Storyline

Bart attends a comic book convention and decides he wants to buy the first issue of "Radioactive Man" comics for $100. He tries and fails to earn the money in various ways, including helping elderly neighbor Mrs. Glick, who works him like a horse then gives him a quarter. So Bart decides to go in with Milhouse and Martin, both of whom want the comic, though neither has enough money. When they chip in to buy the comic book, their friendships may be over as they turn to jealousy for the book. Written by Tiff Banks

Great Episode!
3 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The twenty-first episode in the second season of the Simpsons is a very fine episode that has some funny results. I can also relate to this episode because of some very similar childhood events. I love how watching this show can bring back some fond memories. This show also has some good themes on friendship.

In this episode, "Three Men and a Comic Book," Bart desperately wants the first edition of a Radioactive Man comic book, but Homer refuses to give him the money for it. So Bart convinces Martin Prince and Milhouse to pool their money together so they can buy it. But their friendship is tested when everybody wants the comic book for themselves.

Overall, this is a funny episode and one of the better ones of the second season. The final ten minutes are the best because of the confrontation between the friends which results in an unsurprising, but funny result. I rate this episode 9/10.
