SPRING! a Simpsons fan comic launched by Joe Chouinard is a five-part webcomic posted on Twitter that brings the comedy fans have come to expect from The Simpsons and adds action to the manga style. At first, fans are told that Mr. Burns has died and his will states that his immense wealth will be left to the winner of a city-wide fighting tournament. Everything regular Simpsons Characters and supporting characters are participating, fighting each other as characters in a Dragon Ball manga would do it, all for the chance of great fortune. As many familiar faces go up and down the panel, one man stands out above the rest, and that man is none other than Homer Simpson.
Homer uses the power of drunken hopelessness to win his way to the top of the tournament, and while that description may seem a bit heavy and sad for a Simpsons comical, that’s because it is and history doesn’t shy away from that fact. The only reason Homer is fighting in the tournament is because he and Marge got divorced, and his family almost hates him. To show them that he is not a loser, Homer has decided to win the Burns tournament, using beer to numb the pain it takes to win. Homer only realizes his mistake after facing his latest challenger: his own son Bart. In the middle of their epic fight, Homer leaves the ring and loses the tournament and Bart takes home the gold, but in the end Homer is the true winner. His family sees how hard he is trying to get back into their lives and once he vows to stop drinking, he is given another chance to be the husband and father everyone expected him to be.
