Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis Slipcase HC

This is one of those rare posts about a comic of the day I have yet to purchase. The Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis slipcase hardcover has been order by my local comic shop, the Comic Bug, so I assume I will be purchasing it shortly. It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Futurama is one of my favorite television shows of all time and The Simpson started it all when it comes to adult cartoon humor. Both shows are in syndication and both have classic stupid characters: Homer and Fry. The hardcover addition will be a nice addition to my bookshelf. Hardcovers are so much nicer to have. They look sharp and can take a bump or two.

I am especially excited to pick up the book after seeing Phil LaMarr and Billy West at the Anaheim Wizard World today. They are voice actors for Futurama and possibly two of the funniest guys when paired together. LaMarr is known for his voice acting roles as Hermes and Preacher-bot on Futurama, but is best recognized as an original Mad TV performer (he was the UPS guy). West voices Fry, Farnsworth and Zoidberg on Futurama but is well known for other voices such as the iconic Ren and Stimpy. The combined talent and quick wit make this pair the perfect Futurama selling devise.
