It's out, therefore it's time for this:

"Hello lawsuit!"
- Paramount lawyer after reading the latest issue

Finally, the new Futurama Comic is out!
This time the PE Crew end up in a freak show, more or less voluntary,
and it's up to Leela to get them out of there. But some are quite happy
with their new life, especially Fry, who has fallen in love with one
of the freaks!

It sure is a good one, the drawing is good and it doesn't really matter, that there is a huge hole in the plot. After all, we have seen Fry's belly before, and never anybody said anything about. Nor have we ever seen his 'outie' before.

I only wish this issue had been a little longer, it's just because I'm curious
what happened afterwards...

I thought it was pretty disappointing.

For one thing, would it have killed Mr. Delaney to actually find out what Beek-tor (seen in PYHOMS and IITM) actually looks like?

the original guy was veek-tor i think the guy in the comic was a new charactor, like with the Free Waterfall family where right when you think you've gotten rid of the last one a new one shows up.

Did they really mean Victor from Malfunctioning Eddie's? I don't think so.
At least that's my opinion. I think Beek-tor was just another slimmy spaceship salesman.

Actually to me he looked like the Thundercougarfalconbird car salesman from Put Your Head on my Shoulder. Not Victor who sold Amy her car but the one that tried to get Fry to buy a car.
This issue was only so-so for me. After the great issue last time around I was really expecting more out of this. The art was only OK and I really couldn't get that into the story. I think after issue 11 I was expecting the series to go in a little different direction but this issue was par for the course of most others.
On another note it was nice to see the Bongo Beat back again. Lots of great candid shots of the Bongo staff working and working at having a good time. One question though, why so secretive about the new digs?

I wasn't very keen on the story concept, but they pulled it off pretty awesomely. It was suprisingly engrossing. Good storylines for all the characters, that very nicely and neatly linked up together. Some cool art, and quite funny in places too  :)

Not one of my favourites.
