Storywise, the comics are the same. The main differences are the order in which they are printed, and the size. The UK comics are bigger than the US ones, they are A4 size, although they contain the same stories.

The publishing order is as follows:
UK Comic 1/US Comic 1
UK Comic 2/US Comic 2
UK Comic 3/US Comic Futurama/Simpsons Crossover 1, Part 1
UK Comic 4/US Comic Futurama/Simpsons Crossover 1, Part 2
UK Comic 5/US Comic 3
UK Comic 6/US Comic 7
UK Comic 7/US Comic 5
UK Comic 8/US Comic 6
UK Comic 9/US Comic 4
UK Comic 10/US Comic 8
UK Comic 11/US Comic 9
UK Comic 12/US Comic 10
UK Comic 13/US Comic 11
UK Comic 14/US Comic 12
UK Comic 15&16*/US Comic 13
UK Comic 17/US Comic Futurama/Simpsons Crossover 2, Part 2**

*Futurama Comics UK went monthly at this point, so the story of US Comic 13, "The Bender You Say", was split into 2 for the UK comics.
** Futurama/Simpsons Crossover 2, Part 1 was published in the UK as Simpsons Comics 103.

Presumably UK Comic 18 will be US Comic 14 (I can't see them splitting up that one, it needs to be read as one issue), and then maybe UK Comics 19 and 20 will be US Comic 15 split into 2 before UK Comics 21-24 will be the Time Bender Trilogy (US Comics 16-19). However, none of this has been confirmed as yet.

We also get more extra features in the UK, such as pull out posters and competitions, that are not in the US comics.  smile

I thought this issue was great! It's an excellent first part to the story, and I liked how they showed things that happened in the actual show. One joke I didn't get though. On the part where they were making deliveries and it was making spoofing movies, what was the movie they were making fun of when the bald guy signed the clipboard?

Something interesting to note... It looks like for the first time ever the UK will be getting a Comic before the US! The last part of the second Crossover is out here March 10th according to the UK version of the first part of the second Crossover. According to CGEF the US version will be out on March 23rd! We get it 13 days earlier!...

Hey, it looks like we in the UK get the second part of the crossover first after all!    smile

Part 2 is published tomorrow as Futurama Comics #17. My pre-ordered copy arrived today and it is a good conclusion to the story.

Is this date of March 23rd for the US version confirmed yet? I haven't seen any mention of it anywhere other than this topic.

I got it today, here's the cover...

I can't believe it came out here before the US...

edit - review time...

~SPOILERS~ I'm not going to put Spoiler tags on this as it's already been released. Back when the US Futurama Comics were first released, reviews were made way before they came out in England, and they didn't have Spoiler tags. So now it's the other way around, I don't see why I should have to put a Spoiler tags on this either...

It was a reasonable effort, but not up to the extremely high standard set by the previous Crossovers. Personally I thought that all the literary characters got in the way a bit. Having two sets of characters (Futurama/Simpsons) is more than enough to provide substantial material...

The whole issue felt a bit rushed, in terms of artwork and script (and on page 29 there's an extra "the" in Bart's speech bubble). There was simply so much more in the first part, and some really nice panel experimentation. This seemed more standard and run of the mill, but that's ok I guess. I found that some parts came off as a bit forced, however there were some genuinely classic and hilarious moments. I love how they brought the Finglonger back, and the joke they used with Bart picking Lisa's nose was hilarious! It was also great seeing Hans Moleman getting left behind in space, and the irony of Bender being used as a bottle opener by giant Homer was classic!Ö

I was a little surprised by the ending. I thought that this would be it now, what with the Futurama characters having been in The Simpsons universe, and the Simpsons characters  in the Futurama universe. However; judging by this ending, it seems not. It's a pretty clever way to end and I like it; with Mom using a piece of My Burnís hair to Clone him from. It's so open ended that it's almost inevitable that there will be another Crossover Crisis in the future. They even put a question  mark after "The End?". It was very sly of them to say that the cloning time would take one year, because that buys them just enough time to get the next Crossovers done. I don't know whether to be happy or sad about this though.  On the one hand we'll probably get more Crossovers which is great. On the other hand there was a trade paperback supposed to be coming out at the end of this year with all the Crossovers in. I'm guessing that's been tossed out of the window, or at least put on hold now that there'll likely be more to come, what a shame...

