Eye on Springfield: The Simpsons, Season Seven

Welcome back to our season-by-season look at the official Greatest TV Show of All Time. It’s an odd-numbered season, which in Simpsons tradition means all change. But what happens when fans are the ones running the show?

One Week One Comic: Sabrina The Teenage Witch #1

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

This week, it’s Kelly Thompson/Veronica Fish/Andy Fish’s SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH #1, Archie’s modern revival of everyone’s favourite spooky teen. Spoilers this time are pretty light, so read on without fear. Except… fear of the supernatural!

One Week One Comic: The Wicked + The Divine #42

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

Except this week, I broke the rules. My pick is Kieron Gillen/Jamie McKelvie/Matt Wilson/Clayton Cowles’ THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #42, and the stuff I want to talk about is so spoilerific I can’t risk it wandering into someone’s timeline by accident. So we’re jumping straight to the blog post.

(I’ve actually got so much to say about this issue, I’ve already written a blog post about it over on TWATD. Why not double your pleasure and get it open in a tab now?)

Yeah, particularly hardcore spoilers follow beneath the cut.

eBook: Eye on Springfield, Seasons One-Five

Our latest monthly Patreon-funded ebook is here!

This time, it’s a collection of Eye on Springfield essays on the first five seasons of The Simpsons, covering how the show evolved from its creation through to its first big changeover of staff.

This being Alex’s pet project, he’s gone hugely overboard and illustrated the whole thing by hand. (You might argue that no one would ever even notice that the Eye on Springfield logo has been redrawn, but… hey, I’m mentioning it now.)

You can get it from the Tim + Alex Patreon, by pledging as little as $1 – which will also get you access to all our previous ebooks.

This time out, we’re looking at Simon Spurrier/Matías Bergara’s CODA #9. Some spoilers (though I’ve tried to avoid anything major) after the cut.
