On Thursday, come to the Bongo Comics Sneak Peak (Room 3, 12:30-1:30 PM). Bongo Comics offers a mouth-watering preview of upcoming projects featuring "The Simpsons" and "Futurama" and a few other surprises.  Managing Editor Terry Delegeane and Creative Director Bill Morrison will host a panel featuring the writers and artists who create the comics and books based on Matt Groening’s phenomenal TV shows. Find out what’s in the future for Futurama Comics and what to surmise about Simpsons Comics. And stay tuned for an announcement about the newest addition to the wonderful world of humor comics. This is a ”must-attend” panel for all fans of "The Simpsons" and "Futurama" and anyone looking for a place to sit down!




Bongo Comic Group's own Bill Morrison hosts the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards for the fifth time, and as always, he will be ably assisted by his lovely wife, Kayre Morrison. But this year, he's brought along some "Futurama" friends for the festivities. Maurice LaMarche (also of "Pinky and the Brain") will serve as co-host of the evening, and Phil Lamarr (Hermes Conrad of "Futurama") will be a presenter. The fun begins at 8:30 PM on Friday night (7/23) at the Indigo Ballroom of the San Diego Hilton Bayfront.




Then on Saturday, it’s "Futurama/Simpsons" Day! Join the cast and crew in celebrating "Futurama"'s triumphant re-return to the airwaves!  World-premiere footage will offer an exciting and informative glimpse of Comic-Con in the year 3010.  Panelists include Executive Producers Matt Groening and David X. Cohen; cast members Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, and Maurice LaMarche; director Crystal Chesney-Thompson; writers Ken Keeler and Patric M. Verrone; and Animation Producer Claudia Katz. (Room 20, 12:45-1:30 PM)


You can choose to follow the "Futurama" cast to the Fox Home Entertainment booth (#4313) for a signing from 1:45-2:45 PM…OR…you can stay right where you are for "The Simpsons" panel!  Get an insight into the daily doings of this series from Creator Matt Groening, Showrunner Al Jean, Executive Producer Matt Selman and Supervising Director Mike B. Anderson. (Room 20 1:30-2:15 PM)


If you still haven’t had your share of super Simpsons fandom, pull up stakes and meet the mastermind behind "The Simpsons," Matt Groening, when he signs at the Fox Home Entertainment booth (#4313) from 2:30-3:30 PM. 




Stop by the Bongo Comics Group booth (#2519) while at the Comic-Con and meet the staff. And if you’d like to play a little show and tell, we’d love to see and take a snapshot of any “Simpsons” or “Futurama” tattoos you might proudly display about your person. Who knows? Your body art might be a part of Bongo’s new website…with your permission of course.

At last! It’s the meeting of Matt Groening’s mind-boggling comedy creations. 

They said it couldn’t be done. But we didn’t listen to the naysayers, refuse-niks, and non-believers. So here it is, folks! The story you’ve been waiting for…a story so big, so epic, 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 comic industry luminaries Alex Ross, Sergio Aragonés, Geof Darrow, Kyle Baker, and Gene Colan, among many others.


What would happen if the Planet Express crew and the citizens of New New York City in the 31st century met the Simpsons and the citizens of Springfield here and now…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, superhero battles, unflattering underwear, mad science run amok, and much, much more! 


Autographed copies of this monumental melding of Matt Groening's most famous creations are available at the Bongo booth (#2519).  

Bongo celebrates Futurama Comics’ “Big 5-0!” When Mom goes off on her annual vacation, she leaves Mom Corp. in the hands of her nitwit sons. Unable to control the company themselves, they look for an imposing and strong-willed woman who will fill their mother’s shoes…but they need search no further than an all-too-willing Leela, who is looking for some respect. This special, deluxe, golden anniversary issue comes with a special wraparound cover, plus a mind-bending pull out black light poster!

Get one of a limited number of signed and numbered copies along with an official golden certificate of Comic-Con exclusivity!
