    The idea of an alien species based upon man's best friend could have been the sole source of entertainment gravy, but Verrone, Lloyd, Pepoy and Kane break from the leash to deliver a cleverly plotted and visually arresting issue of Futurama Comics. Read Full Review

    This comic is a MUCH better improvement from issue #41. This came out around the time Into The Wild Green Yonder was released. And at that time, it seemed like Futurama was gone for good after that. So at that time, I settled for the comics. Onto the comic. This is another story surrounding Fry's dog from the 20th century Seymour. In the beginning, everyone suspects everyone else for stealing from one another. Fry is upset that someone has kidnapped Seymour. Zoidberg discovers a footporint. Then Fry, Leela, and Bender head to the Planet Sirius K9, a Planet of the Dogs if you will. All the dogs there want the crew to take then out for walks, beg them, and act like typical dogs. Bender has some funny lines in this, especially quoting Charleton Heston's famous, "Damn You All To Hell!" They arrive on the all dog planet and all the dogs there tell the Crew that Seymour is their god. Fry, Leela, anbd Bender break into the temple and steal back Seymour, a chase ensues. Little did they know that the pedestal Seymour was on sounded off an alarm, then the planet Sirius K9 declares war on Earth! Seymour had a collar on that sounded a signal for the dogs to make their move! Linda and Morbo report it on the news. Zapp being the dope that he is surrenders to the dogs. We see a cameo apperance from the Number 9 Guy. A very colorful and imaginative comic book for dog lovers and Futurama fans alike. WAY better story than Jurassic Bark. Also liked the stages of pet grief Fry feels in this. Moronic Anger, Unfounded Optimism, Annoying Nostalgia, Stubborn Idiocy, Larceny, and Acceptance. Highly recommend this one!
