Wow, thanks Bendo! That calender art isn't amazing, but it's a lot better than the image at the top of this thread. Nice to see some artwork up for Adventures too, looking forward to the TPB since I've only read the first one!

I vote Bendo for PEEL janitor!

Not that amazing? This is some of the best stuff yet! (Perhaps you did not read my update?) I was really floored by the image. All the images really and was glad to see Bongo continuing on with the development of Futurama through images such as these. Needless to say I am excited to see the final product in glorious real-life-a-vision.

Oh I liked seeing the final art, and the TPB art too, just didn't think it was the best calender art I've seen. I really liked the 2003 art, but that could only really be done once, and the 2004 art was pretty cool too. Hopefully the art for each month will be better than the 2004 calender though, this year's has been a boring on the inside  frown

Wow, that looks really great! I don't know what you're complaining about Kazz, that's easily one of (if not THE) best covers yet. Wish we could see inside, but I guess i'll have to wait a few month. Anyway I've pre-ordered mine from Amazon a few weeks ago. Infact all the preview art for up-coming Bongo stuff looks good, although the cover for issue 18 (found at the back of the newly released #17) looks like it needs a bit more detail or maybe something else going on in the cover?

Holy wow! thank god that the other shitty artwork wasn't the final one after all, woo! That new cover looks so cloolsome, I love it, and after seeing that I'm dying to see inside! Thanx Bendo, and at last we have an update for your awesome site. And I agree with M Jackson on the cover of Futurama Comics #18, it's too plain and boring, it needs something else, or a completely new cover!...

I am told that Ian Boothby came up with all the concepts for the art inside. I do not believe there to be a unifying theme but if nothing else they have a unifying creator.
I also agree that this is the best cover art yet for a calendar followed closely by the 2001 and 2003 calendars, although the 2001 calendar is hands down the best interior art. Of course we have not seen what is in store for us with the 2005 but for now 2001 is definitely tops.

I agree about 2001 having the best interior art, and I guess that's why they chose that Calendar to make the Giclee's from...

It would be nice if the 2005 calender had a "What If?" theme, with scenes from what if episodes that were never written.

Yeah that would be clool, but didn't some of the Comics use those unused ideas up already?... unless there's still more of course... Actually, I'd have thought the 2005 Calendar would have a theme, because every odd numbered calendar (2001 and 2003) has so far, who knows...

The 2001 interior art does rule.  I like the style, especially when applied poster style like the SP3K poster.  I wish they'd make other episode posters like that.  One for "Roswell That End Well" would be cool.

I've got to make sure I order the calender today when I get home.  Otherwise i'll keep forgeting and the damn thing will sell out.

Ok, I *really* need to get the three calenders that came before 2003! They sound like they have some good artwork, especially the ones from 2001 which I've seen.

Really wish Matt would get in touch with the poster company who made the other two and see about making others. I know it's GB Posters who print the UK ones, don't know if they actual produce them worldwide.

How hard are those other calenders to get? I have not seen any on eBay yet, what would be a fair price on something like that? opinions please?

Chances are you'll really have to pay through the nose to get a calender from eBay. I've seen them going for more than 30, which is about $50/55.

I would agree with Kazza, they do show up from time to time on eBay but the earlier ones can get expensive. I have not seen an auction in awhile selling the calendars but if you keep your eye open you will.

If I remember correctly, Amazon.com didn't have the 2004 calender listed until about a month before release, but Amazon.co.uk had it ages before.

Don't get worried until a few days before release. If it comes to it, I'm sure a friendly PEELer would mail one to you  smile

Yeah, I just preordered the 2005 Calender from Amazon.com this week.  It's definitely there.  I did a search for "Futurama" to find it.  What makes is difficult is that the calender is way down on the list of things that the site search engine returns to you.  I think there was a bunch of crap on the list that wasn't even really Futurama related listed above the calender.

I'd say it's maybe not quite as good as the 2004 Calendar, but only just. It's by no means bad at all, and it has a couple of the best images out of all the calandars! Also, I really dig the cover, it's like 'The Deep South', but in space    cool

btw Kazzahdrane, just a word of warning. By around Xmas last year, the Calendar was in very short supply and a lot of people never managed to get one because they were sold out. Just a word of warning, not saying that will happen this year, but you never know...

Where do you get the calendar? I want one for Christmas, or now. Is it a page-a-day calendar, pin-up, or what?

I got mine from Amazon.com. It's a pin-up monthly wall calendar. If you go into the "Futurama Shrines" thread you can see a photo of it, along with all the other Futurama Calendars...

Meh, I got both the last 2 calendars from Amazon for the last 2 Xmas'. Should be fine, if not I will get angry and destroy things.

Slightly worried that you say it's not as good as the 2004 one, since I think this year's calendar really stinks a bit. But then I did like the comics in the 2003 one, which a lot of people seemed to dislike.

Hopefully you'll be fine then...

I wouldn't worry about the 2005 Calendar, it's still cloolsome and all. I liked the comic style in the 2003 and 2001 Calendars as well, I think those two are the best. Although I also really liked the 2004 Calendar, some of the images are really nice. I had hoped the 2005 one would have been in comic style, seeing as every odd-numbered Calendar so far has been. Unfortunately that is not the case though. It's done in the same way as the 2004 one, but with so little new Futurama stuff coming out, I'll gladly take whatever I can get  cool
