    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Feb 7, 2009

    Eric Rogers crafts an engrossing story with romantic intrigue and an insidious plot hatched by a pair of arch-villains. John Delaney and Dan Davis draw down the sight gags and slapstick. Instead, they favor the accenting of Leela's sensuality as for example the strap to her slip falls coquettishly off her shoulder. Zapp and Kif look downright creepy, as do the cadets. Dan Davis' shadow-work underscores the eerie atmosphere. Add Nathan Kane's kaleidoscope of colors, and you've got yourself a perfect Futurama adventure that's more dramatic than a number of Big Stupid Events I could name. Read Full Review

    The only good thing about this comic book is Bender and his reunion with Robot House. Anything else in this comic is downright appalling. The Planet Express crew go to Mars to be camp counselors for a summer camp that's run by Amy's sorority, Kappa Kappa Wong. Cubert and Dwight are signed up to attend. to go. Zapp and Kiff are there, but the don't know Leela and Amy. As Leela tries to figure out why Zapp, Kiff, and the kids are brainwashed. As for Fry, Bender, Zoidberg, and the others instead of being curious and wanting to get to the bottom of what's going on, everyone yells at Leela and tells her she's obsessing. Leela had a right to investigate. No one else seemed to care. And they had no right to lambaste Leela It's like no one else cares but her. Bender discovers that Nixon is behind the brainwashing schem and tells Leela who's desperate to talk to Zapp. Here's where it really gets evil, Leela tries to confront Nixon after she tells him she knows his plans. and to add insult to injury, Leela gets kidnapped by Nixon, and Fry is off somewhere having fun. Leela should've beat up everyone and came out a hero! Leela is not Princess Toadstool Futurama writers! Later she's saved by Zapp, she sleeps with him again and his memory is back, and Nixon's scheme and operation is foiled! Even Kiff and Amy tried to stop Nixon. Nixon gets away and teams up with Mom. Cubert and Dwight remain under the spell. They should've been the kidnap victims in this, not Leela. In closing, read the parts about Bender and Robot House, everything else, dispose of it.
