It costs 1.99 and it only has 36 pages! Bongo Comics should be ashamed of themselves. Plus, it only comes out every two months. Simpsons Comics has 52 pages and it manages to come out every month. Hmm... getting lazy at Bongo, I see...

No, 1.99 is a bargain, I pay equal to 3 for each issue, and most comics are equally priced. I think 3 is cheap, 1.99 is "on sale".

The reason there is more issues of Simpsons comics, is beacause it's more popular. Sad, but true. Everybody know the Simpsons, and there are litterally hoardes of people bying each issue (mostly because it's the Simpsons, not bacause of individual quality in the stories, I don't know, I don't buy them).

Welcome to PEEL, Pharoah (typo) Bender. Enjoy it here.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Ooh, it is a typo. Could a moderator or something change it for me? Thanks in advance.

I think the fact that they don't do it every month is good, because it means they can take their time on it and hop0efully produce a higher quality comic.

Not really. I get mine from Atomic Comics in Chadwell Heath! And I don't get them for a bad prize!

I bought the first trade paperback of the first 4 issues. That's the first 4 AMERICAN issues, so not the crossover, and the book is published in the UK. Pretty weird but anyway it was about 10 and frankly for the quality of the stories I think 2.50 per comic would be a small price to pay for some Futurama.

If you find a comic shop it is the same price in American Dollers as it is in English Pounds

You can do that yourself with the edit button below your post  smile

Also i get the UK ones and the US import ones, both cost 2. I'd rather get the US ones, but i only started on issue #10 or something.

He's talking about the typo in his account name (Pharoah Bender).

Only solutions are: a) live with it, or b) reregister.

Er, wouldn't Titan Publishing be at least partly responsible for the pricing on the UK Futurama Comics?
