Yet Another All Star #3 Parody Cover...

This time, we can thank the Spongebob Squarepants Annual #1 for the Year of Our Lord 2013 aka the Spongebob Annual-Size Super-Giant Swimtacular (whew!) for remembering it's golden age roots!
The story titled, "Lo, There Shall Be a Catered Affair!" concerns Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy reuniting with their old teammates, the Aquatic Adventurers.
Stan Lee would be proud of a title like that!
The story is very nice, the art is great and one of my favorite artists Jerry Ordway handles the flashback sequences. (75th Reunion?  How old ARE these guys?)
Whether you are a fan of Spongebob or not, the opportunity to see the Green Harpoon is hardly something any self-respecting fan of the silver age of comics can pass up!  All this comics history goodness takes place in the first story alone!  
Spongebob is impressed with GH's still-in-shape gluts.
Even the cover is a great homage to a time gone by and is worth getting if only for that.  Good, clean stories you can sit and read with your kids (and you should, actually).
