The UK comics are in totally different order, and 'DOOP the Right Thing' hasn't even came out here yet, despite us being on issue #6! They totally screwed up the order here, in much the same way Fox did airing the actual episodes. I also get the US editions so I'm alright, but for anyone who doesn't, and lives in the UK, Futurama-O-Rama is highly recomended. I've got that too, and it rules!  cool

So, if I'm only going to buy one, the US edition is the one to go for, right?

I don't get why they bother changing the release order for the UK.  Why do it?  They have the issues done for the US release, wouldn't it be more cost effective to release them in the same order over there?

They're doing it differently to theme it around a current event. Last year, the AOI Bendernator issue was released at the same time T3 was in cinemas and DOOP The Right Thing was released around Valentine's Day.

The issue numbers were messed up right from the beginning when they released The Simpsons crossover issues as regular issues, rather than specials.
