Description:
"Fry, Leela, and Bender are downsized in order to make an annual delivery of glass cleaner to a bottle city, but they soon find themselves trapped in a world on the brink of devastation, proving the old adage, "Those who live in glass houses, shouldn’t launch nuclear attacks."

Due January 2007


Sounds like it's going to be a good one. What do you think?

Downsized meaning shrunk or fired? Like they're going to the tiny bottle planet or if fired why are they delivering anything at all?

Wow, futz... that may actually be the stupidist thing I've ever heard a human being say... and I live in a small country town full of inbred yokels! You are seven different shades of moron.

JDB, it sounds great, I'm just peeved it takes so long for me to get them here in Australia.

Since they've gone bi-monthly here in Australia, coldangel_1, it will come out quicker than it would have if they had kept it quarterly (well, obviously). Expect it January 2008  wink or...if that's too long, see if you can order one by mail from a comic book store in your nearest city.

Downsized meaning shrunk.  Sounds kind of like a "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids"-like story.  I think it might be good.

Beats me. CA just has a legend in his own mind trip going. I was just talking about a comic. Sounds like he's low on his lithium or something. (Activates taser).

Ha. Clever. Another witty comback from the same creative team who brought us such classics as "I know you are, but what am I" and "It takes one to know one".

What are you, like 12?

I look foward to it, the plots of these recent Futurama Comics have been really far out in a good way!

Nope.  Not at all.  I would like to see what the cover looks like so I can get an idea of what to look for.  We've seen the cover to issue #30, but we never saw one for issue #29!  Talk about irony!

I've seen the cover finally! It's got Zoidberg eating a burger, and in the burger are miniuture versions of Fry, Leela and Bender.

I'll try to find a picture.

I got mine this morning.  It had a couple of really good moments, especially that one bottle city guy's line when he catches Bender picking everybody's pockets  smile  The plot did seem a bit disjointed at times, and the humor got a bit too goofy for futurama at times... but over all, a pretty good issue.  The one thing that bugged me was that the artists didn't keep the scale the same from scene to scene.  Sometimes Fry, Leela, and Bender were an inch tall while another time they were so small that the professor needed a microscope to see them.

It's out now? Awesome, I've gotta go to Borders today.

Since when was Futurama the comic version of Active-On?

Poor Fry, Bender, and Leela... getting eaten by Zoidberg... You'd really think they'd care more. I've as of yet gotten this issue, since Hastings gets them so late.

......!!!!! We can see the professor eyes!!!! In one of the last pages Bender take the glasses off the professor eyes and we can see them. I thought that we were not supposed to see his eyes? Maybe Matt G. forgot about it or he doesn’t know about it. Weird…

I got my copy today!  Cool story!  I liked how Bender almost drank the bottle, the Logan's Run and Judge Dredd references, and we saw the Professor's eyes!  Another awesome comic!  Great from beginning to end!  The comics are just getting better and better!

Even though Matt G. owns Bongo Comics, I don't think he really has any input to the art and the stories, I'm pretty sure thats all up to the editor and creative manager Bill Morrison. So if anything, yeah, it'd just be something he doesn't know about.

I myself was shocked! Who knew my rendering of Professy Farnsworth without his glasses would be somewhat accurate?! Perhaps those could be his second set of glasses...you know, novelty eyes. Never know.

Does anyone have a scan of his eyes? I'm curious.
