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.

SpongeBob is dragged to court…by a mob of angry jellyfish! It's "Trial By Jelly" for SpongeBob and Patrick, by Vince DePorter (Scooby-Doo). Then cartoonist Israel Sanchez (Flight) puts Squidward through the ringer  in "Blue Bonnet Society." Can Squidward survive the chaos after he interrupts SpongeBob's warm-up exercises? In "The Amazing SpongeBot" by David DeGrand (Zombie Chasers) a mechanical future SpongeBob must stop the present-day Mr. SquarePants from performing a comedy routine--or else the future will be all messed up or something! Also in this issue: SpongeBob blows up big; Gary's shell gets detailed; and Patrick declares a new holiday. PLUS: SpongeFunnies by James Kochalka and a kooky coral maze by Robert Leighton (New Yorker) and Gary Hallgren (Air Pirates).

This issue is filled with SICK humor! Because SpongeBob has a bad cold. And when his friends visit, things somehow get WORSE. Joey Weiser and Gregg Schigiel reveal all in "Sick Day." And in "Trench Vanilla," readers can experience a SpongeBob adventure in widescreen--that's right, it's a 10 page comic that is ONE continuous image! Enjoy this miracle of comic book technology courtesy of Robert Leighton and Gregg Schigiel. Plus: James Kochalka's "SpongeFunnies," David Lewman and Vanessa Davis's "Squidward in Love," Joey Weiser's "Phoney Dance Party," and Maris Wicks's "Flotsam and Jetsam." And to cap it off,  Scott Roberts (PATTY-CAKE) shows us the awful things that happen when Patrick tries to think!

Sergio regales us with a survivor’s tale straight from the decks of the RMS Titanic. Then he recalls how he made his “Second Peso” as a budding professional cartoonist. Add in a mix of mazes and marginal comic strips, and you will be in for a fun-tastic time.
