published works and formally published works begins to blur [he visibly shudders].


I have to begin here by thanking my better half; for putting up with all the cra effects of this; the clutter, the expense, and worse of all, the time it takes to maintain this and other lists.

Then I have to thank the unsung heroes behind all this; Bongo, the publishing arm behind and owned by Matt Groening. How they manage to keep up with all the comics, books, games and anything else that gets thrown at them in support of our favorite family, Futurama and Life In Hell is rather astonishing, but we are thankful for the quality and quantity of the work they do. Best wishes on their new endeavors as they branch out further! (Did someone say... SpongeBob? Isn't Bongo already the world's largest user of yellow ink?)
