This poster was made for the Bongo Comics booth at Comic Con 2004 in San Diego. I bought it and two Simpsons  posters for $480. It's on poster board and is signed by Mattt Groening.



Here's a clsoeup:

It says "Matt Groening Rare Signed Futurama poster 2004 A.D."

I have no idea why the links are not working , they appear to work fine on my home machines.

The poster is an approx 27x36 inch print of the Futurama Adventures graphic novel. It was printed directly onto poster board and I had the boards framed.


The Bongo Comics guys tell me since they do not have a poster license that this is the only one the made and it was for use exclusively at the San Diego Comic Convention.

Amazon.com has the book for sale if you want to see what it looks like at there site: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0060739096/ref=sib_dp_pt/102-8137192-7924956#reader-link

Like Otis said earlier, the link is now working for me. The poster is really cool, and signed by the man himself. You are one lucky guy.

Love the posters, especially the "The Roots" one of their album "Do You Want More", which I think is their best album yet.

Where did you get that poster from?

Neat-o posters. I'm a poster fanatic. (Barely any room on my walls thanks to wallscrolls and the like...) I've seen a couple of Futurama posters, but that's so cool to have a signed poster. Take uber good care of it--it's irreplaceable! ^_^

That Radioactive Man you have is a real nice one from that comic they just put out some time ago. Man you're lucky.

Soryy it took so long for me to respond.

I am a BIG Roots collector and that psoter is VERY VERY rare. I bought it about 7 years ago on eBay from some guy in Canada. It's the only one I have ever seen for sale.

The Legendary Roots Crew poster is one I made myself.

I made on for me, and I gave one to Questlove from the Roots.

Remember it was $480 for Futurama, Simpsons Classics and Radioactive man , and they are all one of a kinds AND signed.

I'll bet I can sell them for a profit, but I'll also bet I never will.

Cool. Were there other Futurama folks there other than Matt G? Older threads here mention Billy West and John Dimaggio there in years past.

I wonder if I could afford the airfare...

I figure it's the closest thing we're ever likely to get to a full Futurama convention, unless anyone knows better. If they ever did I'd be there for sure, no question.

I've seen similar posters for sale, for about half that price (still, $200 is nothing to sneeze at) but they weren't signed. Man, I wish that I could get a signed poster. However, just seeing Billy West (or rather, hearing) at a convention was just totally way past cool. Ah, well.
