I called bongo on the phone to see if there was a release date for "Futurama Comic's", they said it should be out November 2000.
Bill Morrison [Simpsons comics] told WonderCon XII conventioners that several Futurama comic book spinoffs are planned, including "All My Circuits", provided that the main comic book [Futurama] gains popularity. (info was taken from The Futurama Chronicles Q&A page www.frcr.com).
This year at the San Diego comic-con (July 20th through July 24th) at the San Diego Convention Center. The Bongo booth will be giving out stuff like stickers and buttons (and if it's like last year they will give Futurama stuff too). On Saturday the 22nd
Matt Groening will be there, he will be showing an upcomming futurama episode.
I talk to three writers from Futurama a few months ago and they said that they had a blast last year and are hoping to go this year.
So, if you wan't to go to the comic-con, go Saturday!!.
Go to the Official comic-con website
theres no information about Futurama or Matt Groening on that website,
I got my info about futurama being at the comic con, by call bongo Comics Group on the phone 1-310-966-6181.
