Futurama/Simpsons: Crossover Crisis #1

Crossover events have become fan-favorites since Marvel started the Secret Wars series back in the 80s. Bongo Comics is giving us the Futurama/Simpsons Special: Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis #1. What would happen if the Planet Express crew met the Simpsons, and how is it even possible? Take one millennial edition of a Bongo comic, add in two Brain Spawns, mix in one 20th century man plucked out of time who’s destined to save the universe, and stir it up with an interstellar three-eyed creature with a huge appetite and anything is possible. This is a bold new step for Bongo as they are making this a two-part mini-series.
 

At The Movies

Bad Company

CIA operative Kevin Pope is suave, brilliant, and right on the verge of completing a top-secret mission to keep a rogue nuclear weapon off the black market when he is suddenly killed. With the clock ticking and no other options available, the CIA reluctantly enlists Kevin's long-lost identical twin brother, Jake (Chris Rock), to take his place. But since Jake is the mirror opposite of Kevin, a working-class Joe, it's a comically uphill challenge to train him as a secret agent and get him in the field before disaster strikes. Anthony Hopkins plays a veteran CIA agent who trains Rock to act like an agent.

Legend Ultimate Edition

This DVD includes both the never-before-released, 113-minute Director's Cut and the version that was released theatrically. In this classic fantasy/adventure, pure good and foulest evil battle to the death. Set amid a timeless mythical forest inhabited by fairies, goblins and other magical folk is the story of Jack, a forest dweller who lives in solitude and harmony with the animals of the woods, including Unicorns, who are key to keeping light alive and evil at bay. Chosen by fate to undertake a heroic quest, Jack must brave a host of terrors to not only save his true love, but also rescue a captive unicorn, or the world will be plunged into a never-ending ice age where the dawn never comes and evil reigns supreme.
