BONGO COMICS FOR AUGUST

BART SIMPSON COMICS #43

By Bates, Kress, Shaw!, Asprec, Rivette and Santiago.

Lisa Simpson moves into the spotlight this month in Bart Simpson Comics. First up, Lisa gets even with Bart when he threatens her most cherished form of artistic expression -- the saxophone. Then Lisa tries to be one of the girls with Sherri and Terri with mixed results. And finally, after a moment of uncensored exasperation, Lisa finds herself under the tutelage of an unexpected and unexpurgated authority figure, Lunchlady Doris!

32 pages, $2.99.

SIMPSONS COMICS #145

By Rogers, Dixon and Costanza.

Bart has a "graphic" novel idea and pursues his lifelong dream of owning a comic book store, much to the dismay of the Comic Book Guy. Meanwhile across town, the Springfield Retirement Castle is on the brink of collapse. If it closes for good, where's Grampa to go? Then back on the homefront Marge puts her sharply-honed household know-how to work to solve a mystery.

32 pages, $2.99.

SIMPSONS COMICS TREASURE TROVE #1

By Matt Groening.

Bongo boasts its very best in a brand-new, pocket-sized digest, brimming with classic Simpsons stories and loaded with laughs. This new quarterly series offers 64-pages packed with comic gems including the Carl Barks-inspired high sea adventure tale "Uncle Burns"; Bart's tricked-out version of Mark Twain's stories on the mighty Mississippi; a costume drama featuring Bartman; and a high-octane, vintage, Itchy & Scratchy short!

64 pages, $3.99.

THE SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR VOLUME 5: DEAD MAN'S JEST TP

By Matt Groening.

Master of mirthful mayhem, Matt Groening, meets the Monsters of Rock (Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, and Rob Zombie) in a heavy metal, Halloween-inspired rock 'n' roll odyssey of head-banging, tongue- wagging, dead-raising frights and frivolity. Even "Mr. Nice Guy" Pat Boone gets in a "metal mood" with a twisted tale of dastardly demons and righteous redemption. From donut batter to ghoulish splatter, you'll be tricked and treated to a chaotic comic collection chock-full of thunder-clapping hell spawn, chainsaw-toting monkeys, televisions run amuck, bible camp ghost stories, lime-flavored Squishee monsters, toilets of the damned, vampire tombs, the Evil Eye, and a very special tribute to EC Comics, the forebears of witty horror and suspense comic storytelling. It's the Halloween Jam of the Century that'll blow your mind and rock your soul!

128 pages, $15.95.
