JUSTIN’S PICK :: THE MALEVOLENT MR. BURNS: For any kid born in the eighties, and coming of age in the early nineties, the Simpsons likely hold a special place in your hearts. Watching the show ebb and flow to varying levels of quality over the years has been a pleasure (or in some instances, displeasure) other generations may have missed. Now, Bongo rolls out a one-shot devoted entirely to the villainous Montgomery Burns. Burns’ character evolved drastically over the early seasons, from the steely, imposing boss, to bona fide baddie, and onward to bumbling comic relief. Also, Burns comes standard with his sycophantic Smithers, adding a component of creepiness as unnerving as it is entertaining. Hopefully, The Malevolent Mr. Burns issue will touch on all of these elements of the character. Only one way to find out.
