Simpsons Super Spectacular #12
Bongo Comics (no date given, just go with Jan 2011)WRITER: Ian Boothby PENCILERS: John Delaney (story 1); Hilary Barta (story 2) INKER: Andrew Pepoy COLORISTS: Nathan Hamill (story 1); Art Villanueva & Nathan Kale LETTERER: Karen Bates EDITOR: Bill Morrison
In the first story, Bartman and Houseboy gain access to a cell phone that gives you different superpowers every time you use it. Unfortunately, it also turns Millhouse evil. In the back-up story, Bartman accidentally drops the family laundry into one of Frink’s projects, creating Simpsons-like liquid metal robots while an accident at the Power Plant created a nuclear food monster.
What they got right: The first story is a parody of “Dial H For Hero” while the second parodies the Metal Men. Both are fun and humorous.
What they got wrong: No Radioactive Man. Good as the Bartman stories are, I really get the title for Radioactive Man.
Recommendation: A good comic parody that’s worth picking up.
