The finest website for under three Nixon funbucks

Heheh. Ok, so I hear you wondering, what's that all about and why are Leela and Amy posing with Zapp Brannigan in a cheap champagin ad? Well, to save you a long winded explanation I'll just point you to Gulliver63's long winded explanation, which we call a Fan Fiction in these parts. This one is called Zapp Brannigan and the Planet of Women, which is one of those titles that make me say “Thank ${DEITY} for cut and paste”. But more to the point, finally the tale can be told. Universal space adventurer Zapp Brannigan finds himself in serious trouble on the Planet of Women. Will he be executed? Will he become a pet? Will he get lobotomized? Grab a glass of champagin, nuke some casa-dillas and enjoy Zapp's most thrilling adventure yet.


And now for a little Fan Comic action, here at long last are three new very dense pages of Inquisitor Hein's comic 30. The Inquisitor says that some over-stressed eyes have been slowing him down as of late, and thinking about Pieter's problems with his hand he concludes that it seems like the Madhouse does not have the youngest contributors of Futurama fan comics. This webmaster will be pardoned for editorilizing, I'm sure, if I climb up on my soap box and say they may or may not be the youngest, but they are among the best. Oh, and I might also mention that the new stuff starts on Page 44.


And to complete our three for three special today Zoey Webber has a new Fan Fiction. It's called Strike Back and in it Farnsworth drags everyone to a Career Opportunities Expo for people who work at delivery services. There's nothing for Zoidberg until he finds a Prank Club. Zoidberg will do whatever it takes to be a part of the club. Chaos comes around when Fry and Bender get pranks played on them. Leela has a plan to set Zoidberg straight. But that doesn't stop Zoidberg from pulling off the ultimate prank ever! Zoidberg just might win.......question is....does Zoidberg EVER win?

Let's get back on track

Like Bender sez, “I'm back, baby!” I've been gone most of the last month and haven't been able to update, so I've got a bunch of stuff backed up so it's time to get things cleaned out (more on that at the end of this update). Anyway, a huge thank you to the various contributors, some of whom have been waiting nearly a month, for the patience. And one such is kaspired. There's a story behind this picture - you see I had the privilege of meeting kaspired face to face back in April (along with a couple of the other denizens hereabouts) and we got to sharing stories and pictures of what we do when we're away from 'ramaland. I showed him a pic of my model train and within about 15 minutes he'd sketched this. A couple of months later and we have the finished version. It certainly looks like Leela found the “go fast” lever and is giving Fry the ride of a lifetime (probably not quite what he had in mind). How many characters can you spot in there?


Next up, a couple of Fan Fictions. The first is from Missy and it's a little piece of basic, sweet, post-series Fry/Leela fluff called Once Around.


The next one is from a new contributor who goes by the moniker of Strudol. Schlee's got a story called Robocalypse Now. This is part 1, so keep your eyes and search engines peeled for more to come, but meanwhile a deadly robot revolution has begun in New New York and has dire consequences for Fry, Leela, and the Planet Express crew.


And lastly for today, we get back to clearing things out with a new Fan Comic from Pieter Antonissen called Proctology of Interest. It seems Leela has lost a boot, and Amy may know where it is.
Future world problems
Posted on August 4, 2014 by Tim
I'm back finally. At least for a few days. I'm suffering severely from a bad case of Summeritis, compounded by too much vacation time, a serious first world problem to be sure. Anyway, it seems like they'll have those in the future too, and I know that 'cause I've got a couple of new Fan Fictions that say so. They're both by Robert Stewart who happens to be friends with and a coworker of Gulliver63, who did the cover art you see here. The art is for Robert's first story Yes, There are 2 Interns, in which PE gets not one but two new interns to replace the recently graduated Amy Wong. This may be fine for the company, but it's sure to cause problems for certain members of the crew. Robert's second tale is The End of Futurama - not a very promising title so be prepared for some pathos and passion, and music too.


And that's all I have time for tonight. I've got several more things that I hope to get put up before I head for the lake and the land the Internet forgot next weekend. So stay tuned.
