I didn't see a thread for this, so I'm making one.

I picked this up while I was at Comic-Con last week: it's the 2010 calendar, hot off the press!



My camera didn't like the glossy cover, which is why it's so blurry (sorry!), but the I think this is the more interesting stuff anyway:




Anyway, the calendar is supposed to hit stores in August.

Awesome. I have yet to buy a Futurama calendar (I know, I know--and I call myself a fan?), but I'm liking the theme here. I'd be honored to pin this calendar up on my bedroom wall and write reminders of important appointments and social obligations on it all year long.

Neat. At least the December pic has Fry and Leela hugging each other in fear.

Also they should have had Amy hugging Bender, instead of Zoidberg.

I like June with Blernsball Leela!
I'm starting to think that we need another episode with the New Justice Team

True, but the calendar artist probably didn't know that an Amy-slash-Bender pairing was planned for an episode.

Still, Amy hugging Zoidberg.  Eeeeuuuu!  His stinkgland would overpower her Chanel # 5 and stick to her sweatsuit - she'd have to burn it to get the odor off...

It looks good! It's nice to see that they're continuing with the whole "themed" idea.

I like it the way the calendar has it.

What?

Hey, I'm old but I'm still a guy.  When I'm 90 years old I'll still appreciate the woman's shapely ASSets.

You know, I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out, but now that I do: good lord! That looks painful.  Or at the very least incredibly annoying.

OK then, for the sake of an enquiring mind...

...

Actually, it's not that bad. I mean, I wouldn't like to do a lot of running around - chafing - but there's a lot less friction/sensation than you'd imagine.

Maybe I'm over-thinking it, but for reasons unknown I always imagined her suit to be made of fairly thick/stiff material rather than the standard spandex fare, hence the "painful."  This unrelated comic doesn't help. :P

That calendar looks beautiful. I think I'll have look for it when it comes out in WH smiths, 'cause I don't think that only amazon are selling it.

I'm glad matt groening drew the pictures, and not the people who draw for the futurama comics. Those guys suck at drawing futurama the way we like it.

Matt doesn't draw anything, he just has him name on it.
Have you ever seen Matt draw? it's not pretty.

And another thing, the comics are excellently drawn, except those by Mike Kazaleh.

Hi Everyone

John Delaney here. I'm the artist who did all the drawings for the Futurama 2010 Calender. Glad the response has been so positive. It was a very fun project to work on and while I have contributed to previous calenders this is the first one where I got to do every month's drawing. The cover is drawn by Bill Morrison.
I also draw for the comic and my last issue was #43

Cheers
John

I like Mike's stuff. Every artist on the Futurama comics brings their own thing. I think thats what makes art so cool

I dunno.  I mean, Futurama in itself has a certain line.  While you can attend a different style, such as manga, etc., there is something wrong by attempting to do so in the "official" works (I am sort of an authority type, even when it comes to canon, etc.).  While I realise everyone draws slightly different, the scans I have seen of Mike's pencil is way off from what I'd expect from a Futurama comic.

I mean no offence, but there is a difference between having different styles and drawing well.

You, Tom King, James Lloyd, You all draw slightly in your own style and it all looks good.

But with all do respect, saying that you like Mike's "style", many people would think you were delusional.

But i'm sure its just along the lines of "First rule of the working world - never say anything bad about your coworkers unless you have the power to fire them."

But to call this, THIS a style.




Off model characters, completely wrong hairstyles, eyes on the side of the face backwards/gigantic heads.



That is all I have to say.

Good to have someone official drop by. While the overall impression of the comics and calendars is good, I think more of you guys should put in little bits of continuity between issues. Not trilogy-level continuity, but recurring characters/themes that began in the comics like Space Boy, or James Lloyd's sneaky cameos of the Needy Newbies in #39 after their major role in #3 or that one particular presidential guard/secret service agent in #6/#35 (different colour in the two issues indicates he didn't tell everyone at Bongo he had reused the character).

More on topic, I'll probably pick this up when it becomes Australia's 2011 calendar.

I know myself and James Lloyd often sneak in little bits of continuity. For me I'm a real robot freak so whenever the script has a scene with a nondescript city scene or non descript robot it it I'll usually go through the episodes to find some background robots from Mom's Day or some other episode and put them in. Same thing with crowd scenes. I'll often grab BG characters from episodes and pop them into a crowd scene as well as various artists and editors from Bongo. I'll Futurama-them and pop them in there. Nathan Kane, Bill Morrison, James Lloyd, Ian Boothby and of course Matt have all made appearances. I know James added me into an issue as well.
I don't know how many of you know this but James Lloyd, Ian Boothby and I all live in Vancouver BC Canada. So we bump into each other a bit. James and I often hang out together over glasses of beer. :laff:

Hey John, thanks for dropping by, big fan of your work. :)

You were definitely the right pick for the art on this calendar, your style suits the comicbook covers very well.
