SPECIAL: Inside Squish! The SUPER AMOEBA comic book covers

Hi gang! I'm finishing up the eighth volume in the SQUISH series—SQUISH: POD VS. POD—and I thought I would share something special with you.

One of the central things about the SQUISH books is that, in each volume, Squish (our intrepid amoeba protagonist) is busy reading an issue of his favorite comic book series, The Adventures of Super Amoeba. The action in Squish's life is interrupted/paralleled by glimpses into the action of the comic book. And, in each volume, Squish reads a different issue of Super Amoeba.

But did you realize that each issue of The Adventures of Super Amoeba also has its own cover?

 

The eagle-eyed among you may have spotted Squish holding the comics, and been able to make out the teeny-tiny scenes on the covers. But today, for your enjoyment, I present all seven Super Amoeba covers, at full size!

 
from #1—SQUISH: SUPER AMOEBA


 
from #2—SQUISH: BRAVE NEW POND


from #3—SQUISH: THE POWER OF THE PARASITE


 
from #4—SQUISH: CAPTAIN DISASTER


 
from #5—SQUISH: GAME ON!


 
from #6—SQUISH: FEAR THE AMOEBA


 
from #7—SQUISH: DEADLY DISEASE OF DOOM


 ... and what's the cover for the upcoming #8—SQUISH: POD VS. POD? Well ... you'll just have to wait and see! (Truthfully, I have to go draw it RIGHT NOW.) 

Keep reading!
