COMING MONDAY -- DC COMICS FOR MARCH

DC Comics will release its complete solicitations for March on Monday at 5 p.m. (ET). Check back here then for the rundown.

THE SIMPSONS, FAMILY GUY NEW EPISODES

Fox has scheduled new episodes of The Simpsons and Family Guy for Sunday, Jan. 7.

The episode of The Simpsons is titled "The Wife Aquatic."

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"While watching a home movie, Marge becomes depressed as she is reminded of memorable childhood vacations spent at Barnacle Bay. Hating to see Marge sad, Homer and the kids take her on a surprise trip to the bay, only to discover that it has turned into a rundown mess due to the absence of fish. Homer and the kids lovingly give the boardwalk a whole new makeover for Marge. But when Homer accidentally lights the renovated carousal on fire, stirring up an angry mob of townspeople, more than just waves come crashing down."

The episode of Family Guy is titled "Road to Rupert" and guest-stars Rob Lowe.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When the family has a garage sale, Brian accidentally sells Stewie's beloved teddy bear Rupert. Stewie is so distraught that Brian takes him on a cross-country road trip to Aspen, CO. When they find the culprit, Stanford (Lowe), Stewie challenges him to a ski-off to get Rupert back. Meanwhile, Peter loses his license, so Meg has to drive him around."



LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES UPDATE
