Simpsons Comic Ends

In the month of October 2018, Bongo comics released Simpsons comic #245 with the caption above the title: “It’s a Simpsons send-off,” confirming that comic #245 was the last.  It was announced at ComicCon International in San Diego that the series would be ending along with the Spongebob comic series taking an “extended break” which leaves questions about Bongo’s future. Few know that the long running TV show The Simpsons had a comic series to go along with it.
