I know they are still being published, as I've seen them advertise both on Titan's website and in Simpsons Comics, but for the past 2 issues (18 and 19), I haven't been able to find copies of the comic in any shops! Plenty of Simpsons Comics, no Futurama comics anywhere.

I've bought 18 and 19 off Titan's website and have now bought a subscription, but do any other UKers have problems finding the comics in shops?

I don't buy them any more, but I see the reguarly in WHSmith smile

Yeah, I still get mine out of Smith's - sometimes 2 copies if the free gift is any good (like those shiny futurama stickers  big grin).

I think some of the larger supermarkets still sell it as well, along with loads of newsagents. It seems to be selling alright, but I can't see the public putting up with the crappy 'chopped-in-half' issues for much longer, especially when the time bender trilogy comes out.

They are hard also for me, the supermarkets don't have them, I have to go to one little newsagent which always has around four copies of the newest one.

True, I've stopped simply because they cut them in half. they're not pulling the wool over my eyes, those cheapskate bastards...

It must just be my area then. I used to buy them in WHSmith - and I had to be quick because they'd sell out very quickly! - but they've stopped selling them now, instead the space formerly taken up by them is taken up by additional Simpsons Comics. None of the local supermarkets stock them either.

Maybe the comics are only on sale in stores where they were actually quite popular? If a store sold 5 times more Simpsons Comics, I suppose it makes sense they'd stop ordering Futurama to make way for more Simpsons.  frown
