Rainier Wolfcastle applies some method acting to his newest film role and follows Bart around school to get inside the mind of child, but it doesn’t take long  for the action hero to become fascinated with another  subject…Nelson Muntz. Plus, add in a little Crazy Cat Lady.

Homer accidentally invents the most powerful vacuum cleaner on Earth and teams up with door-to-door salesman Gil Gunderson to peddle his wares. Meanwhile, when Bart and his pals get in trouble and are assigned to help out Groundskeeper Willie, the school handyman has enough extra time on his hands to earn his GED and teacher’s credential. In no time, he becomes Springfield Elementary’s most sought after substitute teacher. With so much sanitizing getting done, this is, hands down, the cleanest comic you’ll read all year!

In our ocean-shaking volcano issue, witness the explosive birth of…Patrick's new house?! It happens in "Guest to Pest" by Scott Roberts. In "Magma Morons," SpongeBob explores a volcanic island with a secret–courtesy of Kaz, Vince DePorter, and a big photo spread of a “real” volcano!  Plus, in "Formula None," SpongeBob goes on strike when Mr. Krabs replaces the Krabby Patty ingredients with artificial filler!  Also, facts about undersea vents by Maris Wicks (Batman '66, Primates) and Dave DeGrand's tale of the weirdest-shaped toe blister in the history of Bikini Bottom!

You Only Die Once! Springfield’s #1 box office draw finally gets top billing on the Simpsons One-Shot Wonders marquee! Many of you may know him as the muscle-bound strongman turned action star Rainier Wolfcastle, but the world (as if that wasn’t enough) knows him simply by one name…McBain! Never Say One-Shot Again!



By Tom Gammill, Alice Gammill, Phil Ortiz, Mike DeCarlo

 

Mr. Burns is all-aglow with a newfound popularity when his “My Size Burnsie” doll becomes the most sought after toy in Springfield! And the townsfolks are also all-aglow when they discover that their new luminescent figurines just happen to be…radioactive!



By David Lewman, David DeGrand, Gregg Schigiel

 

A sneaky cartoonist (i.e., a normal cartoonist) turns SpongeBob and Patrick into the stars of a new hit comic strip–"PlungeBob and Splatrick"– and the briny buddies can't handle the fame! Then, in "Ship Wrecked," Mrs. Puff's vacation cruise is severely compromised by a certain stowaway fry cook. Plus: Kaz (Underworld) and Gary Leib (Idiotland) tell the tale of the customer who hates SpongeBob; Maris Wicks (Primates) reveals scientific secrets of the puffer fish; and Scott Roberts (Patty Cake) draws a very Pogo-esque SpongeBob pin-up!