Anyway, personally I thought this was the weakest Crossover Comic of the four in total, but it was still a most clooled out Comic...

The cover looks cool. I can't wait to see how it ends (I didn't read Otis's spoilers. I want to be surprised.) I hope it's good anyways. I also stil have the question about the first crossover issue. On the part where they were making deliveries and it was making spoofing movies, what was the movie they were making fun of when the bald guy signed the clipboard?

The trade will be out January 2006. It'll have the two crossovers, Hail to the Cat from Simpsons #87 and Chili Chili Bang Bang which like Hail to the Cat is a comic we mention in the crossover and now are really doing.

I was wondering if you might do that. Ever since I saw that, I thought it would be cool if you made it an issue like Hail to the Cat. I hope it's good. Just be sure to take your time on it and make sure it stays good. I still, (again) have that question from my two previous posts. I know it's not a big deal, but it would be great if someone could answer it.... Please?

Tom123, the movie they are spoofing in this sequence is Stanley Kubric's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Wether they were going to include Chili, Chili Bang Bang was the question that came to my mind as soon as I saw it in the comic.  Can't wait to see how that story is going to play out!  I assume James Lloyd will be providing the art for that one as well?

I bought the second crossover today, and I thought that it was good. I never would have expected the ending had it not been for the cover, which is good. I like being surprised. I thought it was a great solution to the crossovers, and I liked the last bit of the issue with Mom cloning Mr. Burns. Overall, it was an excellent issue.

I picked up my copy today and I really enjoyed this ending far more than the first Crossover.  I liked how it was logical or seemed logical way to end this event. And as others have said it is left open ended to future sequls and in fact I think it would be real fun for this to be an annual thing.  OK, no I wouldn't - I think the novelty would wear off but it is nice that something could happen in the future again.
You made an interesting observation though Otis in the feeling that the issue felt rushed because what I have heard is that Titan started advertising this issue even though they were not supposed to  and technically were not supposed to print it until after Bongo printed it here in the States.  Since the word was already out on the streets the good folks at Bongo decided to let it go as is but the one big problem?  It meant they had to finish the issue 3 weeks quicker than originally intended.  Now the truth can be known.

Did anyone else in the US get a copy that the colors were not as rich and vibrant as a normal issue? Mine seemed a bit washed out and a little flat.
I loved the cover as well.  When I saw the phot from Otis I didn't really like it too much but once I got it in my hands I really do like it.  I like the inclusion of Little Green Man and all the other literary characters.  Bongo - we must have printed artwork of all 4 covers to hang on our walls!!  These 4 covers are just too good to relegate them to the covers of comic books!! They must be on my wall!!

I got my copy today! I have to say that this one was probably one of the weakest but, nonetheless, it was still really good. It had some good jokes and the ending really leaves you wanting more! (No doubt there will be).
But I give it a C+/B-

Got part 1 today, it was quite good
Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Aliens, and 2001 a space odysy, are used for some of it

Does anyone know how often the comics are released in Australia

Hmmm... got crossover 2 issue #1 the other day... initially I was a bit disappointed, but that was due to my insanely high expectations (carried over from the brilliant first crossover). Overall the art is top notch, and the story and writing are good enough, although rather underwhelming.

Off the top of my head I'd say quarterly. If you can't wait, got to a comic book store (as opposed to a newsagent).

I read and bought the Crossover 2 part1, and frankly it was overall pretty good. But Lisa and Leela only sighed through the whole thing.

Wow, Otis P Jivefunk got a version with stickers and stuff on the side, mine didn't have any of that.

Heh. As soon as I saw that Chili Chili Bang Bang gag, my first thought was "I hope they make that into a real issue". Awesome news, both on that and the paperback.

I thought the Crossover Crisis II was lame. Such a pointless story, a lame excuse for a sequel. The first original crossover was much better.
I'm going to pretend the 2nd Crossover never happened...
