Join us for a SpongeBob story time with James Kochalka!
ABOUT THE BOOK: SpongeBob Comics #75, published by United Plankton Pictures
SPECIAL SPONGEFUNNIES ISSUE! James Kochalka’s off-model, chibi-like short SpongeBob strips have entertained readers since SpongeBob Comics issue 1. Now, SpongeFunnies are busting out into a full-length ultra-cute epic story—“Skate the Cake!” If you like SpongeBob, Squidward, skateboards, cakes, volcanoes, deserts, and famous movie star “Duke McGill,” then you are cool. AND you will love this issue! Also inside this issue by other cartoonists: Sandy’s chore day goes awry; a pirate club recruits SpongeBob; and Patrick bounces stuff off his belly! All this plus Ocean Facts from adventure cartoonist Maris Wicks.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: James Kochalka is the first Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont. That's kind of like being the state flower, but even better! He's the author and illustrator of several popular children's book series, including Johnny Boo and Dragon Puncher and The Glorkian Warrior. Dragon Puncher Island won an Eisner award in 2012 for "Best Publication for Early Readers", but he's also won the Harvey award and four Ignatz awards for his books for adults. In addition to drawing comics he plays in a rock band called James Kochalka Superstar and designs video games (Glorkian Warrior and its prequel Glorkbot's Mini-Adventure). Kochalka lives in Burlington, VT with his wife and two sons.
