Here's the synopsis for 'Futurama Comics #25' due out this May

Futurama Comics #25
by Boothby & Kazaleh
Gather ‘round and hear tell of the three "deliverers" who fell from the sky, and liberated the good and filthy people of Bottingham... and of the metal rebel who threw off the chains of oppression and over taxation and without faint heart challenged the dastardly sheriff the one who robbed from the rich, gave some to the poor, and kept most of it for himself Robot Hood! Hear ye! Hear ye! Futurama Comics will set you free this May!   

Sounds pretty good.

Here's the cover:

This sounds awesome!  I'm looking forward to that!  However, I don't even have issue #23 yet.

Issue #25?


Oh dear, I'm very confused.

At Diamond Shipping, it says it's coming out in two weeks.

how come in England May is Issue 32? Did we start before the yanks did?

I think the British comics are different entirely...not sure though.

Also, my local Waldenbooks doesn't have #25 yet, but I did get #24 and a clerk's phone number when I went there earlier (hot nerdy bookstore clerks...God's greatest gift to mankind.)  I can never figure out the schedule on these things anyway.

The reason why it's issue 32 in England is besause the UK comics are different to the US ones. I think the UK versions are A4 size (slightly bigger then the US versions) and released monthly, where as the US versions are releases bi-monthly. In the UK ones the stories are also split in half so you buy one comic, read the first half of the story and then wait a month for the second half (or something like that). I think they also use a different publishing system.

Issue 30 - "Bender Breaks Out"+++
Issue 31 - "More Than A Filling!" (Part 1)
Issue 32 - "More Than A Filling!" (Part 2)

+ Futurama Comics UK went monthly at this point - stories are being split into 2 magazines now in order to avoid "catching" up with the US comics too quickly.
++ Part 1 was published as Simpsons Comics #103.
+++ Due to the storyline of Issue 30, it was published intact rather than split over two issues. This is because the comic has to be whole for it to make any kind of sense. The comics reverted to 2 parters after Issue 30.

Looks good. I'll be heading to my store tomorrow, so is it out yet? If so, any good?

Issue #25 was released on May 24 here in the US.  And yes, it is good.  Poor Zoidberg! (egad, I've said too much!).

I have to say it - they do seem to be becoming increasingly far fetched.
But it was fun all the same - I bought it today - and enjoyed it   smile

I just got the comic off eBay. I liked it, only thing that annoyed me was the full page ads spread throughout it, but at least these ones weren't as bad as the ads in the previous few comics.

The comic hasn't come to my bookstore yet.  The clerk told me there's been a delay due to the holiday. 

Hopefully, it will come next week.  If not, I'll check on EBAY.

I didn't really like this one. It was okay but nowhere near as good as ones like #24 and #23 etc. It was a bit wierd.

I finally got my cop of issue #25!  It was cool for a Robin Hood story.  I liked how Zoidberg kept singing, and how Bender became Robin Hood and forced Leela and Fry to do his bidding.  The only thing I didn't like was Fry getting fat, that made no sense to me.   Other than that it was a really cool comic book.  Looking forward to issue #26!

Got this one today.  I think I'll start making a habit out of getting the Futurama comics.

Yes, quite out there as far as Futurama plots go, and a bit predictable, but with enough good jokes to make up for that.  If no one hears from me for a while, it's because I died of a pun-attack reading the first half of this issue.

Anyone notice the comics lately haven't published any fan-art or fan-mail?  What's that all about?

On an unrelated note, this comic made a story about Fry getting fat, and I wrote a fanfic where Fry is extremely scrawny.   

« Reply #17 on: 06-26-2006 22:08 »

Yeah, I was wondering what happened to the fan mail as well. It's probably because they used up all the space by putting in those crappy ads.
