I'm making brand new guide pages, on a count of the old ones really suck! The first five episodes are done so far. gotfuturama.com has them under fan art, and scanartcentral.net has 3 of them. The other 2 will be on it on the weekend so I am told. Well, I just wanted to know if you thought they were better compared to the old ones. Well, I guess you can see comparisons here.

And here's the new one, which is a double page. All of them will be double pages to fit more info.
New Version
I also added the Original Airdate Nielsen Ratings and a References box for... references. I'm working on "My Three Suns" and if I work hard enough, I might get all 4 seasons done before Season 5 starts, so when it does, I can concentrate on that only.

"Rosebud... Yes, Rosebud frozen peas. Full of country goodness and green pea-ness. ...wait, that's terrible. I quit! ...just a handful for the road. ...oh, what luck. There's a french fry stuck in my beard."

my edit thingy also is my complaint  tongue They are freaking huge due to being pictures. If you ever manage to get these into native HTML, that would be nice.

The other thing is that you'd be shot down by fox if they ever were to do a guide themselves, of course.

looking good, but couldn't you 'tone down' the colours and get some matching colours, pink and orange just don't go together... otherwise good

Hey, this isn't fashion. They're books. Pink and orange will go together when I tell them to go together. And also sorry about the freaking huge pictures, mArc.

yeah, that makes it hard to put them on sites... when they're huge and visited alot, they generate lotsa traffic... I love them though, since you've been submitting them I've been a great fan, so keep up the good work

I think that HTML guides would be better, but I like them anyway...

I like them, but if you could web-site them they'd be miles better/easier.

GIF is a better format for solid-colored images like the ones in your guides. The JPEG compression method "wants" to smooth out contrasting colors, and that's why your images look washed out. Otherwise, looking good! I'm a big fan of the chibi Futurama characters.

I've considered re-opening my old guide page site, but I figured maybe it would do better on sites that are more popular. Solution: I'll keep 'em on both. And they're not chibi, dammit! I tried to make them regular size this time!
