CARRIE FISHER ON FAMILY GUY

Carrie Fisher is providing a guest voice on "Hell Comes to Quahog," the Sunday, Sept. 24 episode of Family Guy on Fox.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"After Peter buys a military tank with Meg's money, her car fund goes out the window and she's forced to get a job at the newly built Superstore in town. However, the town's economy begins to suffer when Superstore puts all the mom-and-pop shops out of business and sucks up the city's power supply. Brian and Stewie decide to take matters into their own hands in order to save the town from the corporate giant."

Fisher voices a character named Angela.



CIVIL WAR: CHOOSING SIDES

Marvel Comics on Thursday provided details for Civil War: Choosing Sides One-Shot.

A 48-pager due in stores on Oct. 25, the book features five stories that shine a spotlight on the wildcards and impact players whose part in the Civil War has yet to be told, including Daredevil/Iron Fist, U.S. Agent, the Irredeemable Ant Man, Venom and even Howard the Duck.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"While the heroes wage war on one another, just what are the villains of the Marvel Universe up to? Mac Gargan, the supervillain known as Venom, is looking at a country full of preoccupied heroes. That spells trouble for anybody in his way. Written by Marc Guggenheim with art by Leinil Franics Yu, this Venom story shows why the psychotic symbiote's bloody role in Civil War is just getting started. Everyone will be amazed where his story continues.

"Danny Rand, the man who has recently moonlighted as Daredevil and who possesses the power of the Iron Fist, has joined Captain America's Anti-Registration crew along with his former partner Luke Cage. Find out the reasons behind Iron Fist's decision in this story by Matt Fraction and David Aja in a story that leads into the new Iron Fist ongoing series from Fraction, Ed Brubaker and Aja coming this November.

"In a story by Robert Kirkman and Phil Hester, Civil War sees the birth of brand-new superhero with a classic name in the Irredeemable Ant-Man. When a low-level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent comes across Hank Pym's prototype for a new Ant-Man suit, the entire Marvel Universe is in trouble. This 'hero' isn't looking to help mankind, he's looking out for himself. Not only does this story feature the first appearance of the new Ant-Man, but it leads directly into the new ongoing The Irredeemable Ant-Man #1 in October.

"Captain America has chosen a side, but what about the man who briefly took up his mantle, the U.S. Agent? In a story by Michael Avon Oeming and Scott Kolins, John Walker has to choose a side -- the government he has always remained loyal to or the man whose legend he attempted to uphold? The answer won't be what you think.

"Plus, 'Civil War: I'm With Howard!' What happens when you're an alien duck stuck in a Civil War? The most asked for tale of Marvel's Civil WarŠdoes a Master of Quack Fu need to register? Find out what the Super Human Registration Act has in store for everybody's favorite surly duck in a story by Ty Templeton."
