    The repetition of a famous Simpsons episode, the higgledy-piggledy plot threads so very loosely laced and the hit to the art forces me to recommend this issue of Futurama Comics only for completists. Read Full Review

    This was one fun comic book. You can't go wrong with Futurama in 2010. Cool new episodes on Comedy Central, and the comic books from that year ruled! Like this one right here. Dummy Up is the title. Leela learns she has too much stress in her life after a date with Cthulhu failed and Bender beat him up. Leela is then sent to a yoga class and sees Zoidberg and Fnog is there. Leela later gets put on some pills that make her believe things are talking to her. The best part of this comic is Benders ventriloquist puppet, Small Fry. Bender becomes like Richard Pryor and starts doing stand up with Small Fry that proves to be a big success. Then a Childs Play scenario happens when Small Fry tries to kill Fry and wrecks havoc in Planet Express. Then later it's revealed there's more dummies, one of Bender, Leela, and Hermes as well. In the end Bender didn't get his own TV show, instead it went to his dummy counterpart, and Leela gets a mental voice chip put in her to reject Frys advances. Super awesome characterization and one thrill after another when you get this comic book.
