About the Author

Jim Davis was born on July 28th, 1945 in Marion, IN. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, IN where he distinguished himself by earning one of the lowest cumulative grade point averages in the history of the university. (Incidentally, a fellow classmate named David Letterman earned the other). The Garfield strip was born on June 19th, 1978, syndicated in 41 US newspapers. Today it's syndicated in more than 2,500 newspapers worldwide with 263 million readers. Recently, Guinness World Records‘, named Garfield "The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World."

Jim Davis has had many successes with Garfield including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have stayed in the trash bin Dec 6 2010
Upon reading this book, you have to wonder if common sense temporarily deserted Jim Davis when he decided to send these 'rescued rejects' for publication. The artwork is crude at best, little more than rough sketches scribbled on random bits of paper. Most of the sketches aren't even funny, and quite a few of them are decidedly more mature than the Garfield strips published in Davis's best-selling books (Garfield Sits Around the House, etc.)

Even as a Garfield fan, I can't find enjoyment in this book. These sketches are rejects that should NOT have been rescued.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good comics dropped. Jan. 8 2011
By Jes - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of comics that were dropped for some reason. Some of them are quite good. Like all the Apple jokes. And Apple needs to laugh at itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, it was okay. Dec 31 2010
By Deric - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was an okay book. Not super entertaining. Its cool to see the rejected idea and covers but its more of a collectors item than a read because there probably are only 10 strips and a bunch of cover arts. There have definitely been more entertaining comics and comic add ons produced by Jim davis.
Cool to see rejects.
Barely any comics
Mediocre entertainment value.

4.0 out of 5 stars another funny garfield book June 25 2010
By Kari Regier - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this was pretty good! but the fact that they are rejects make them a little less funny. some of my favorite parts were the rejected covers throughout and the garfeild minus... page (pix of stuff like garfield minus death perception and garfield minus donuts).
3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity March 11 2014
By Norway Mom - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this book, because we paged through it rather quickly. Every few pages there were something my family really liked and found funny, but I felt the author missed a golden opportunity to provide insight into the creative process (which he did to some extent in "30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna: The Life & Times of a Fat, Furry Legend."
