    Bongo Comics: 2012 Bongo Comics Free-For-All!/ SpongeBob Comics Freestyle Funnies
    By Groening/Hillenburg

And Sergio Aragonés joins the fun with a story from his own past of how he made his first peso as an underground and underage artist. THEN, flip over the book for two of the swimmingest SpongeBob sagas from the series' hard-to-find earliest issues.

Plus: a page of gags that go off the deep end by indie artiste James Kochalka.
