Less than a month after wrapping up the 34-year run of his comic strip Life in Hell, Matt Groening proves that he’s not turning his back on the comic world. Fans of The Simpsons might be excited to hear about the new partnership between the digital comics platform comiXology and Groening’s Bongo Comics. Together they’re bringing The Simpsons comic book app to the iPad and iPhone.
