Futurama Comics, 2000-2008
English | 44 PDF | 322 MB
Futurama Comics is a comic book series published by Bongo Comics and based on the television series Futurama. It has been published bi-monthly in the United States since November 2000 (apart from a brief break for the crossover) until 2003 and is now quarterly. It has been published in the United Kingdom (with an altered order) and Australia since 2002 and three trade paperbacks have been released. During the production hiatus between 2003 and 2006 it was the only new Futurama material being made.
In the year 3000, the crew of the Planet Express delivery company make cargo shipments to unusual planets, as well as having adventures back on Earth. The characters are Philip J. Fry, a man from the 20th century who was cryonically frozen for 1,000 years, cycloptic ship captain Turanga Leela, and an alcohol-fueled, troublemaking robot Bender. The comic will often make more use of supporting or minor characters than the series, such as Cubert Farnsworth, the Robot Devil and Inez Wong.
Each issue consists of at least one story of around 27 pages (occasionally brief stories also appear), and a letters and fanart page. There are also full-page mock advertisements marketing futuristic products (such as Brain Slugs), which parody the kinds of coupon offers found in other comic books.
Special editions of some issues are published on occasion; a variant of the first issue available only at Comic Con 2000 featured a golden background, rather than red.
In a similar vein to the parent series, each issue features a humorous caption on the cover (for example, "Made In The USA! (Printed in Canada)"). These captions also vary according to where it is sold. Each issue is a self-contained story which lasts one issue (though the Time Bender Trilogy spanned four issues) and it is printed in the standard 6" x 10" size.
In 2002 it was announced that a special two-part crossover with the characters of Simpsons Comics would be printed. The mini-series was written by Ian Boothby and pencilled by James Lloyd. It was followed by another special in 2005.
