The animation industry targeted print & web publication Animation Magazine
dedicated their currently selling December/January cover story to Futurama. Asking "Kiss this shiny metal ass goodbye?!
" and "Is Futurama History?
", the article both lauds and comforts this year's fifth installment of Futurama on FOX. Quoting executive producer and co-creator David X. Cohen
"We're all taking jobs elsewhere. [...] We were just ahead of the big wave of primetime animated shows and now we might be the ebbing tide."
the magazine also includes a full page advertising bought out by law firm KMZRosenman to congratulate Futurama.
The ultimate answers to the questions posed will probably not arrive for another few months, but getting Futurama into the news and heads of people surely can only help.
