"Simpsons Comics, Belly Buster" is a collection of stories captured from approximately 6 issues of "The Simpsons" comic books. Clocking in at 176 pages this book provides great value for a graphic novel, especially when factoring in Amazon's usual discounting. The problem with "The Simpsons" comics in general though is that they are typically not close to being as funny as even the most mediocre episode of the TV show. Therefore I would not recommend this book for purchase if you are expecting the same high quality of humor found in the TV series, but if you are fine with slightly weaker writing then by all means you'd be hard pressed to find a better value of reading for the Simpsons fan.
My son LOVES this book
My son loves the Simpsons and wasn't too into reading. I thought what better way to get him into reading than buying him books about his beloved Simpsons. Sure enough he sat down with it and read it cover to cover without getting off the couch.

gotta luv the Simpsons! this comic book is great!
Woo-hoo!!! All right! a Simpsons comic book! me and my bud both luv the Simpsons TV show and when my friend had seen a Simpsons comic book she just had to have it. so i took the liberty of ordering it off of here b/c you get it so much cheeper than at the store. she luved it and so did i.
it has several small stories w/ the same laughs and crazy adventures the yellow family goes thru on TV. and if youre very familiar w/ the characters youll notice their small quirks and way of talking...like Dr Hibert and his laugh at the end of his sentences...ah hee hee hee hee!!! ;-D
one of my friends favorites was "Homer vs. the Wallpaper"...typical Homer trying to "do it himself", redoing maggies bedroom walls and creates a bunch of laughs getting tangled up in wallpaper and glue...great fun!
it is a rather quick read, but its good for a laugh or two (heck more than that!). if youre looking for something new to read whenever get this book and enjoy!
ps if anyone has read a comic in any of the Simpsons comic books that has Sideshow Bob in them please put it in your review! i do anything to see that crazy red-hair jail bird go after Bart again! lol

"A Where's Waldo book written by the Devil"---Ned Flanders
Belly Buster is another solid Simpsons comic book with the same type of art and humor you get from the television shows. There are a lot of shorts in this one but, for the most part, the comics offer good story lines with lots of typical Simpsons satire.
"Maggie Come Home": Lisa joins a demanding baby sitter union and Maggie ends up caught in the middle. A familiar person ends up behind the union mess. A fun, original comic.
"Storeroom Raider": Lisa must go into the school storeroom to fetch some chalk; a storeroom from which two students failed to return. Short but has a funny ending.
"What Would Possibly Happen if Cletus Went to College": Short about Springfield's "slack-jawed yokel." Can a "common man" save a financially-challenged university?
"Bart & Lisa & Marge & Homer & Maggie (to a lesser extent) vs. Thanksgiving": Follow each Simpson on his/her Thanksgiving adventure. Very contrived at the end but moderately amusing and creative.
"The Beer Boys": Homer takes over Moe's while Moe undergoes a gallstone operation. Feeling he is now "somebody," Homer starts his own bar. Ends abruptly but is still funny.
"Around Town w/ Ned Flanders": Ned is supposed to show us different sites in Springfield but his plans are abruptly cut short. This comic had possibilities but I think it came up as short as its 4 pages.
"Bart in `Fork it Over'": One-page short featuring Bart, Nelson, and Milhouse in the school cafeteria.
"Tanks for Nothing": Gampa gets a tank from the government in exchange for forfeiting unpaid back veteran benefits. The owner of the Shelbyville Nuclear Power Plant, Aristotle Amadopolis, who you may remember from the TV episode "Homer Defined," sees the tank parked at the Springfield plant and accuses Mr. Burns of breaking their arms treaty. Will their be a nuclear war? In this comic we get a glimpse of Mindy from the "Last Temptation of Homer" (I did not know she still worked there).
"Homer vs. the Wallpaper": In this 4-page short, Homer tries to put up Krusty wallpaper (with Krusty wallpaper paste, of course) in Bart's room and failing to "book" the paper isn't his only problem. Since when does Bart call him "Homeslice" and "Homefries"?
"Picture Perfect": Someone is graffiti-tagging the neighbor (I wonder who that could be?). Groundskeeper Willie is the hero in this 4-page short.
"Siege on Evergreen Terrace": Flanders prepaid for a pool to be built in his backyard while he was away. When the pool guys mistakenly go to Homer's house, Homer pretends to be Ned to get the free pool. After the pool is installed, Flanders alerts the pool builders of the mistake. Rather than give up the pool, Homer and his pool buddies stage a stand-off (at one point, the pool builders try to break the compound's spirits by blasting Kajagoogoo).
"Duff Daddy": An advertising agency for Duff beer hires Barney and Homer to do a Fruity Pebbles style commercial. This comic is lame.
"Ned Flanders in Blind Luck": A 4-page short where widower Ned takes a skanky gal on a date. The shooting range they go to is endorsed by "Charlton Heston of the NRA and Allen Iverson of the NBA."
"The Yes-Man Who Would Be King": Smithers might be the sole heir to the Swedish throne and the people of Springfield begin asking for his kingly advice: "Liberte, Egalite, Malibu Stacia."
I thought it was good
I think it was funny and I also showed some of my freinds that dont even watch the Simpsons and they thought it was good.
