Title: Ralph Wiggum Comics #1 (One Shot) Coming 29th February 2012

In the first of Bongo Comics' soon to be legendary Simpsons One-Shot Wonders, Ralph Wiggum takes center stage. In his first solo outing, Ralph has a day off of school, is left home alone, and becomes a role model to a new kid in town.  Add in some short features by Sergio Aragonés and watch the chaos ensue.

By Aragonés, Lay, McCann, Trainor, Kazaleh, Lloyd

I notice that Ralph's line was changed from "I'm a Comic Book" to "I'm in Mint Conditioner"

Starting with this topic, I'm going to add polls for reviewing the issue. Unlike on the NHC, you will be able to rate the comic a zero.

I like the new line, it seems more 'classic' absurd Ralph, instead of the old line which was like Jean-era retard Ralph.

That, and "I'm a Comic Book" doesn't really make much sense anyway.

Yeah, the "I am a comic book" was kind of to obvious. But then i usually think Ralph jokes often get kind of lame.
The joke would have been pretty grotesque if he had said"I am in mint condition" and one looked at the comic after some "heavy" use. ;)

It seems like there's three different lines for Ralph.

"I'm a Comic Book", "I'm in Mint Conditioner" and "It's my first tissue"

Blacking out the alternate speech bubbles, what a Scrooge!

It's a pretty decent book

You have:

- "The Man of the House" by Trainor (script) and Kazaleh (art). It features Chief Wiggum leaving Ralph home alone, and Ralph tries to act like Chief Wiggum to make himself some waffles, and Coffee with disastrous results.
- "Ralph's Room" by Aragonés, which is pretty much a copy of Maggie's Crib. There's two of these.
- "Ralph Wiggum's Day off" by Lay. Ralph gets on the wrong bus to school and believe he's time travelled.
- "Where's Ralph" a Where's Wally style pic where you have to find Ralph.
- "Ralph: The Role Model" a younger kid asks Ralph to be his role model, but he intends to only get Ralph in trouble, but fails repeatedly.

The Junk Mail section is answered as Ralph, and the other upcoming one-shots are mentioned, which we know about, Milhouse, L'il Homie and Maggie. They mention that fans can send in ideas for other one shots. Which I might just do myself. :P

A shame Lisa's already bombed spectacularly

Just because she was intended to have a proper series, doesn't mean she can't have her own new one shot.

For some reason, I'd like to see a comic based around Zia from NABF18.

Wiimeiser, Lisa Comics was only ever intended as a one shot. The issue never made reference to a #2 being planned, and was released at the same time as other specials from Bongo, like Krusty Comics and the Radioactive Man colossal. It never "bombed", it was never planned to extend past a first issue.

Still. Just because she had one in 1995(?) doesn't mean she can't have another. It has been 17 years after all...

The first to be able to send a photo of all five speech bubbles, gets the ability to be put into an issue of Simpsons Comics or Bart Simpson comics, their choice.

The three I listed earlier are Direct Editions, there are two more for the Bookstore/Newsstand versions.

Exactly, Bart #43 ("Lisa's Brother") was advertised with references to Lisa #1.
