In a story we could only call “Patty Thing,” Squidward is pursued by a shambling terror made of discarded Krabby Patties--featuring a krusty creature drawn by the horrifying Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing, Tyrant)! Then in “Monster Canyon,” SpongeBob must make a Krabby Patty delivery to an address from which no delivery boy has ever returned! PLUS: Sandy makes a costume; a monstrous episode of James Kochalka's “SpongeFunnies”; a scary “Flotsam and Jetsam”; and several creepy under-the-sea pinups!

In our first all-Gary issue, SpongeBob's faithful pet snail meows his way through seven slimy stories! First, in "Have a Nice Day, Gary," Gary wriggles his way through calamity, coincidence, and cucumber eye treatments! Then, in "Gary Patty," SpongeBob names a new, experimental patty after Gary–but the snail's new celebrity may have unforeseen consequences. And in "Snail Foot," SpongeBob finally gets to experience life as a mollusk. Plus more gastropod action from Jen Wang, James Kochalka, and Maris Wicks!

Squidward has moved away with no forwarding address, and SpongeBob and Patrick must scour the globe in search of their best buddy. And what better way to search for a missing friend than taking a long bus trip and yelling "Squidward" out the window nonstop? It all happens in "Farewell Squidward!" And in "Monstah Lobstah Cometh," Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy remember their first encounter with a deadly, but delicious, foe. All this plus a 4-page doodle comic, a tense shopping moment with Mrs. Puff, and the secret to Squidward's most perfect clarinet performance.
