It’s been a few months since I played in Springfield, and I have an issue of Simpsons Comics out this week (or last week in some markets), but this time, I didn’t play in Springfield.
I played in Canada.
Yes, that’s right. I was delighted that the fine folks at Bongo let me move the Simpsons to Toronto, Ontario, Canada (my home town) for one issue. Those who live here know Toronto has more donut stores per capita than any other city on Earth. It’s kind of weird that Homer has never been here for that reason alone, but we also have bacon, poutine, really, really violent hockey on TV round the clock and adorable animals on all the coins. It kind of makes the Big Smoke (that’s the T-dot to you poor philistines who have to live eleswhere) the perfect location for Homer to live, and by the end of this story, he agrees.
Head out to the yer local comic stores this week to see what FINALLY brings Homer and the gang back to Springfield after Homer finds paradise under the CN Tower. And if you like this ish, you may be happy to know that I’m starting to draw my next one in a week or so (from another Templeton script, it’s like I only work with very specific writers).
Ty the Guy OUT!
