Mr. Burns explores alternative sources of energy for the people of Springfield by tapping into the geothermal power from a nearby volcano; however, when the new source of fuel proves unstable, the town charter demands that the town offer a human sacrifice to appease the volcano gods and restore order.

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.

It's another swimmingly spooky Halloween issue! First, the Flying Dutchman's undead crew is on the loose in Bikini Bottom--but why can't they get a good scare out of that little yellow guy? Writer Derek Drymon and legendary Mister Monster-maker Michael T. Gilbert may have the answers in THE DUTCHMAN'S CHALLENGE. And in THINGS THAT GO BURP IN THE NIGHT by David DeGrand (Garfield, Zombie Chasers), SpongeBob must confront the terror of the late shift at the Krusty Krab. Then Squidward's dream has come true--his rival Squilliam Fancyson is reduced to a miserable pauper, in a O'Henry-esque tale of late October by Jacob Lambert and Stephen DeStefano. All this plus a monster pumpkin, a costume contest, and a back cover by acclaimed children's book artist Marc Rosenthal!
