Just purchased 70, ha I am a little behind. Hope it's better than the last one I started reading, which I believe was 69.

Issue #71 (US) is due out May 28th.

Info, right from Bongo - http://www.bongocomics.com/blog/04/30/2014/may-release-dates


So it'll be June 18th for me. As my bookstore runs three weeks behind, quite often.

Can't find a full solicitation listing for Bongo's July, but TFAW has added new Simpsons issues for July and no Futurama, so #72 is looking like August.

I believe it will be August too.

Futurama is set to do only doing five issues a year now, which Bongo has done before with Futurama... but six issues a year was nice.

Switching the roles of Leela and Zapp? That sounds fun. big grin

Leela's looking fine on that cover, too. flirt

Zapp's one of very few characters for whom that outfit does no favours, really.

Hm...the scenario sounds very similar to "Branigan, Begin Again".
(Hope to be wrong about that...)

Issue #71 ("Pizza Wars") was okay, the art was great but the story so-so. It was just crammed with references to Italy and Italian stuff, and the plot literally focused on pizza. No callbacks to Fry's days at Panucci Pizza or anything, either. hmpf

I was expecting a little more since the issue was written by Jimmy Palmiotti, who (according to Wikipedia) has been working on Marvel comics since 1991, but oh well. At least we got to see Leela in a sexy outfit.

Issue #71 ("Pizza Wars") was the worst issue I have ever read.
It was not funny, the story was dumb, and all the dialogue felt forced and boring.
Even sexy Leela could not save this pizza shaped abomination.

No new issue (#72) out for August.
September now looks like the more hopeful release month.

Sorry to triple post.. but this place is pretty dead now.  facepalm

SO.. what do you guys think of only getting two issues so far this year?

Only two issues this year.. that is kinda lame.  cry

The two issues we've got so far haven't been the best, The Devil and Professor F. was waaaaay better than Pizza Wars, though. I'm looking forward to #72, the plot sounds decent enough, even if it is similar to the episode "Brannigan, Begin Again".

The plot seems really nonsensical but it should be fun. That cover art is freaking awesome. love

Came here to see what the skinny was on Futurama comics and I'm glad to see I'm not going nuts and that my subscription hasn't been cancelled at my local comic store. A shame to see less issues out this year, but I'm glad they're still going at all.

I haven't gotten the newly released September issue in the mail yet.. and already I'm more excited for the next one with robot zombies!!!
I enjoy Eric Rogers as a writer, he'll deliver more great issues... I hope.

Just read 72. The best part was the cover...

How could it possibly be any worse than the last issue, dear God!?  
I hope your wrong... but I'll see soon.

Sounds more reasonable than half of the shows episodes... werecar Bender anyone?
And I agree, the cover is the best one in awhile.

Thanks to James Lloyd's Facebook page, we now know issue #73 is called "Night of the Automated Dead". He also uploaded this little rough preview:

I didn't think #72 was that bad, it completely shits all over the dire crap that was issue #71...

I concur #71 is total garbage... maybe the worst issue ever.
And I personally thought #72 was pretty great, it felt like a mini-episode to me!
Thus, I'm excited for #73 now more than ever.

Update edit: Issue #73 is due out November 19th in the US.

Issue #73 ordered, hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week.

It's a shame they couldn't get this one out around Halloween, it being about robot zombies and all. hmpf

#73 was good. Better than any crossovers you might have heard about.

Also solicitaions for February are out. It's also in the back of today's issue.

#73 was brilliant; really, really, really enjoyed it. Strongest issue in a long time. Great story, great artwork and some great gags. Highly recommend. big grin
