A tremendous spoof from the Simpsons franchise, this comic is meant to be part of the ongoing series of Bart Simpsonís favorite hero, Radioactive Man, whose clean nuclear power is derived from a bit of lightning shaped shrapnel in his head (sort of makes a secret identity problematic, doesnít it?). Although published by Bongo Comics, the purveyor of other Simpsons books, including Bartman, Itchy & Scratchy Comics and the Radioactive Man mini-series, this comic is a total spoof of Marvel books from the 70s. Good olí RM ruminates on every page as hippies kidnap Radioactive Manís sidekick Fallout Boy. The Marvel swipes are expertly doneóright down to the one-line house ads that ran along the bottom margin of most Bronze Age Marvel books. If the essence of a Simpsons episode could be distilled on paper, it might read something like this. Good, clean nuclear fun, and well worth a look.
