** The Krustonia issue revolves around Krusty going to extreme lengths to avoid having to pay taxes as he did in "Bart the Fink". Bart even gets recruited by Krusty's lawyers because they figure after what Bart did he knows his way around the tax codes.



* IAteWhat: The absolute last straw for the people of Krustonia is finding out the salami they've been living on isn't made of soy, but ''tadpoles'', which prompts Homer to rouse everyone into a mob.



* ItWillNeverCatchOn: One issue of Radioactive Man has the title character and fellow superheroes Bleeding Heart and Black Partridge travelling across America. After stopping at a diner, Partridge thinks to herself the idea of [[ComicBook/GreenArrow superheroes travelling across America]] is ludicrous. Just to ram the point home, what's clearly Oliver Queen and Hal Jordan can be seen behind her.

* StartMyOwn: Krusty decides to found his own country, inspired by a comment of Bart's (who'd just that day seen a video half-explaining the beginnings of the American Revolution). Just so he doesn't have to pay taxes again.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Several characters from the show have quite a few color changes in the comics...
** Moe Syzlak's navy-blue apron and matching bowtie are changed to a white apron and pink bowtie, in most cases.
** Krusty the Clown's beard is not made up like the rest of his face, and is in its' natural dark brown color (in the show and most merchandising appearances, his beard is painted from either light orange to a peachy color.)
** Seymour Skinner's hair is brown in the comics, instead of gray as in the show and most merchandise.
** Similarly, Apu is shown in the comics with black hair, which he indeed had in the first season, but from the second season onward his hair was changed to gray.
** Grampa Simpson generally wears a blue shirt and pants in the comics; in the show he only wore this color in the first season, as from the second season onward he started wearing a beige shirt and gray pants.
** Sideshow Bob has a slightly lighter complexion from many of the other characters in animation, but in the comics and many merchandising appearances, his skin tone is the same as the rest of the yellow-skinned characters.

** The Radioactive Man and Bartman comics parody the living hell out of every superhero cliché and trope out there, then go back for seconds. Not to mention, Radioactive Man's stories often parody other famous superhero storylines. And in a disturbing twist, they often don't change very much from said stories...



* BavarianFireDrill: A group of old people steal a bus belonging to the school board, and are met by Skinner, who assumes they're inspectors. When called on it much later, they admitted they were just going along with it at that point.



* BodyPaint: An issue has Homer painting on a shirt and going to work like this to cope with a heatwave. Later, he's seen in a jail cell with a towel wrapped around him, talking about how his idea of painted on pants was not as subtle or well-received.
* BrickJoke: In the fourth installment of the main comic, Milhouse is reading a newspaper. It's mentioned in a small column on the front page that the actor who portrays Scratchy the Cat at the Krustyland amusement park has mysteriously disappeared, but none of the characters notice this, as they're too concerned with reading about the baseball game later that day. Not until ''Bartman #3'' do we learn not only that the disappearance was a kidnapping, but that it ended up creating a citywide crisis in Springfield that now only Bartman and Radioactive Man can resolve.

* NinetiesAntiHero: Parodied, like every other super hero cliché, when Bart visits the Android's Dungeon in one issue, and there's a shot of dozens of comics, including such [[SarcasmMode lovely names]] as Deathkill, Killdeath, Deathdeath and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers The Lockjaw Legion]].
** And again with a Radioactive Man issue, where a clone of his becomes a nastier, edgier Radioactive Man, who is much more popular with children and marketing executives. The original defeats him with an attorney.
** Another Radioactive Man story that's supposed to be set during the Silver Age features his friend Radioactive Ape undergoing a series of bizarre transformations, the last of which sees him becoming an ultra-muscled, gun-toting thug covered in spikes and belts. After curing him, the two joke about how [[TemptingFate super heroes would never look that ridiculous in the future]].



* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Like you see in the page pic, the first comic book involved Homer being on the receiving end of one of [[MiracleGroMonster Mr. Burns' experimental growth rays]]. He ended up rampaging through Springfield until a dose of an experimental formula returned him to normal.



* BizarroUniverse: There is a story where a malfunctioning invention of Professor Frink's turns the Simpson-verse bizarro- Sideshow Bob is principal of Springfield Elementary, with Milhouse as the top prankster, Bart as the nervous side character, and Lisa, bored with school and unhappy with her good grades. Krusty is an ex-clown sidekick in jail for framing his boss, Mr. Burns is not a rich businessman (With Smithers as his dog), Homer is a single dad raising Bart and Maggie who works for Comic Book Guy's mafia, Marge is a single mom who acts as Springfield's mayor, and most shocking over all, Homer and Marge never met! In fact, the only unchanged person is Moe the Bartender, still running his tavern- though he now has a glass eye. In trying to get back home, Frink ends up causing a series of events that makes the bizarroverse more like the real one.



