This was a good issue. I so got most of the Twilight Zone references.

Another great tagline to start off the comic. I'm glad that they have continued in the tagline tradition after the cartoon. (I'm still hoping for "Bender's Back, Baby" for the upcoming movie/cartoon.)

For the most part, this story would work quite well as a future episode in the series. And in a story all about irony, it does a very nice job of keeping on that topic throughout.

Just some nitpicking, on page 27, it may have helped to have a broken watch lay on the ground near Bender's feet. And to re-use the gag from the show of someone's eyes falling out of their sockets within the Scary Door Zone... Hmm.. I was rather dissapointed with that. And as for the ending, with the trio porting back into a cell, I thought you would have finished the set up by Bender from earlier in the book where he is looking for a universe where robots enslave humanity. But then again, I guess that wouldn't be ironic, except that they wouldn't really be transported out from the Scary Door.

There are a few background jokes that add to the subtle details in the show, but more certainly wouldn't hurt. I would also like to see some more character defining detail on even the throw-away characters, like the hell tormentors.

But really, the jokes were all spot on and timed well with the panels. After the story though I did find myself upset. I just wish there was space left for Bongo/Futurama news. There isn't much news on the web when it comes to Futurama, and that used to be a rather nice spot to get Futurama news.

Oh, and I hate having to import doubles of the comics because the Europe versions of the same comics are larger and come with doodads. Not fair! Show USA some lovin'! Oh, and more than six a year would be wonderful, but I'll take what I can get. And bonus points for have ads in the comic for GameTap/Sam and Max, the new game.

It felt a lot like a Futurama episode to me, much like Farnsworth Parabox and 300 Big Boys. I enjoyed Bender's side-story the best, as he usually found loop holes in the ironic outcomes. I'd always been waiting on a Scary Door story, and this gave me it. Alot of thanks go to this comic's writer on a job well done. This could definetly be an episode.

Another class issue, but not as good as 26.
The artwork was pretty good, the story rocked and there were a lot of funny parts in it.
Overall, very goooooood, but WHERE THE HELL HAS JAMES LLOYD GONE?

I have been a Futurama fan since the beginning and would have to say I love the Twilight Zone references the most. I was very delighted with this comic.
