    Written by Chuck Dixon and Various. Art by Derek Drymon and Various. Cover by Jacob Chabot. Roll out the red cape! The SpongeBob Comics Swimtacular celebrates the submarine superheroics of SpongeBob's idols, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, in forty-eight all-new pages! First, bear witness to a reunion of Mermaid Man's Golden Age team, the Aquatic Adventurers, in a story we could only call 'Lo, There Shall Be a Catered Event,' featuring funky flashbacks by Jerry Ordway (Superman)! Then, SpongeBob and Patrick's game of superheroes goes from silly to sillier, when they encounter the quiet-loving super-fiend known only as Mendu! Who could this green, big-nosed, tentacled villain possibly be? Next, legendary Silver Age artist Ramona Fradon (Metamorpho) returns to SpongeBob Comics to draw the never-before-seen Mermaid Man classic 'Sidekick Blues,' featuring the sinister Controlling Conch and the rarely sighted Edwardian Age Mermaid Man. All this plus a tour of the Mermalair, Plankton and Gary's brief super-careers, spoofs of classic comic book ads, and a double-page spread depicting every Bikini Bottom superhero and villain!

Henceforth, all SpongeBob Comics must be educational and literary, to boot! But as SpongeBob and friends go on their highfalutin' quest through a bunch of literary rip-offs-er, homages, the true spirit of SpongeBob sneaks its way into the narrative - in the form of Patrick and SpongeBob's new silly Squishy Dance! 48 pages, full color. Cover price $4.99.
