New York, NY; February 15, 1993 — Aye carumba! The Simpsons, America's favorite cartoon family, are set to conquer yet another bastion of lowbrow culture -- comic books! A special collector's editon of Simpsons Comics and Stories will hit newsstands and comic book stores on February 16th. This is the first comic book from Simpsons creator and renowned cartoon doodler Matt Groening.

The entire Simpson family will participate in the new venture. Said Lisa, "Comic books are a classic American art form. It's an honor to have one of our own." Bart plans to buy multiple copies of the issue for investment purposes, explaining "It's a collector's item, man. A must-buy double-bagger!" Homer, meanwhile, expressed hopes that the move to the new medium will enable him to meet Wonder Woman. "Don't tell Marge," he added.

Simpsons Comics and Stories reveals the secret origin of Springfield's own costumed crusader, Bartman, and his brain-boggling battle to save fellow hero Radioactive Man. Also featured in this issue: Graffiti artist El Barto goes to jail! Maggie saves Springfield from a nuclear meltdown! Lisa turns to crime! Itchy & Scratchy's handy hints for power tool safety!

Groening's creative partners for Simpsons Comics and Stories are his long-time collaborators and fellow comic book fans Steve Vance, Cindy Vance and Bill Morrison.

Newsstand circulation is 400,000, at a price of $2.50 each. A special edition of Simpsons Comics and Stories, poly-bagged with a full-color “Radioactive Man Meets Bartman” poster, will be available only in comic book shops.

Simpsons Comics and Stories is a publication of Simpsons Illustrated, the official magazine of the Simpsons, published four times a year by Welsh Publishing Group, the country’s largest children’s magazine publisher.
