The Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis is the fifth Futurama comic collection, and the first to be hard cover, compiling the crossover comics; "Somewhere Over the Brain-bow!", "Liquid Diamond Is Forever!", "Slaves of New New York!", "The Read Menace!" and related Simpsons comics into one book. It was released on 24 March, 2010.

Bongo Comics have released the following summary:

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? Prepare yourself for a Simpsons saga filled with Futurama! A Futurama fable suffused with the Simpsons! This is the epic story that you've been waiting for, a story so big that it can only be told in a large format, slip-cased edition, complete with new material, supplemental stories, preliminary sketches, character designs, and a pin-up gallery featuring the talents of comics industry luminaries. First published in 2002 and 2005 as two two-part comic book mini-series, these four hard-to-find comics are collected together for the first time in a hardcover collection, encased in a double diecut slipcase, and packaged with a bonus facsimile reprint of the Eisner Award-winning Simpsons Comics #1 from 1993.
