Yes, at some point a TPB will be produced of both Crossovers as well as Simpsons Comics 89.

The idea when I last talked to Bongo was to release a trade of both of the crossovers and also include the Simpsons issue Hail to the Cat which is connected with the first story.

Does anyone know how The Simpsons get to New New York, or is it continued from the 2 page spread in the first part?

Continued from the end of the first crossover.
And I noticed after I posted that someone had already said the same thing. Ooops.

Here is the preview for the second part of the crossover from Forbidden Planet International

Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis Part II #2
by Boothby & Lloyd

After all of the residents of Springfield are enslaved in 31st century New New York City, the Simpsons and the Planet Express crew must work together to restore order, find a peaceful resolution, and repair the huge gaping vortex in the side of the New New York Public Library that has unleashed every character from the world of literature on an unsuspecting populace. Prepare yourself for "The Read Menace"! Read it and weep with laughter this March!

Any idea when the first part is out? It was meant to be out this month, but I'd have thought by now a confirmed release date would have been announced?...

Oh my god dudes, I have heard from my contacts at the Bi-Mon local express tour that this crossover is a robot conspiracy, taken control from the Planet G124003EX of the solar system BY678UTF. Don't trust the government, beware the eye of wrath!!!!!!

I used my debit card for the first time ever today to buy the Futurama Comic; mainly for the "Simpsons VS Futurama: Whoever wins, we laugh" pull-out poster.

Beats me.  Maybe it's just a typo.  Maybe you have to read this series backwards!  Maybe Bongo is just messing with our heads.

I'll find out next week.  big grin

It says Part 2, #2 though. I read that as the "Part 2" meaning the second Crossover Crisis, and the #2 as in the season issue in the second Crossover Crisis. That's why I asked what about Part 2, #1? That meaning the first Issue of the Second Crossover Crisis...

Well, I read the first issue (yes, it is issue #1, so the preview just made a mistake). It was pretty funny. I was a bit dubious about the idea, but it worked pretty well.

It had some good jokes, like the "flashback pills," the self-eating watermelon, Bart licking Bender, and the fact that the laundry officer outranks Kif. I thought the Aliens sequence was a bit silly, but the 2001 bit was good.

And was that the first Doctor Who reference in Futurama? (But it's too bad the TARDIS was drawn as an ordinary British phone booth, which doesn't look much like a police box. Maybe there were legal issues.)

Yes, it was just a typo.  I got my copy yesterday, and it is #1 of 2.  Also, the ad inside says that #2 of 2 is due in March.

I'm glad it's all been cleared up now, I got it too. Haven't read it yet, but flicked through and I must say it looks awesome to the max! btw, for anyone who hasn't got it yet and would like to see the front cover, I took a photo...

very nice cover I must say too...

Iíve read this now, and I can safely say it was well worth the wait! I love how it carries on from that last panel in part #2 of the original Crossover Crisis. The pacing through this Comic is great, nothing is left too long or too short, everything flows nicely and gives it a good sense or rhythm (which also helps with the jokes, as jokes often require good timing). The explanation of how the Simpsons charters got into the Futurama universe was a bit lame, but it wasn't meant to be taken seriously anyway, so it's ok.

I love how a wide variety of both Simpsons and Futurama characters were used in this issue, and the combinations of characters from each show worked very well together. I especially liked how they got Moe working behind the bar in iZac's pub, and then Bart and Bender prank calling him. The jokes in this issue were mostly great, some even classic, and the characters mostly in character. However there were a few jokes which reminded me a little too much of the modern Simpsons humor style, but they weren't total duds. I'm thinking along the lines in particular about Marge enjoying the flight on the Planet Express ship, and then being reminded she has a fear of flying, and then she runs around pretending to be scared. That seemed a bit stupid, but it's made up for with the fact they're not forgetting her phobia existed. Also Fry seemed a little exaggerated in terms of stupidity at times (some jokes were pointed out and explained too much like in more modern Simpsons episodes) I really liked how they revisited Leela and Lisa's relationship though.

This issue was packed with references to things (especially Star Wars) I absolutely loved the joke were Bart was trying to "Use the Force" to get a stick, and then Bender just grabbed it with his stretchy arms. The Aliens panel was nice too, with the chest burster getting away with Benders beer. Although perhaps having three major movie parodies in a row was a little overdoing it (Star Wars, Alien(s), 2001 A Space odyssey).

The artwork in this issue is clooled out, really top stuff. I don't think I've ever seen so much detail crammed into every page. All the characters from both Futurama and The Simpsons are pretty much spot on.  The backgrounds are inventive; the colors are really neat in this issue, and no corners were cut sacrificing quality. I especially loved the panel designs, plenty of experimentation and variation. Not just square boxes everywhere. We had some nice perspectives and eye candy shots, plenty of people in the frames, and even a double page panel spread, and it all seemed relevant! It helped give this comic it's  great pace and flow, never getting boring.

Altogether I prefer the original Crossover Crises, because they were so perfect. The criticisms with this issue are few and far between though, and really don't hurt nor hinder the quality and enjoyment of this issue at all. However it's because of those that I prefer the originals (but only very marginally). I felt the originals surpassed even the high quality of the standard Futurama Comics, and this issue does too, or at least it matches up to the very best that Futurama Comics have offered. It's still top marks from me though, and I can't wait for the second part!Ö

This comic is great! big grin I read it and it had some very good jokes and a good storyline. It continues well from the first crossovers and it had good Parodies (like Otis already said up in some posts before me). One thing I noticed is that they spelled Kif's name wrong. They spelled it 'Kiff' and it's 'Kif'.
Overall it is an excellent comic and I can't wait for the next one!!

I got it the other day, read it, and I must say it was GREAT. No futurama comic has ever made me laugh out loud. However this one did. Great art, great writing. Good work Bongo, keep churning out this sort of work!

Bump...

After an annoying delay, my local shop finally got this comic. I have to say, it's pretty awesome. The plot is interesting, there are plenty of great gags, and James Lloyd's artwork is as brilliant as ever. I'm looking forward to the conclusion in March!

I've read it (got the UK version) I think it's an above average issue and I liked it alot. James Lloyd's artwork looks as great as ever, the Alien page is one of the best Futurama or Simpsons images ever!
Somehow I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first crossover (probably just the law of sequels coming into effect) but it's still excellent. Can't wait 'till part 2 (and to get my hands on the "proper" american issue)
