United Plankton Pictures is taking an extended shore leave, so #85 will be our last for a while. For now we present our 7th annual October assemblage of spooky submerged stories! In “Creature from Goo Lagoon,” Graham Annable (Grickle, Boxtrolls, Puzzle Agent) writes and draws the tale of a lonely monster…who makes the mistake of kidnapping Patrick to keep him company! Then, in “Dutchman Went Down to Bikini Bottom,” Derek Drymon (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants Movie) and Jacob Chabot (Deadpool Team-Up, Mighty Skullboy Army) team to show how even selling his soul can’t help Squidward’s clarinet playing. And Bob Flynn (Bravest Warriors) brings vampires to Bikini Bottom. All this plus facts about the deepest depths of the sea—by Maris Wicks (The Human Body Show) and SpongeFunnies by James Kochalka (Glorkian Warrior).

SpongeBob is having fun with his new hobby—tinkering with robots that do simple tasks like…flipping patties! Mr. Krabs seizes on the opportunity to robotize the entire Krusty Krab! But when the mechanical replacements turn on Krabs, SpongeBob must don the tight-fitting tunic of SPONGEBOB: ROBOTFIGHTERPANTS! Then in “Secret Identities,” SpongeBob finds out that Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy don’t have secret identities! SpongeBob and Patrick help the aged heroes rectify this blatant disregard for superhero tropes by…becoming, themselves, the secret identities of their favorite heroes?! Also, in this issue: a self-driving boat may be the key to SpongeBob finally getting his boating license! Plus: “SpongeFunnies” by James Kochalka and ocean facts from Maris Wicks!

“Classics Ahoy!” Why are SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs starring in a Bikini Bottom mashup of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Treasure Island, Moby-Dick, and more maritime masterpieces? It’s simple: The dread Censor Ship has ordered SpongeBob Comics’ creative crew, the United Plankton pirates, to clean up their act—OR WALK THE PLANK! Henceforth, all SpongeBob Comics must be educational and literary, to boot! But as SpongeBob and friends go on their highfalutin’ quest through a bunch of literary rip-offs—er, homages, the true spirit of SpongeBob sneaks its way into the narrative—in the form of Patrick and SpongeBob’s new silly Squishy Dance! Nautical nonsense and snooty literature fight for control of the comic…and for the very lives of the United Plankton crew! And after the epic: 4-pinups by R. Sikoryak (The Unquotable Trump!) featuring SpongeBob and friends as the stars of Shakespeare’s greatest plays!

Squidward is all set to find inner peace with a famous spiritual yoga master—until he’s joined by guru-curious SpongeBob and Patrick! An inner journey turns into an ordeal of psychic stupidity. See an infinity of SpongeBobs! Witness the nothingness within Patrick! Can Squidward possibly find oneness while surrounded by dumbness? You’ll see in “You’re Not My Swami!” Then in “Pennies for Patties,” Mr. Krabs’ quest for a  super-rare penny turns the Krusty Krab into a giant bin of copper coinage! But what if one of his employees finds the rare penny first? All this plus “SpongeFunnies” by James Kochalka and ocean facts from Maris Wicks!

The secret formula is just PART of what makes a Krabby Patty delicious—there is also…THE METHOD, SpongeBob’s crucial food prep procedure…and Squidward MUST LEARN IT! But can he bear to study at the (cute) feet of a spongy sensei who drives him bonkers? Find out in “Method Madness”! Then in “Can’t Get Much Commoner,” King Neptune decides, perhaps unwisely, to learn about the simple pleasures of mortals by spending a day with two mortal simpletons—SpongeBob and Patrick. Also: Patrick decides to live the rest of his life in a kelp maze, and Mr. Krabs wants to win a place in the Underwater Book of Records. All this plus ocean facts by Maris Wicks and “SpongeFunnies” by James Kochalka!
