I didn't know if there was a thread about these already, but GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

I e-mailed Bongo about the possibility of anymore paperbacks, and they said:

Dan

We are getting close to our 60th issue of Futurama Comics, and we are itching to do another trade collection. However, the trick is getting our book publishing partners on board with the idea. Now that Futurama has new life on Comedy Central, we are hoping to rejuvenate our Futurama book publishing plans as well.

All the best,

Good to know, I dunno why they ever stopped. They need to carry on starting with the oldest comics not yet published and take it from there. That's what I hope they do anyways. Maybe also up the number of comics within each TPB...

I don't get why they have issues publishing new ones. Sonic comics are being whorred out in TPBs. They've got like three or four lines of them now. Good to hear they want to do more. I don't have the oldest issues and like reading all of them in TPB format to preserve the originals in their glory.

i'd buy it.

cuz it's expensive to buy them individually. and i've never seen them on eBay.(in lot form) i've read a couple at the comicbook shop i buy my figures at. but they never have any of the first 20.

I think The Simpsons Futurama Crossover Crisis is the only one that was published as a hardcover.

That would be quite expensive I imagine...

Worth it though. They've done it with several other comics, on high quality paper and brilliantly presented in slipcases full of all sorts of extra artwork. As DannyJC13 said they did it with The Simpsons-Futurama Crossover Crisis and that's an awesome quality product to behold...

Of course for the whole lot it'd be huge and would probably need a giant slipcase with several volumes encased within. I'd buy it though. I bought The Simpsons episode guide for Seasons 1-20 and people said they’d never make that, but they did. Plus I got it for less than a sixth of the RRP, but yeah tongue...
