Toy Fair 2014: NECA’s ‘The Simpsons’ Guest Stars Action Figures

Toy Fair 2014 Neca Simpsons 01

Playmates did a thorough job of building its "World of Springfield" toy line to include scores of regular cast members from The Simpsons from 1999 to 2004, but one potential aspect of the line went unfulfilled for years... until now. Just in time for the show's 25th anniversary, fans will be able to collect action figures of The Simpsons celebrity guest stars in their four-fingered Matt Groening-style glory.

The Skateboards, Vampires, And Simpsons Art Of Isaac Lenkiewicz [Art]

Isaac Lenkiewicz, isaaclenkiewicz.blogspot.com

The first thing I saw when I went to check out Isaac Lenkiewicz's art was a post about how he messed up his hand falling off a skateboard, so even before I got too far, I was pretty sure I was going to like what he had to offer. Turns out, I was right: The stuff he posts at his website, including short comics inspired by Die Hard, sumo-wrestling giants and Bart Simpson fighting a vampire with a skateboard? Turns out that is exactly my jam, and "Challenge Bear" might be my new favorite character.

Check below to find some favorites, including an entry from his pixel art blog!

Ben Aslett Draws Kill-Happy Fishermen, Devonshire Devils And The Simpsons [Art]

Ben Aslett, http://www.benaslett.co.uk

One of the most fun things about looking at awesome art all day for work -- which, I assure you, is actually pretty fun -- is seeing familiar icons rendered in entirely new ways. Case in point: British illustrator Ben Aslett, who lent his unique style to a few drawings of America's favorite family, the Simpsons. For these, Aslett's art took on a quality that reminds me a lot of the Golden storybooks I used to have as a kid, but digging deeper into his art shows that his friendly faces show up in a lot of different ways, from a robot Billy Bass to a depiction of the Devil of Devonshire.

Check out a few of our favorites below!

‘The Simpsons’ Studio Ghibli Homage Is Something Special [Video]

The Simpsons Studio Ghibli Homage
FOX

If you thought that Comic Book Guy marrying a mangaka named Kumiko in this Sunday's new The Simpsons episode, "Married to the Blob" was going to be all Hulk Hands and Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison cameos, rest assured that principally western pop culture references aren't going to hog all of the airtime. In a new clip posted by Fox's Animation Domination channel, fans can watch an intoxicated Homer and the father of the bride-to-be stumble through a Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki-inspired wonderland chock full of homages to Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the SkyKiki's Delivery Service and more. It may be the best thing you'll see all week... with the full episode probably being the best thing you'll see on Sunday.

Comic Book Guy To Marry A Manga Artist On An Upcoming ‘The Simpsons’ Episode

The Simpsons Married to the Blob
FOX

The Android's Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop owner Jeff Albertson, the character from The Simpsons known to most as Comic Book Guy, has had his share of romances in the show's 25-year history, dating Agnes Skinner and nearly marrying Edna Krabappel.

Now, it seems he's finally found his one and only, a manga artist named Kumiko who is working on an autobiographical manga. If the screenshots (and the title) from the Jan. 12 episode, titled "Married to the Blob" are any indication, they'll be tying the knot. Check out some of those very screenshots after the jump.

Buy This Book: ‘The Wonderful World Of Lisa Simpson’ #1

The Wonderful World of Lisa Simpson #1, Bongo Comics

It might just be me, but I have to imagine that for a lot of people my age, it's still a little surprising to see Bongo's commitment to producing kid-friendly Simpsons comics. Pleasantly surprised, you understand, but still, I remember being a kid when that show started, and I have fond memories of both the parental outcry about how the Simpsons were actively destroying family values and the truly hilarious explosion of bootleg merchandise that followed its initial popularity. And yet, here we are, with a long-running line of comics that uses some of the most popular characters in any medium of the last quarter century to tell stories directed squarely at younger readers, and does it with a consistently high level of quality.

The latest offering: The Wonderful World of Lisa Simpson #1, a one-shot anthology of stories focusing on the Simpsons' often beleaguered middle child, told by a roster of all-star creators, mostly women, and it is great.
