THE SIMPSONS: "THE SERFSONS"

Fox has released images and a description from "The Serfsons," the Season 29 premiere of The Simpsons airing on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"In a magical medieval world, Marge's mother is turned into an Ice Walker and the only way for Homer to afford the cure is to force Lisa to use illegal magic. When the King discovers this, he kidnaps Lisa, and Homer must lead a feudal uprising to save her."

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of Game of Thrones provides a guest-voice.

MARVEL COMICS' PHOENIX: RESURRECTION

Marvel Comics has announced a Dec. 27 launch for the return of adult Jean Grey in Phoenix Resurrection, written by Matthew Rosenberg with art by Leinil Yu.

The five-issue series will also include five blockbuster artists taking on Jean Grey throughout the run, as well as Phoenix Variant covers that will begin in December.

"Matt came to us with a really interesting and unique approach to bringing Jean back," said editor Mark Paniccia. "It's not what we expected, and plays to Matt's biggest strengths as a storyteller. This is very cool mystery building to a mind-warping climax. And it has plenty of what you'd expect from an X-Men epic of this magnitude. Action, romance, sacrifice, lots of X-Men and five great artists."

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Strange events are no surprise to the X-Men, but when events start occurring that are more specific and strange than usual, the group is forced to confront the truth: could Jean be alive after all? And how will this Jean Grey deal with a world that is now so different from the one she left years ago?"

"It's such a mind-blowing honor to bring back the original Jean Grey," Rosenberg said. "I've been an X-Men fan my whole life and Jean is, in my mind, the true soul of the X-Men. So we aren't taking this lightly. We're going for that perfect balance of universe shaking epic and intimate personal drama that only the X-Men ever truly achieve. This is all hands on deck for the X-Men as every available member heads into battle for the soul of their team and maybe even the fate of the Marvel Universe."

"This is just the beginning," Paniccia said. "Something this big will leave quite a footprint on the Marvel Universe. Jean will have a startling new role after this, and you're left wondering, how will the rest of the X-Men respond? What will happen to young Jean Grey?"

RUST VOL. 4 FROM BOOM! STUDIOS

BOOM! Studios has announced a February release Royden Lepp's Rust Vol. 4: Soul In The Machine, the final chapter to his graphic novel series about a mysterious boy who suddenly appears on a farm struggling to survive after a long apocalyptic war and changes the fate of the family who runs it.

The book will be released simultaneously in hardcover and softcover.

At the center of the Rust saga is Jet Jones, a boy with a jetpack who crashes into the Taylor family farm. As Jet deals with his uncertain future, members of the Taylor family each view his arrival -- and subsequent stay -- in different ways.

"Rust is about loss, loyalty, love and courage," Lepp said. "This final volume takes place entirely in the course of one final night on the farm as each member of the family must fight for their lives and choose what they truly believe."

Developed over the last seven years, Rust is a personal story that echoes Lepp's own history -- in particular, the eldest son, Roman, who grapples with the loss of his father, who went missing during the war.

"As I was drawing and writing the final pages of this last book I realized that not only is it likely my greatest creative achievement thus far, but probably the one that will be the most personal to me," said Lepp, also known for his career as an art director in the video game industry. "For some reason, this book happened in a time in my life when I dealt with the repercussions of loss. Each time I sat down to write one of Roman's letters to his missing Dad, I was really of course writing a letter to my own Dad, who died a few months before volume one was released. This story is unique to a time in my life in a way that no other story will be."
