Really? You're reporting on a Simpsons comic from Free Comic Book day? All because Del Ray tells you the author is part of this world manga fabrication?

Eh. I guess if it gets manga fans out of blocking the aisle at Borders and into struggling comic book stores, I guess that's a good thing.

For the record, the comic that will be part of Free Comic Book day is something of a manga-style parody of the Simpsons called "Too Crazy Juvenile Prankster: Bartomu!" It's actually pretty amusing, and I say that as someone who has no real love for that franchise. That's assuming that you're amused with some shonen-jokes and crazy weird English "translations" :3

Homer (left panel): Oh, my son is in danger that is too terrible! Will his skills be ingenious enough to save us from losing the pennant?

Homer (right panel): Hey! They are supposed to read this panel first! This is not true manga!

Woah, Space Coyote got published? I used to read her webcomic a couple years back. I've got some catching up to do.
