MmMm... Free Promotional Card

Simpsons News — Posted 06 Dec, 2001 by Scott

One thing we have all been taught in life is that nothing is free, so when something comes along that IS free, you better get it while supplies last ( or before the EBays and scalpers find out ). Inworks, the producers of the latest line of Simpsons Collector card ( the ones who did the 10th Anniversary line ) are promoting the new line which is to be out January 9th. The promo card is number Pi and features alien Kang as "King Kang." It's available at no charge (with a limit of one per person) by writing to Inkworks with a self-addressed stamped envelope. A page on the Inkworks Web site has the address with specific instructions. The offer expires Jan. 31, 2002. No word if Inkworks plans further promo cards for this Simpsons set.

Series 2 was originally scheduled to arrive in stores early this month, but Inkworks moved that back to Jan. 9 at the last minute in a posting on the Inkworks site.

Continue to the rest of this article to find the details on the Series 2 set.

Lots of original art.
The first series offered few surprises, in part because it contained a lot of artwork recycled from other Simpsons merchandise designs.

Interactive subsets.
These include "Character Cards," "Packy Wacky Cards," "Blacklight Cards," and "Treehouse of Horror Cards." Inkworks says that this set will feature "characters never before seen in trading cards."

Nine "Fold 'Ems" cards.
The tops and bottoms can be changed for "interactive fun."
Six "Bart Gallery" cards. No details yet.

"Original Sketch" cards.
Top artists from across the country offer interpretations of favorite Simpsons characters.

"Autograph" cards.
The best feature of the first Inkworks series were redemption cards to send away for signatures of one of the show's voice actors. No word yet on which actors signed for this set.
