After staying up past their bedtimes, SpongeBob and Patrick vow to go for it and stay up ALL NIGHT. Their mission, to become "Kings of Night"--and the nocturnal antics that ensue are worth donning those night-vision goggles you've been sitting on. Then, Silver Age legend Ramona Fradon (Plastic Man, Metamorpho) joins with Batman scribe Chuck Dixon to weave a tale of Mermaid Man's run in with true love, in a story we could only call "The Lovely Lure of Lady Mackeral." Also in this issue: SpongeBob tries out different shapes to improve business at the Krusty Krabb, and poker-playing Pirates try out a new  deck of SpongeBob-themed cards. All this plus "SpongeFunnies" by James Kochalka (Dragon Puncher), tidal trivia by Maris Wicks (Primates), and a back cover by Eleanor Davis (The Secret Science Alliance)!



In honor of our favorite holiday and celebrating the release of Bart Simpson’s Manual of Mischief (available now at all fine book stores), here’s a peek at the Prankster’s Crest!

This issue: United Plankton finally cashes in on the trend that's sweeping comics--science stories starring sea-dwelling squirrels. That's right, it's a whole issue starring Sandy Cheeks, SpongeBob's Texas twangin' rodent pal, who's an athlete and a lady scientist t'boot! See Sandy save Bikini Bottom from the horror of the gargantuan Aqua Chimp! Gasp as she goes paw-to-tentacle against Plankton in an invention showdown! Scratch your head as you try to comprehend what her oddest invention has done to SpongeBob's holes! And quake in fear as she discovers the source of that awful noise coming from deep within an unexplored trench! All this plus ocean facts about squirrels (yup!), Patrick's dental-care invention, and a Sandy-themed Rube Goldberg tribute with art by R. Sikoryak (Masterpiece Comics).

In the remote wastes of the northern waters, something monstrous sits encased in ice, waiting to be thawed out…by two of silliest nincompoops in the seven seas. SpongeBob and Patrick track a wayward Mr. Krabs to the frozen ruins of an ancient civilization and must deal with the enraged creature that once ruled it! In the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft, Carl Barks, Roy Crane, and Snow Dogs comes a full-length SpongeBob arctic adventure, "The Curse of King Krabbe!" Also: Squidward's new career, comics-loving pirates stuck in pack-ice, frigid facts about arctic ocean-life, and more!

More fantastic fun from Sergio Aragonés this month as the maestro tells the troubling tale of a scavenging search party who come across the wreckage of a plane that holds some dark secrets of its own. Then learn about Sergio’s gargantuan gift to his dear friend and publisher of MAD Magazine, William Gaines. And, of course, you can expect more delightful puzzles and pantomimes from the most beloved cartoonist in the world.
