    I collect the books that feature the old comic

    strips. He looked so weird in the 70s. Every time I feel (a little) blue, I will pull out one of those books, read it, and just smile. Garfield is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No offense to Odie (who's awesome too, lol)

    1978 Vs 2012

    An Influence On My Own Comics

    I remember when I first got into Garfield. It was around late '97 or early '98 when I started reading some old newspaper comics. I liked the colors of the Sunday comics, and for whatever reason, Garfield caught my attention. I started cutting out comics and posting them on my...

    Love the Humour Provided

    My love of this cartoon is due to a mixture of things, probably.  My growing up with and loving cats, that I was in my teens and still pretty naive when Garfield was all the rage, and the style of exaggerated humour in the strips themselves.  When I turned to the comics...
