Comics #22

Release Date: 11/23/05

Bender becomes the 31st century's newest diet guru, and before long President Nixon appoints him czar of the President's Council on Physical Fitness. But too much power in the wrong robots hands is a dangerous thing, and the physically tired and huddled masses of New New York City are soon yearning to be free of Bender's tyrannical exercise regimen.

It's a pretty good issue. The story is really Bender being as much of an evil unlikable character as possible, but that's why he's so lovable. Quite a funny issue but let down by some terrible art, really quite painfully off...

I thought the story had such a lot of potential, but it just fell a bit flat for me. There were too many plotholes. Why were the crew starving because they weren't eating Bender's food? Haven't they heard of, say, going to a shop and buying something to eat?

That said, I thought Bender being in charge of a sweatshop was fairly funny, although I did wonder how everyone in NNY was able to just leave their jobs and participate. There were some good jokes, such as when Zoidberg took off his shell, and I thought the whole Leela/Amy rivalry thing was funny.

The art was very off in numerous panels. I notice that the artist for this comic doesn't appear to have drawn for any others - hopefully, if they use him again, he will be much better now that he will have had a taste for the characters.

Overall, not as good as it could have been, let down by some quite poor art. Average, I'm afraid.

Although it does try to capture the humour of the show, there are many things which just don't work; Bender acting like a jerk in the pharaoh episode/being a bad chef etc.. These elements are old and dull, also why is Hermes eating clothes?? Nixon making shoes?? Very daft. He also looked like a bull dog when he gains weight, how is he supposed to eat anyway? Also the ending was terrible. We need more focus on other characters. Mike Kazaleh artwork was poor in places. The character models are helpful for the main cast, but other people aren

First comic I read and hilarious. The Zoidberg part was the best. To bad Farnsworth wasn't in this one.

this was't a really intresting story, and the story was kinda stupid .like czar of fitness? what the hell is that? and it looked like a failed attempt to write a funny story. None of the "jokes" were funny and the ending is stupid.
