Source on season 7 titles

Hi! Do you have a source to go with this edit? - akitalk 18:21, 19 August 2011 (CEST)

Don't worry, I fixed it. --Sviptalk 18:35, 19 August 2011 (CEST)

PNG

When you take a screenshot, please make it a PNG instead of a JPEG, so it will not have to be replaced afterwards. Sanfazer 23:07, 9 October 2011 (CEST)

Volume 5

Why did you capitalise "limited edition"? Sanfazer (talk) 22:35, 22 November 2011 (CET)

  • It's neater.
Well, wikis are not about being "neat". They are about being correct. So, as there is nothing about the words "limited" and "edition" that requires capitalisation, I shall undo your edit. Or did you have an additional reason for it? Sanfazer (talk) 22:46, 22 November 2011 (CET)
Do whatever you want.
Okay, then. It's been undone. Thanks for clearing this up. Sanfazer (talk) 22:51, 22 November 2011 (CET)

Comic covers

Are the images with which you replaced those of the original covers images of U.K. covers or are they just as original? If they are images of U.K. covers, the old ones should probably be restored. Sanfazer (talk) 22:46, 17 March 2012 (CET)

I took them all from Bongo's website, so yeah, they're the American covers. Not hard to tell, the UK covers have side bar on them and wouldn't say $. :p DannyJC13 (talk) 22:49, 17 March 2012 (CET)
Oops. Didn't notice that. However, what I meant by "original covers" was "first-edition covers", not "American covers". Your images must be from a later edition. I'm going to put the other ones back. Sanfazer (talk) 22:55, 17 March 2012 (CET)
I only did it because it was better quality. I mean, does the edition really matter? DannyJC13 (talk) 23:04, 17 March 2012 (CET)
I'd say so - because, for one thing, the colours differ in some of them. Also, these could be re-added as alternate covers. (See the infobox in the Monkey Sea, Monkey Doom! article.) What a shame that I didn't think of this a few minutes ago... If I get the chance, I may do it tomorrow. In the meantime, feel free to do it yourself. Sanfazer (talk) 23:22, 17 March 2012 (CET)
From what I've seen the covers on the Bongo website are the first edition covers, and there's never been second printings of Futurama single issues in the US as far as I'm aware. I've compared the Australian print of Common Clod to the two and the colour is about half way. Rust in Piece, which I've got the US edition of is a slightly different colour to the Bongo website one, but that is closer. The difference is probably caused by ink/paper quality. We get the covers from one of three sources:
  • The solicitation, which usually has a slightly different colour to the final version, sometimes completely different, and often lacks the title caption that goes on the final one. The only advantage is that it is available 3 months ahead of the others.
  • A scan of the actual print comic, these ones are the only version with a barcode, but may be effected by the quality of the scanner.
  • Version from Bongo website, starting from issue #50 when the site launched I replaced the solicit version with their version rather than looking for, or scanning, a print version for the main image (I did, however, scan the wrap around cover).
If there are alternate US printings of any comic (I think #1 is the only one with two printings) we need all versions. - Quolnok (talk) 04:10, 18 March 2012 (CET)
So the new images are preferred, right? The new images for "Rust in Peace" and "Futurama Comics 60" are the ones with the most different colours. The new images for "Who's Dying to Be a Gazillionaire?" and "Robot Santa's Little Helpers" are missing the Bongo logo and a planet respectively. The pages for the first two should have both images. What should the pages for the second two have? Sanfazer (talk) 15:25, 18 March 2012 (CET)
