Thursday's Headlines - SIMPSONS COMICS Ending After 25 Years

The long-running Bongo Comics series Simpsons Comics is scheduled to end with October's #245, at the same time the company's other title, Spongebob Comics, is taking "an extended break." Simpsons Comics is currently one of the longest-running comic books that has never been renumbered, in publication since 1993.

This comes following a big year of changes at Bongo Comics, and Simpsons' owner 20th Century Fox. In July 2017, Bongo Comics co-founder Bill Morrison left the company to take over as Mad Magazine's Executive Editor. In December, the Walt Disney Company announced plans to acquire the media assets of 21st Century Fox (which would include Simpsons).
