MARITIME MYTH ISSUE!  Squidward is determined to educate those morons SpongeBob and Patrick about the glories of classic myths and legends. What could go wrong? It's not like evil spirits in the Bikini Bottom Museum of (Not Actually) History could possess Patrick and make him take on qualities of destructive deities from world mythology--right? Read "Squidward's Mythological Madness" to find out how non-rhetorical that question is! Also: see SpongeBob take in an exile from King Neptune's court! Learn about sea monsters of fact AND fable! And thrill to a battle of the beards as King Neptune takes on the Flying Dutchman! All wrapped up in a cover by George O'Connor, cartoonist of the Olympians series

Mr. Krabs brings submerged supernatural doom down upon the Krusty Krab when he tries to squeeze extra pennies out of a seemingly poor old harmless SEA WITCH! But why does her terrible spell affect everyone but Patrick? Find out in "The Krusty Curse!" Then, in "The House on Jellyfish Fields," cartoonist Graham Annable (Grickle, Box Trolls, Coraline) writes and draws an eerie wordless tale of SpongeBob on the run from the spooky denizens of a mysterious mansion. Plus: a double page cutaway view of a very haunted (and very familiar) pineapple house by Bob Flynn (Bravest Warriors) and Jim Campbell (Over the Garden Wall). All this plus a feature on "real" ghost ships from folklore and “SpongeFunnies” by James Kochalka!

During a quiet shift at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob serves a perfect Krabby Patty to super-famous action movie star Randy Albacore--but no one will believe SpongeBob's tale of his brush with fame! Branded a liar, is there anything SpongeBob can do to rescue his reputation…and to keep his square pants from catching fire? Then Sandy has to prepare her dome for the imminent arrival of her fussy Aunt Hazel from Texas…but a broken diving suit, an angry mob, along with the "helpful" SpongeBob and Patrick, mean that Sandy will have to do some quick inventing to save the day! Also: bank robbery in Bikini Bottom, a substitute Boating School teacher, and the legend of giant fry cook Paul Spatula!

Mr. Krabs has run out of the salty salt he applies to Krabby Patties (for maximum beverage sales)! He and SpongeBob must venture to Bitter Flats, the driest part of the sea, for a new shaker full, but a Grizzly Sea Bear, a treacherous mine, and a mysterious stranger all stand in Krusty commerce's way--in a story Chuck Dixon had to call "Dry Noon!" Also: Can Sandy and SpongeBob tame the majestic wild sea horse known as…Sprinkles? Plus: SpongeFunnies, ocean facts, Squidward's musical nightmare, and something called a Nudibranch Ranch!

Patrick and Larry the Lobster are the "Crusoem Twosome" in a 23-page SpongeBob epic with only a little bit of SpongeBob! When Patrick's allergies cause him and Larry to be marooned far from Bikini Bottom, it's all Larry can do to keep his buff composure and rock-hard cool! Will sea monsters, tidal waves, and a distressing lack of free weights prove deadlier than…being stuck 24-7 with Patrick? PLUS: SpongeBob catches a magic jellyfish; Gary loses his bowl, a new “SpongeFunnies” from James Kochalka; and more ocean facts from Maris Wicks!

United Plankton's annual Swimtacular is a saturated celebration of super heroics! In “SpongeBob BabysitterPants” Mermaid Man is turned into a mewling infant in a Mermalair mishap. And guess who babysits him? Then comics legend Neal Adams depicts a new more relevant, more groovy Mermaid Man in a story we didn't have to call “The Green Harpoon's Challenge!” Also: advertisements for next year's Saturday morning cartoon cause a crisis in SpongeBob's life, Pearl has a comic convention at the Krusty Krab, and Patrick becomes the new embarrassingly clad hero Speed o' Lightning!
