BONUS REVIEW by Shane Wallace
3 FREE COMICS TOTAL
(W/A/CA) Matt Groening
It's the foremost FCBD four-color giveaway of the year! Bart and Milhouse seek superheroic origin stories by attempting to acquire "accidental" superpowers... and learn that with trying to obtain great power comes great irresponsibility! Plus: Bart and Prof. Frink become trapped in between dimensions when a science demonstration goes awry, and C. Montgomery Burns takes us on a guided tour through the bowels of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant!
Here it is, the issue I wait for all year round, the Bongo Comics Free For All! This year's batch of new stories offer send ups of Itchy and Scratchy as Spy vs Spy! Bart and Milhouse try desperately to give themselves super powers and we take a tour into the under ground catacombs of the Burns Cave! This comic presents multiple stories involving superheroes, sci-fi, and tons of laughs. My only criticism is for a free for all, these exciting tales only focus on a handful of characters from the Bongo-verse. 3 stories contain Bart, 2 with Professor Frink and only a cameo by Homer. In a year that Bongo has brought us comics of Duffman, a Lisa Simpson and Ralph Wiggum, I was expecting more variety. On the back cover is Betty & Veronica homage cover featuring Futurama's Amy Wong and Turanga Leela, although fun, it just makes me want more! Over all, a splendid time is guaranteed for all!
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
