It's a Simpsons Comics send off! Join Bongo for the final issue of Simpsons Comics in a series finale that's been 25 years in the making! When Lisa brings home a lovable new pet from All Creatures Great and Small and Cheap, it seems like the perfect gift. But this new addition to the family turns out to be much more than anyone could have expected, and soon Springfield itself is in danger. Only one person can save the town from total disaster, but they're too busy taking a nap! It's a tale of twists, turns, irradiated missteps, and surprise cameos that will have your head spinning, bosom heaving, and wallet screaming to be emptied! A heartfelt series farewell from your pals at Bongo. We hate to say goodbye, so let's just leave it at "Smell ya later!"

United Plankton Pictures is taking an extended break, so issue #85 will be our last for a while. For now we present our 7th annual October assemblage of spooky submerged stories! In "Creature from Goo Lagoon," Graham Annable (Grickle, Boxtrolls, Puzzle Agent) writes and draws the tale of a lonely monster…who makes the mistake of kidnapping Patrick to keep him company! Then, in "Dutchman Went Down to Bikini Bottom," Derek Drymon and Jacob Chabot team to show how even selling his soul can't help Squidward's clarinet playing. And Bob Flynn brings vampires to Bikini Bottom. All this plus facts about the deepest depths of the sea-by Maris Wicks and SpongeFunnies by James Kochalka.
