1. First published in April 1990, Simpsons Illustrated was a quarterly magazine geared toward kids who were serious “Simpsons” fans.
2. Much like other kids’ magazines at the time (like Disney Adventures and Highlights), each issue included comics…
5. It also included an original comic: “Arnold.” Yes, that Arnold!
Craig Bartlett (creator of Hey Arnold!) is Matt Groening’s brother-in-law. The Arnold comic strip preceded the TV show.
