By Wein and Kazaleh.

One of the benefits of living 1,000 years into the future is that all your worthless junk can suddenly become very valuable. Fry starts his own Internet auction business, but is some evil bidder doing the evil bidding of an evil biddy?

---------------------

Hmm...sounds interesting, and by the looks of it, they have a new writer on board.

The cover is interesting. I hope the story is too...not that they aren't ever even somewhat interesting in the first place...

I've been outta the loop from Futurama Comics for a while, but I plan on catching up... these latest ones look pretty good, too. I still need #25-#30 except for 28 which I got the other day. I thought it was really good too, I can't believe I forgot about this series.

If you want to get back issues, since there's no way of subscribing to them, you ought to try EBAY.  That would be your best bet for back issues.

Yes. They are. Since US #13 ("The Bender You Say", which was released as UK#15 since the UK also got the crossovers as part of their regular series), the UK has actually been getting Futurama Comics every month, however, this would mean that soon they would catch up to the US and would have a few months without the comics. To overcome this problem Titan decided to split each issue in half, so the first half of "The Bender You Say" was released as #15, while the second half was released as #16. The only issue that they didn't do this to was the "Bender Breaks Out" issue, because it would have ruined the entire premise of it.
The latest UK issue (#41) is actually the first half of US #26.

So basically, the UK is still behind the US by a couple of stories even though they have more "issues" overall.

oh - thanks - so that is probally why all of the stories are split in two and seem really short. I wish it wasn't done like that though cause it's annoying if you miss an issue

Here's a link to info about the comics; there's the US issues at the top, the Australian issues are exactly the same as them, and then below it shows the UK issues, which shows what the number of each issue "half" is:

I think it's annoying cos you pay 2.10 for 20 maybe 25 minutes of reading it! Our next one comes out 5th April... which will be the May issue. Anyone in the UK think they'll have a special edition??? Because soon it will be October and they might be on the January issue then, if you know what I mean.
Anyway cool cover art on the issue 30 (US)

I know! the whole comic is less than 40 pages long! the simpsons (costing just under 3) are nerly 80 pages. Rip Off!

and i also hate the fact that 1 issuue is split between 2 comics. It really sucks if you miss an issue.

Ok - i'm done ranting.

I just picked up my copy of issue 30 and it was good.  It reminds me of some of the early issues.

I wouldn't whine about it; the US and Australian editions of both Simpsons and Futurama Comics are only 32 pages long. And I doubt you're talking about the actual Simpsons Comics -- I don't think they'd contain 80 pages...I think you're talking about "The Best of the Simpsons" which combines two old issues together, which is the only way it'd be able to get that long.

Sorry, I'm done. No hard feelings  wink

Great new story idea! This was a fun issue, it reminded me of The Simpsons episode "Three Men and a Comic Book". I wish Gabby was seen a bit more and that the ending wasn't so abrupt. Some issues feel like I'm watching a new episode, while others (like this one) feel like a short comic book story.

I didn't think the ending was too rushed; although Mom suddenly arriving was a little bit random. I'm a fan of the stories that jump around a bit, so I thought this one was great (ie: at Grabby's house --> the sewer, Panucci's --> getting attacked by Mom). Grabby is a great character, hope we see him again.

It was a good comic, but not without it's problems. I might be being picky, but surely Panucci's would be more run down than that after 1000 years? It looked as if it came off better than the rest of Old New York for some reason. Why wasn't the auction on eBay? We know eBay still exists because in the episode 'A Leela Of Her Own' Leela is asked to sign as the name eBay. Dr Zoidberg's eyes are normally a very pale blue color, and in this issue for some pannels there were correct, and then in other pannels they were plain white. Mom coming so abruptly might have worked better if it wasn't so near the end of the comic. Other than all those problems it was quite a good issue...

Going through a lot of the comics, there's a lot of places where they haven't colored Zoidberg's eyes.

Also, about the Panucci's thing, I think it's something we should really blame on the show. Look at "The Luck of the Fryrish" -- Fry's 20th century home hasn't really changed at all over 1,000 years.

I got my copy last week.  I didn't have time to write a review because I had a family emergency.  It was a great comic, though you would think Panucci's Pizza would be torn down after 1000 years.  It was interesting, though.  Really good comic, I liked the ruins of Old New York, Mom and her sons wanting Fry's comic book, Idbay, it was great from beginning to end.  However, the ending should've had a little bit more.   Maybe have Bender repair the comic and sell it to Grabby. 
Until issue #31!
