Futurama Delivery-Boy Man Comic

Delivery-Boy Man Futurama Comic San Diego Comic Con Delivery-Boy Man, written by Philip J. Fry.
This Special Edition Futurama Comic and iTunes card were handed out at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con.

My favorite bonus features are the center-fold poster and letters to the editor section entitled: "Messages for the Messenger."

Philip J. Fry, Delivery-Boy Man:

"Delivering the Goods .... Returning the Bads!"

Characters include:

- Sergio Aragones' Moustache
- Leelis Lane (Leela)
- Boxer the Robot (Bender) "Bite my shiny metal box!"
- Invader X

This comic is based off a hilarious episode of Futurama entitled, "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences," (a must see if you've ever been to the San Diego Comic Con).

In this episode, an alien named Lrrr attempts to conquer Earth but finds himself in the middle of the Comic Con 3010 costume contest aka the Masquerade. A sub-plot involves Fry's hopes to impress his friends by creating his own comic book that features himself as a muscular super hero called "Delivery Boy Man." Fry visits the booth of Sergio Aragones' head where a sign hangs above the booth reading, "Last Actual Comic Booth."

When I was handed a copy of Delivery-Boy Man at the real San Diego Comic Con, I didn't realize that it was for an episode of Futurama that had yet to air. It was awesome when I finally saw the episode having already learned some details from the funny sub-plot.

Fry revises his comic multiple times in the Futurama episode, so you have to have a copy of the SDCC Delivery-Boy Man to know Fry's finalized story.
