Through a Mug Darkly is a Simpsons Comics story first printed in Simpsons Comics #177.
Homer Simpson is very excited because tomorrow it's the free pizza day, much to Lenny and Carl's astonishment. However, the following day, Marge asks him to keep his bed, since he got the flu. While she and the kids go to the church, Homer stays home alone and tries to distract himself, only to be disappointed when all advertising are about pizzas. He goes to the supermarket and meets the clerk who warns him to pay for his groceries. As he does not have any money, Homer prefers drink a bottle which causes him stomach pains.
He later wakes-up healthy at the plant with no memory of what happened. He meets Lenny and Carl who are well dressed and tell him that the plant belongs to him. Homer does not notice that Lenny wears glasses and ignores that he seems to have no knowledge of beer.
He goes at Moe's and discovers that it is now a coffee tavern. Moe himself does not know about beer, prompting Homer to visit various places such the Kwik E Markt where Duffman seems changed now.
He then asks Lisa to do some researches for him and learns that beer was banned after an accident which happened during the Egyptian Times. With the help of the mayor, he goes to Egyptia in order to save some beer which has been kept under control but fears when cockroaches begin to bite him.
Homer then wakes-up from what it turned out to be a nightmare. Apparently, he has been dreaming the whole day and Marge had to pick-him up from the Grocery. But he learns that he actually slept two days, and while his family was here, he missed the pizza day much to his dismay.
