Are they ever going to get released in a book like 1-4 and 5-9 did (ala Futurama-o-rama and Futurama Adventures)?

I want to get all the comics but I perfer having them in the hard(er) books much more than the flimsy comics.  Plus they look a lot nicer.

Also what about the Simpsons Crossover Crisis series?  I have all those issues, but again, I'd really like to have them in a book.

So does anyone have any word on this?   confused

*edit* the reason I bring this up is because vol. 17, 18 and 19 are all being released in a book this July, and I was wondering why they skipped these 7 issues.

16 is also in the time bender book (its a 4-part trilogy) I'm not sure if the others are coming in books, but I hope so.

I think Im really waiting for the hardcopy builds that have multiple comics within them.  That's the ticket!

I know, I didn't understand either, but everytime I read something about the B.T.T. it always says 4 part trilogy.  I don't get it myself.

So no one has any info about the 6 comics?

And thanks for the help Quolnok.

*edit* here's the press release for the B.T.T.*

The four-part trilogy returns in all-new trade paperback collection. Fry, Leela, Bender, and Professor Farnsworth's clone/ward Cubert take an intergalactic trip, and when they return to Earth, they find the planet uninhabited. First, our merry band of messengers must fight off alien invaders bent on claiming the planet as their own. Then they must go in search of their missing colleagues as well as billions of citizens from Planet Earth. And before long the intrepid crew quite literally goes to Hell and back again. Will the world ever get back to normal, or is everyone totally boned?

I haven't got any hardcover books since I can't find any.

Why do you seem so desperate on getting the hardcovers?

I perfer them, they last longer and are more sturdy in your hands.  They look nicer overall, I don't know.. I just think they're better.

I'm not desperate on getting them, I just wanted to know if those issues 10-15 are getting the same treatment as issue 1-9 and 16-19.

Maybe they made it a "four-part trilogy" as a poke at how the future will consider "4" a trilogy number... Just my guess. Anyways, I've never come upon hardcover TPBs, well, sure, somewhere I'm sure would sell them, say a library book system or something maybe, but I think the cardboard-ish covers are fine, since I'm usually not hard on my books to begin with... Look at me rambling on....Gonig back to more important matters, I haven't seen or read anything about the other comics coming to TPB any time soon, or at all for that matter... I wish they would though. Especially since coming by the older issues is hard enough as it is.

I think it's because issue #16 is a stand alone story that sets up the Trilogy at the end. I think it's probably included because it introduces the next three issues which are actually the trilogy.

Way back when Ian Boothby was developing the stories he himself said that in the future all trilogies would be done in 4 parts.  And yes, the 4 parts are coming out in TPB form.  There have been a couple of threads regarding this in the past couple of months and the first pictures of the cover were shown at Planet Bongo Comics.  Peel and Amazon I think have pictures of the cover up now as well.

Ok, so 17, 18 and 19 are the triligoy, but 16 is the story that sets it up?  Got'cha, that makes sence now.
