Ah "The Simpsons", not only is it the longest running animated show on television but also one of the longest running prime time series of all time with 26 seasons (As of this writing) and counting. But what many don't know is that series creator Matt Groening also did another show on Comedy Central and that show was "Futurama". Futurama became a animated tv hit winning 21 awards and even three films over the shows 9 season lifespan. But now that two of Matt's creations have come together for an ...more

What it's about: This crossover posits that Futurama is the "real world" and The Simpsons is just a cartoon. As part of their evil plot, the evil brains featured in in the Futurama TV series try to send the Planet Express crew into literature - where they accidentally land in a Simpsons comic book. Hijinks ensue, which eventually threaten New New York with complete destruction if the Simpsons don't work with the Planet Express team to overcome the situation.

This comic book serial contains the illustrated adventures of two of Matt Groening’s most well-known creations when their worlds collide. When the crew of Planet Express complete a delivery of comic books to a nerd planet, they are caught in a surprise attack by evil brain spawn. In order to escape, Fry, Leela, and Bender, with the help of Nibbler, find refuge in a Simpsons comic book where they become trapped. The Planet Express crew must work with the citizens of Springfield to escape before t ...more

This collects all the crossover stories. As a fan of both The Simpsons and Futurama, this was an enjoyable read and was interesting to see what they could do when these characters came together. A must read for fans of both shows.

Took a break from Tolkien to read this. A crossover of two of the greatest shows ever, a few extra Simpsons stories, a reprint of Simpsons #1, a gallery of art, and all in a slick package? Yes please.

Very random and occasionally funny, this was a worthwhile read for a fan of the Simpsons and Futurama but probably not worthwhile otherwise.

Our friends from Futurama end up in Springfield (and vise versa) and they encounter aliens, floating brains, and Bender meets Moe!

The Worlds of Matt Groening's two most popular creations collide! And all of the characters find their almost natural counterparts: Homer and Bender have a fight and a few pints of Duff, Bart and Fry skate and play pranks, Leela encourages Lisa in some ways, Marge cares for Nibbler as he tricks her into believing he's a baby, and so on. The comic assumes that the world of Futurama is real, while The Simpsons continue to exist as a TV and comic book series. The Futurama crew get transported into ...more

​Good lord, this was hilarious is so many ways. All the "couplings" are perfect. Bender and Homer getting drunk together ... that was something I didn't know I needed to see. Leela teaching Lisa how to stand up for herself ... by kicking ASS! Nibbler versus Maggie is going to be epic. Bart and Fry, talk about equal footing. Scruffy and Willie talking about theoretical science actually seems real. I've definitely found the "little people" (if there truly are any) often surprise you with their int ...more

The Simpons and Futurama are two very popular animated cartoons, but up until now, they have only existed in their own separate worlds. That all changes when Fry, while reading a Simpsons comic book, is attacked by an army of giant mutant brains. They become so angry they force all the Futurama characters into The Simpons’ world and chaos ensues when these two universes finally meet. This book is a series of individual comic books presented in a hardcover-bound book with many color illustrations ...more

Futurama and The Simpsons collide. A string of pleasingly edgy if sometimes weak jokes and in-jokes ensue. None of the heart of either TV show, but that's true of all the Simpsons comics I've read.

The story is necessarily contrived, but it was fun to see the characters from each series interact.

The art is solid, with some great two page spreads - a riot of colour and detail with a feel of Where's Wally about them.

The package is lovingly put together and will please fans or collectors of either c

This was actually pretty fun stuff! It's not that I was dying to see all the in-jokes of the two worlds 'colliding' in more than one situation... it was that the book really played headgames with the personalities, both similarities and differences, of all the characters.

Also, twords the back, there is an amazing series of artworks, in which they demonstrate how a cartoonist comes from a basic 'script' idea, to a fully colorized page in a book. THAT is totally worth reading this, alone!

Kudos for
Highly entertaining compilation of several comic books in the Futurama and Simpsons universe, most of which deal with the two universes colliding, first with the Futurama folks in the Simpsons universe, and then vice-versa. The book is of high production value, hard bound, with a free reprint of the first Simpsons comic included in the back pocket. I'd read a few Simpsons and Futurama comics before, and these are some of the most entertaining ones I have read so far. It'd be a great introduction ...more

A brand new Simpsons Comic special has been written and it's amazing. The concept is genius and this is a MUST HAVE for Simpsons and Futurama fans.
The Simpsons and Futurama collide when the space/time continuum is broken and Futurama enters Springfield. As Futurama leaves halfway in the book, the Simpsons soon enter New New York. A whole bunch of antics ensue as this happens and the ending will only be recognized by Simpsons COMICS fans. But no fear! There's a reprint of the very first Simpsons
Jan 20, 2011 rated it did not like it
I think my main problem with this book is that the humor doesn't translate neither as well on the written page than it does on television. The jokes felt ham-handed and some of the dialogue and mannerisms felt really out of step with the established characters--not often, but enough to really suck me out of the story.

Die-hards may love it. Comic fans may enjoy it. But I just gave up after fifty pages, because I didn't see it becoming any better for me.

Simpsons and Futurama comics are a gem in the world of comedy comics. The writing fits both series, and the references to other elements of pop culture are just golden. Best of, the main casts of both series get equal screen time. The only downside is the potential cliffhanger ending, but seriously, if you like either one of these series, you should read it. It's fantastic. ...more

Two of my favorite series and cartoon/author .. it was a no brainier to buy! It was fun seeing the worlds inter mix because at first i wasn't sure how they were going to do it and make things work good. But they did and it was awesome that they added extra stories and artwork! I think i will keep this book for the rest of my life. =) ...more

About the same as all the Futurama comics I've read - not bad; it's got nothing on the show. I laughed out loud a couple of times. This particular comic had some gorgeous artwork printed on excellent paper, and also comes with a reprint of the first Simpsons comic ever, so I'm quite comfortable giving it 4 stars. ...more

Do you like Simpsons? And Futurama? You do? Good, then you will like this comic book too. There isn't much to say about it after that. The plot did not best quality of the better episodes, but the humor was still there, even in this non-moving version. Especially, I enjoyed the sheer number of cameo characters and cultural references. Sketches at the end of the book were a nice bonus too. ...more

Okay. Look, I don't read many graphic novels. They make the picture in your mind for you, which I normally don't like.

But, if something looks REALLY awesome, well, I've just got to try it :).

This. This book combines two of my absolute favorite TV shows to get the most brilliant, hilarious, amazing outcome I could have expected.

It was so perfect!

Bought this for the boy for Christmas. He devoured it and I got to sneak a peek at it. Pretty funny. I'm surprised at what a nice hardback it is and that it comes with a hard storage sleeve as well. My biggest concern was that it would just be a book form of the crossover episode that aired recently but it wasn't. ...more

The most popular comics series in my library by far is the Simpsons. It is the one series that I consistently have to replace copies of. This title will definitely be popular with my teens and I'm hoping the meta literary plot will inject some classics appeal s well. ...more
