Oscar Wilde once said, “Most modern calendars mar the sweet simplicity of our lives by reminding us that each day that passes is the anniversary of some perfectly uninteresting event.” Well, Matt Groening is about to make your humdrum lives a little more exciting. Resist the mundane and take a daily journey through the odd and unexpected with both the 2019 Futurama Fun-in-the-Sun Calendar and It’s the Life in Hell 2019 Calendar.

School may be out, but with temperatures on the rise, you’ve got a different set of problems than just trying to make it to class on time. How do you stay comfortable when summer swelter is absolutely surrounding you?  I say crack open an ice-cold Bongo comic to cool things off! And if you’re the Bongo Crew, you pack your bags and head down to San Diego Comic-Con International for a little hobnobbing with some of the greatest comic book lovers in the Western Hemisphere!


Yes, convention season has rolled around once again. This year at the beloved Bongo booth we’ll have posters, fans, calendars, trade paperbacks, swag, and even a comic book or two. Matt Groening (the Big Boss himself!) has been known to stop by for an occasional autograph. There will even be a joint panel with our SpongeBob Comics buddies from United Plankton Pictures, where we discuss the ins and outs of making your favorite funny books. If you’re in town, why not come by and hang out? We’d love to see what’s shakin’ with you!

A frozen fish stick has fallen into Bikini Bottom--and the savage cave-creature that emerges from the melted ice is wreaking prehistoric havok. Can SpongeBob tame this invader from above? Find out in "No More Mister Ice Guy!" Then Squidward figures out that "One Little Lie" can keep SpongeBob away--but there are consequences. Consequences that include a conga line! All this plus stories by Sam Henderson, Dean Haspiel, Jacob Chabot, and a cut-paper comic by Maëlle Doliveux!

By Bob Flynn


In a 24-page adventure, SpongeBob must save Bikini Bottom from "The Menace of the Mola Mola!" Indy cartoonist Bob Flynn (Nursery Rhyme Comics, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time) takes our favorite fry cook on a fantastic voyage into the belly of a behemoth–a giant freakish fish that has blotted out the sun and plunged Bikini Bottom into darkness! Can SpongeBob save the day? Also: Patrick searches for the right pet in a comic by Charise Harper (Fashion Kitty); and Plankton shrinks down SpongeBob in a Little Nemo-esque spread by Jed Alexander. Plus the usual James Kochalka (Glorkian Warrior) nuttiness in "SpongeFunnies" and the usual informative aqua-facts by Maris Wicks (Primates)!

This year, the SpongeBob Comics Annual-Size Super-Giant Swimtacular charts a course for the future--in science-fictional dystopian yarns like “Mermaid Man 39,616 AD,” “SpongeBob ConsumerPants,” “Bikini Bottom Wasteland,” and “Planet of the Squids.” They're all framed by a piratey tale drawn by comics legend Ramona Fradon! Plus, enjoy Patrick's singular vision of things to come in “The Future is Wow” by James Kochalka, and a back cover pinup by Jake Parker (Missile Mouse) showing all your underwater pals as maritime mechanical robots!

By Brian Smith, Derek Drymon, Robert Leighton, Jerry Ordway, Jacob Chabot


In “Deranged Detector,” Mr. Krabs MUST know the answer to the question: “What has SpongeBob got in his pocket?” He'll find out even if he has to sic a malfunctioning valuable-detecting robot after the boy! Then in “Patrick's Itch,” nothing and no one can scratch Patrick's itch--will his rough starfish hide ever know relief? All this plus “SpongeFunnies” by James Kochalka, “Flotsam and Jetsam” by Maris Wicks, and the secret to Sandy's “New Look”!

By Chuck Dixon, Dave DeGrand, Jacob Chabot


Gangster fish have made the Krusty Krab their hangout--and it's up to Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob to figure out a way to get rid of them! Must they resort to…Patrick the Hypnotist? Find out in "SpongeFellas!" Then in "Not So Great Expectations," take a trip to Blockville--the lamest, most decrepit theme park on the ocean floor. Surely NOBODY could enjoy a visit to…oh, wait, here comes SpongeBob. Never mind. Plus Spongey comics by James Kochalka, Brian Smith, Maris Wicks, and more!
