Fox has released a new promotional image from "Treehouse of Horror XVII," the annual anthology episode of The Simpsons.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"The Simpsons hand out screams and scare up laughs in their annual, bone-chilling Halloween special. The horror starts in 'Married To The Blob,' when a meteor falls to Earth and reveals a green goo that Homer mistakes for a marshmallow. After Homer eats the goo, he turns into a rampaging blob with a never-ending appetite that even guest voice Dr. Phil McGraw can't stop.

"In 'You Gotta Know When To Golem,' the fright-fest continues when Bart brings Golem -- guest voice Richard Lewis) as a legendary monster from Jewish folklore -- to life and forces him to carry out his ghastly bidding. But when the creature is finally freed of his evil-doing, Marge, Bart and Lisa create a female monster (guest voice Fran Drescher) that captures Golem's heart.

"In the final scare, 'The Day the Earth Looked Stupid,' a fake radio broadcast convinces the residents of Springfield that they're in the midst of an alien invasion, throwing the town into a state of pandemonium -- which only worsens when the invasion stops being a hoax and becomes reality."

"Treehouse of Horror XVII" is scheduled to air on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

* Image Comics has announced that The Complete Invincible Library, Vol. 1 HC, due in stores on Dec. 6, will clock in at 768 pages.

"These big books are a treat to do. They're a bit on the expensive side, but you have to be able to afford an assistant just to help you lift them so I figure people who can afford to lift them can afford to buy them," said Invincible writer/creator Robert Kirkman. "I like giving people as much content as possible in this big hardcovers and this thing delivers. There's literally not a sketch or scribble not contained in this book. This book has everything but the brain cells that generated it."

The book will come in a regular edition for $125 and a signed and numbered edition for $175.

* According to Variety, Marvel Studios is teaming with Vancouver-based production company No Equal Entertainment to develop a Moon Knight television series.
