Launch of Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror #15, Edited by Sammy Harkham. Artists signing the issue at Family include Sammy Harkham, Matt Groening, Jeffrey Brown, Jordan Crane, and Tim Hensley. The issue is available at Family before it hits newsstands, grocery stores, 7-11s, etc Family will also be opening an in-store exhibition of original art from the comic that night. Guest edited by Sammy Harkham, the award-winning creator of the popular Kramers Ergot anthology, this year's issue is jam-packed with some of the most idiosyncratic takes on "The Simpsons" universe ever. Among Halloween-inspired short strips by such visionary cartoonists as C.F. (Powr Mastrs), Will Sweeney (Tales from Greenfuzz), Jordan Crane (Uptight), Tim Hensley (MOME), and John Kerschbaum (Petey & Pussy), are four featured tales of inspired Simpsons lunacy: heralded artists Kevin Huizenga (Ganges, Or Else) and Matthew Thurber (1-800 Mice, Kramers Ergot) collaborate on a weird and wild story equal parts Lovecraftian eco-horror and Philip K. Dick identity comedy. Jeffrey Brown (Incredible Change- Bots, Clumsy) does a creepy and suitably pathetic story featuring Milhouse in a "Bad Ronald"-inspired tale of murder and crawl space living. Harkham and Ted May (INJURY) pull out all the stops for a tragic monster tale of unrequited love, bad karaoke, and body snatching at Moe's Bar. Ben Jones (Paper Rad) does the comic of his life with an epic tale of how bootleg candy being sold at the Kwik-E-Mart rapidly spirals out of control into an Invasion of The Body Snatchers-like nightmare of a Springfield filled with cheap bootleg versions of familiar characters. And nobody does squishy, sweaty, and gross like up and coming cartoonist Jon Vermilyea (MOME), who outdoes himself with "C.H.U.M.M.," a C.H.U.D.-inspired parody featuring everybody's favorite senior citizen, Hans Moleman!
