Hi everyone, new user and new fan of the simpsons comics here and I have some questions!
1) I've recently discovered that Harper Collins is going to release this August a trade paperback called The Simpsons: Futurama: Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis, ISBN 0060897260 / 978-0060897260. It's 160 pages long, so I assume that it will contain both crossovers. Can anyone tell me how many pages had the old harcover? I know that it had some extras, so I wanted to see if the page count is the same and if it's going to have the same extras.
I found it on:
The Simpsons/Futurama Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis by Matt Groening, 9780060897260, available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
The Simpsons: Futurama: Infinitely Secret Crossover Crisis : Groening, Matt: Amazon.co.uk: Books
I hope it's not a mistake and that it's going to be released for real, I discovered too late these comics and I didn't have a chance to buy the hardcover of this crossover.
2) I also wanted to ask: does anyone knows what happened to Bapper Books? The Disenchantement Untold Tales came out exclusively at San Diego Comic-con in 2019 and then we didn't have any news. I was hoping that they would also resume the publications of new Simpsons or Futurama comics.
3) Was the #100 issue ever collected in a paperback?
P.s.: Pretty excited for the Treehouse of Horror omnibus. I was looking ad this page https://www.simpsonsarchive.com/guides/booklistus02detail.html#BKC009USDET
and I discovered that every Treehouse of Horror paperback not only collected three issues of the series, but also new material created for the paperback. I hope that they're going to include that in the omnibuses. Also, am I wrong or there some issues that were never collected? I hope that they're collected in this omnibus.
Combining the number of pages of the first three paperbacks, which is 144+144+128 according to that website, you get exactly 416 pages, which is the number of pages that the first omnibus is listed to have. The there are the remaining three paperbacks, which are 128+128+125, 381 pages that could be the second omnibus. These remaining paperbacks collects up to Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror #13, right before the series changed name. Then, we have The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror #14-23 that were never collected. I couldn't find the exact number of pages of the issues #20-23, but up #14-19 are 45+47+48+44+41+41 = 266 (I used this resource: https://www.simpsonsarchive.com/guides/comics_th01.html
). Supponing that #20-23 are 41 pages each like #18-19, we get to a total of 430 pages, which it's not distant from the first omnibus. And maybe they could even insert #14-14 in the second omnibus since, if my calculations are correct, should be 381 pages if it includes the fourth, fifth and sixth paperback.
I really hope I am right ahaha.