* BlasphemousBoast: In an issue, Homer becomes the owner of a new boat and proclaims that it is so powerful that God himself could not sink it. And then Moe drives a truck carrying a large ice cube into the boat, causing it to sink; following the repairs, Homer claims that he wishes to retract his earlier comments about God's ship-sinking abilities, also offering praises to Allah, Buddah, and Ra for good measure.



* BodyPaint: An issue has Homer painting on a shirt and going to work like this to cope with a heatwave. Later, he's seen in a jail cell with a towel wrapped around him, talking about how his idea of painted on pants was not as subtle or well-received.



* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: Just like the cartoon, character's eyes tend to be the only thing visible in the darkness. Like in the show, this is frequently mocked, for example in issue #100, Bart asking Lisa how that's even possible.
-->'''Lisa:''' That's what you get when you're exposed to radiation for years.



* TheCameo: Pee-wee Herman (although [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed never mentioned by name]]) is the freak-show handler in "The Greatest D'oh On Earth." (It's something of an in-joke, since Pee-wee portrayer Paul Reubens grew up with several families of circus performers as his next-door neighbors, and of course appeared in ''Big Top Pee-wee''.)

* TheCameo: CameraSpoofing: In an issue, Homer, Lenny and Carl snuck out to go to a baseball game. Homer chose the Polaroid option, but accidentally attached the picture upside down. Burns, after having his TV viewer checked to make sure IT wasn't upside down, sent guards to investigate, but the picture fell off JUST as Homer got back to his seat. Burns never even noticed. Oh, and Lenny picked a third option, sticking a robot double in his seat.

* GoodAngelBadAngel: A comic features Bart suffering from a moral dilemma, complete with good and bad angels; the good angel knocks out the bad angel by ''throwing its halo like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's shield'', at which point Bart remarks, "It figures that ''my'' conscience would suffer from mood swings."



* NinetiesAntiHero: Parodied, like every other super hero cliché, when Bart visits the Android's Dungeon in one issue, and there's a shot of dozens of comics, including such [[SarcasmMode lovely names]] as Deathkill, Killdeath, Deathdeath and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers The Lockjaw Legion]].

After curing him, the two joke about how [[TemptingFate super heroes would never look that ridiculous in the future]].



* PlagiarismInFiction: In one early issue, Bart and Milhouse create their own superhero comic book, which is so popular at Springfield Elementary that fights for an issue break out. They try to sell their comic to real artists at a convention, but are turned down. Months later, a new comic comes out, starring a blatant expy of Bart and Milhouse's character with only the name changed. However, this shows the problem with stealing someone's idea- because the company isn't imaginative enough to create new ideas, the comic's stories become stale, and the publisher has to blackmail Bart and Milhouse into making new comics for them.



* SkinnyDipping: An issue ends with the townspeople getting drenched in mud and going skinny dipping to wash off.

** Another issue has Itchy and Scratchy being replaced (due to Cecil Terwilliger blackmailing Krusty) with ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'', in a made-up episode where Jeeves has two dates on the same day he's supposed to marry the queen. Homer complains about this... [[BaitAndSwitch because it's based on the "later" novels.]]

* CaptainExpy: A great many of Radioactive Man's supporting cast (and RM himself) take a great deal from other superhero comics.
** His sidekick Fallout Boy is a mix of Robin (teenaged sidekick who lives with superhero), and Spider-Man (social outcast with an elderly aunt).
** Bleeding Heart is Captain America (patriotic superhero, with the name change after his faith is shaken) mixed with Green Arrow (vocal left-wing after massive upshift in life) and Tony Stark (the Superior Squad's financial backer and former weapons developer).
** Weasel Woman is a gender-flipped Wolverine.
** Plasmo the Mystic is just Doctor Strange (fancy cape, tendency to make dramatic proclamations)



** Sounds pretty straightforward, but there was actually a twist. Convinced that the sculpture actually contained hidden jewels that would make the school (and possibly the community) rich, Martin Prince (who in this adventure is humorously portrayed as an erudite mob boss) had intended to have resident thug Jimbo Jones and his lackeys steal the statue and bring it to him, whereupon he would chip away at the paint to uncover the jewels. When [[spoiler: Skinner]] takes the statue, Martin suspects that Jimbo and the other henchmen have double-crossed him and are keeping the puma for themselves. (It's all for naught, though, because when Martin finally removes the paint, all he finds is "nothing but worthless plaster.")
