Bongo asked the all of the creators from this year's book for a few thoughts describing their experience making the stories. Here's a bit of what I had to say.

"My experience on Homer Goes to Hell was awesome. I had two main goals on it (three if you count getting paid.) First, I just wanted to do a Simpsons story that looked different than any I'd ever seen before...."
