Book Description

April 1 2010 Simpsons Futurama
What would happen if the Planet Express crew and the citizens of New York City in the 31st Century met the Simpsons and the citizens of Springfield . . . and how is it even possible? Prepare yourself for a Simpsons saga filled with Futurama! A Futurama fable suffused with the Simpsons! Featuring a plethora of pleasing plot devices including: evil brain spawn, lactose-intolerant space aliens, a giant ball of yarn, flying cars, mistaken identities, world domination, the brittle fabric of reality torn asunder, a comic book-collecting sentient planet, the Dewey Decimal system, self-eating watermelons, slave labor, space pirates, power-crazed vampires, super hero battles, unflattering underwear, mad science run amok, and much, much more! 

This is the epic story that you've been waiting for . . . a story so big, so ambitious, so sweeping that it can only be told in a 208-page, large format, slip-cased edition, complete with new material, supplemental stories, preliminary sketches, character designs, and a pin-up gallery featuring the talents of comics industry luminaries Alex Ross, Sergio Aragonés, Geof Darrow, Kyle Baker, Peter Kuper, and Bernie Wrightson, among others. 

It's a comic convergence on a reality ripping, time altering, space traveling, intergalactic scale! It's The Simpsons Futurama Crossover CrisisUncut and all comedy! First published in 2002 and 2005 as two two-part, comic book mini-series (Futurama/Simpsons Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis and The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II), these four hard-to-find comics are collected together for the first time in a hardcover collection, encased in a die-cut slipcase, and packaged with a reprint of the very first Eisner Award-winning issue of Simpsons Comics from 1993. 

“Abrams’ initial release is a beautifully designed package, a glossy hardcover in a glossier slipcover, as bright and colorful as a grab-bag bin in a candy-store.”
—The Onion AV Club

From Publishers Weekly 
Two classic animated series are brought together in a comic that offers many surprises, including how well it all works when transported to a new medium. Although both sources are the creation of cartoonist Matt Groening, the broadcast runs of each series referred to the other as works of fiction within their own universes, perhaps seeking to avoid the temptation of an attention grabbing crossover. And yet somehow this assemblage ably accomplishes just such a task while remaining faithful to the source materials. When Futurama's crew from the Planet Express delivery service become trapped in the fictional world of a Simpsons comic book, they must escape from Springfield. But shortly afterward they open a rift that brings the Simpsons characters into the Planet Express world, where the fictional characters must be rescued and returned to the pages of their comic book. Boothby's writing excels at letting each universe and the characters in them maintain their subtly distinct identities even when they blend. The overarching story for the book is designed to easily allow opportunities for affectionate references to comics, to science fiction, and to notable works of fiction. While the Simpsons comics included in the collection are not as strong, the crossover story takes what could have been a simple throwaway gag and instead crafts a funny, intricately detailed story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is over July 9 2010
By Mike P
Finally, Simpsons and Futurama fans have the chance to see two worlds collide with this comics book. It's near 200 pages of pure fun. They found an entertaining way of making the two separation universe to make only one and I love every part of it. We also have a great gift inside, the 1st issue of the Simpsons comics. What can we ask more? A movie adaptation somewhere in the futur? This Simpsons/Futurama Crossover crisis really worth the 20$ retail price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Comic Choice for Simpsons/Futurama Fan Jan. 7 2011
By Danne
I'm not a real comic buff, but I enjoyed this comic. It references both shows quite well and has brilliant graphic art throughout. I also enjoy the draft drawings included which show would-be comic artists how the pages look before they're completed. The packaging is also great (collectible), definitely worth buying for a collector or teenager.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased March 24 2010
By C. Kreider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For the price, you cannot beat the quality of this book. First off, the hard cover is a very nice size, not the usual comic or trade paperback size, but an inch or two bigger on both sides. The color artwork jumps from the pages and is very clean and crisp. The stories themselves are good and very lengthy, it seemed, compared to the usual single comic issues, with a lot of relevant plot material. The slip cover is very nicely done and the book binding seems to be sound.

When I read that the publishers were going to include a reprint of the very first Simpson's Comic, I assumed it would be bound with the rest of the hardback. To my delight, it is actually seperate, placed in a sleeve on the inside of the back cover. The cover to the reprint seems to be a bit thicker than the original #1, due perhaps for longer durability. Inside a out, a fine reprint indeed.

Finally this collection is available to everyone. It's about time. This is a great collection and I just love it more every time I read it. The slipcase Hardcover is really cool looking too. For the price how can you not grab it. A must own for Futuarama and Simpsons fans. Plus there is a nice little extra included that I won't ruin for you. Well worth the price and I am glad to have this in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be an animated movie!!!!!! Nov. 2 2010
By Picardfan007 - Published on Amazon.com
If anyone reads the futurama graphic novels; you'll see they are just as good as the animated show. This one is full of super-hero in jokes and comic book references only a true comic fan would understand. However dispite the price of the hardcover it's well worth it. It stands up to repeatd readings and the Simpson's #1 reproduction in the back cover makes it all the more better. I have to wonder why there hasn't been a large effort to produce this as a made to DVD release. If this story was adapted for a movie, it would sell millions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! July 3 2010
By D. Olga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am not a huge fan of Simpsons (still big one), but I love the Futurama. This book must be in every fan's collection. The story is really great and full of jokes we all love (unlike Futurama comics), and the book has some really cool arts at the end, referring to book itself and some movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat history and great hardcover version May 6 2010
By Javier Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not a fan of comics but I must say that when I saw this hardcover comic, I needed to buy it. Is the mix of two of my favorites cartoons, Futurama and The Simpsons, in a very interesting story that you must read. This comic holds in a single book the 4 comics: "Somewhere Over the Brain-bow!", "Liquid Diamond Is Forever!", "Slaves of New New York!" and "The Read Menace!".

The hardcover is neat, very well done and of great quality, the pages are also very colorful and with a high quality paper. You'll also get a re-issue of The Simpsons Comic #1 as a separate item in a sleeve inside the backcover of the comic.

Some other extras are many full page illustrations of mixes between Futurama and The Simpsons that you can't miss. Yet another extra is a behind the scenes of how they create this and all the comics at Bongo Comics.

Is really a collectors item, I truly recommend it.
