Bongo Signing at CSU Chico for 10th Anniversary

Simpsons News — Posted 23 Oct, 2003 by Scott

Over the years, the creators of the classic TV comedy "The Simpsons" have constantly poked fun at the show's massive merchandising empire. This time they're celebrating part of the marketing empire by swinging into Chico and promoting "The Simpsons" ninth annual Halloween comic book. To commemorate Bongo Comics' 10-year anniversary, three of its artists signed comic books and cartoon merchandise. They also drew sketches at Bat Comics on Saturday for a steady stream of eager fans.

The first comic book issue featuring "Simpsons" characters was published in January 1993. Ten years later, Bongo Comics publishes several titles that include Bart Simpson's favorite hero, "Radioactive Man," as well as original titles such as "Heroes Anonymous."

Although the comic book signing was a celebration of Bill Morrison's work from the last 10 years, when asked what the 10-year anniversary means to him, Morrison replied, "It makes me feel old." Read the full article Here.

"I'm a huge comic book fan," said Ken Janke, a local Chico resident. "I am a huge 'Simpsons' fan and the biggest comic book geek among my friends. A couple of them are very good artists and I was hoping to get some tips for them."
