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.
