    cxPulp - Blake Petit Feb 2, 2011

    Like approximately 50 percent of all Futurama stories, we kick off this issue with the crew being given a package to deliver to a distant planet. What they think is a shipment of food, though, turns out to be a highly volatile substance ordered by a group of cannibal robots attempting to cast off the shackles of an evil corporation controlling their destiny. Truly, only in Futurama can one type such a sentence. Anyway, Fry, Bender and Leela set out to free the robots and both destruction and hilarity ensue. The problem with this issue is that it actually gets a little too broad for the humor to be effective. With a set-up like this, Eric Rogers is set to mock any number of war or disaster movies, but instead of focusing on any specific targets, he gives us a kind of generic sci-fi story. There are good puns and gags, but nothing to make this story stand out, especially in contrast to other, better Futurama tales. --Blake M. Petit Read Full Review
