Comic Series Information
First published: October, 2000
Last published: February 24, 2016
Publisher: Bongo Comics
Number of issues: 100

Simpsons Comics Presents Bart Simpson was a short stories comic book series centered on Simpsons star Bart Simpson which ran from 2000 to 2016 in the United States, published by Bongo Comics. The Australian version, published by Otter Press, ran from 2002 to 2016 and the UK version was published by Titan Magazines from 2001 until 2013 when it was replaced by Bart & Co. (which has also now been retired).

The frequency of publication changed multiple times over the course of the series. It was originally released every other month, but from April 2011 to July 2013 it was published every month before returning to a bi-monthly release. Issue 100 was published on February 24, 2016 as the last in the series after 15 years.


The comics had between three and seven different short stories, though a few releases only had one long story. There would sometimes be a bonus comic or three about Bongo Super Heroes. The series was in publication for a much shorter time than Simpsons Comics and had different types of plots, covers, drawings and titles than Simpsons Comics. The stories usually focused on the younger residents of Springfield, especially Bart.
