The penultimate issue of Bob’s Burgers is out this week from Dynamite Entertainment. Bob’s Burgers #4 contains five parts each covering a family member. The cover by Steve Umbleby portrays the family members in a traditional stained-glass manner.
First up, is Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction presenting Franken-Butt. Tina plays the role of Dr. Frankenstein here as she creates the greatest butt ever seen, which just so happens to be on Jimmy Jr. The butt monster terrorizes their town until an angry mob confronts it. The upside is this story actually has a happily ever after ending, with one of the best lines uttered by Teddy, “Down with the butt monster!”. Louise’s Unsolved Mysteries and Curious Curiosities continues in Louise Is Invisible. Louise plays mad scientist in science class where she becomes invisible. She relishes in her new powers until she realizes her family doesn’t care that she’s invisible. Surprisingly, the best part of this section are the ancillary characters such as Andy and Ollie and not Louise herself. Gene’s latest musical is Chupacabra-Cadabra. The kids go searching for a chupacabra who’s been attacking livestock, yet only wants to be a children’s magician. Chupacabra-Cadabra is a heartwarming musical about achieving your dreams.
Bob’s Burger of the Day Ideas now is themed around heartwarming 80s movies with an emphasis on John Hughes films including Sixteen Canned Dills Burger and Fennel Bueller’s Date Sauce Burger. Linda’s letter is to the president of Super Sounds Records looking for a record deal for her album, “Appetite for Lin-struction.” She includes a mockup of her album cover and I’m all for her cover of Lady by Styx.
With only one issue left, Bob’s Burgers is still going strong!
