Simpson’s patriarch Homer came in second place and Lisa was third.

“Picking up nearly half of all the votes cast, Bart was a clear winner,” noted Simpsons Comics Brand Manager, Jo Browne, “demonstrating the on-going popularity of Springfield’s anarchic first son with UK Simpsons fans.”

The top ten characters, as voted for by Simpsons Comics readers, were:

1 – Bart Simpson

2 – Homer Simpson

3 – Lisa

4 – Maggie

5 – Krusty the Clown

6 – Marge

7 – Mr Burns

8 – Ned Flanders

10 – Santa’s Little Helper
