Well damn this thread is depressing too, maybe I'll draw some little Futurama comic sketches and put em up to lighten the mood :p if anyone has some ideas lemme know

Its kind of sad realizing and experiences the slow Futurama decline, wish there was more to do to bring Peel back

Yeah, I got one comic on a lark a couple of years ago, and it was pretty cool.  And I started getting the calendars back in 2012 or so, but it would appear that 2017 is the last hurrah for that vehicle of Futurama expression :(

If I weren't so lazy, I'd see about getting a small run of Peel/Futurama calendars made, with Peeler-contributed art.  It would probably be way, way more work than I'd expect.  And what do I look like?  A guy who's not lazy?

lol I feel that, I think there is something we all could do but laziness and societies decline of interest in the show doesn't help to motivate me. Calendars would be pretty cool

I was at San Diego Comicon this weekend and stopped by the Bongo booth. Although they didn't confirm it, it sounded like they weren't going to be making any more Futurama comics. He did say they were hoping to release another printed trade issue that would include issue #82 and #83 at next year's SDCC. I'm guessing that will be the last though.

James Lloyd confirms the comics are dead

Great pic to go with it, at least.

That's a shame about the comics ending, but they lasted longer than I thought they would. Now they should release a giant hardback book of the complete Futurama comics, perhaps in several volumes which fit inside one large outer cardboard box.

Ooo, I'd be very much on-board for that. I stopped regularly purchasing the comics pretty early on--maybe around issue 20, if that?--but I'd always pick up the newest issue and flip through if I happened upon it at a bookstore or supermarket or comic shop.

My general impression was always that the Futurama comics were, on aggregate, of higher quality (story-wise, if not always visually) than the various Simpsons comics. I'm sure some of that can be attributed to folks with an actual relationship to the series (Patric Verrone, Eric Rogers) occasionally contributing scripts for the comics.

Failing an official anthology, when next I find myself with some disposable income, I might go about collecting the individual issues from eBay or something (that's how I came to own issues 1 through 7 or 8, if memory serves). They seem to me worth owning, in the same way the DVDs are worth owning or the (largely insipid) mobile games are worth playing: a story set in the Futurama universe is bound to be at least interesting, if not outright good.

to be honest, it was amazing that the comics outlived the show for as long as they did. Most cancelled shows wouldn't get any afterlife at all. The fact that new toys and collectibles are still being made to this day is a real testament to how great Futurama was/is. Thankful we got 83 issues. I loved them all.

Maybe I'll read them one day.

Anybody here scanned their copies?

Good news! Futurama Comics live on with Futurama Annual #1! This collects the two digital issues before the series ended. Who knows, if sales are good they might release a yearly special!

I see Bongo announced that they are no longer going to be making Simpsons comics. Guessing that might mean the end for Bongo altogether.

Bongo is closing in October and the final Simpsons comic, #245, will release. Thankfully for Futurama fans, the Futurama Annual #1 (which is the first and last issue) contains the two digital only comics (#82 and 83) meaning all of Futurama comics is in print.

Also, fingers crossed, a company like IDW picks up the publishing rights and gets better writers so we can have some slightly edgier stories.

I'm so sad to hear about Bongo closing up. Not only because it would seem to spell the end of the production of new Futurama material, but also because the camping trips of my youth, pre-Futurama were filled with Bongo trade paperbacks. Simpsons comics from the mid 1990s hit me right in the nostalgia bone.

I figured that was the end of the line for the Futurama calendars, too, but it looks like they got one more run printed:





And it's on the way from MomCorp Amazon :)

I had hoped for a 2020 calendar, in vain, until a couple of weeks ago when in another thread.I saw the reference to a 2020 calendar at the San Diego ComicCon. But nothing ever showed up online.

Que to earlier today when I was searching Amazon for something unrelated and on a lark decided to check for calendars. And I'm glad that I did :)

From the lead time and title I'm guessing that they're being printed to order, and that it's a retrospective calendar. Which is fine with me as I didn't start buying them until 2011.

So there's no trades for this series?

I think the first 20 or so issues are collected into trade paperbacks, but not any of the others.
