See how it all began...
on February 27, 2003
In 1978, United Feature Syndicate gave the go ahead to Jim Davis to do a cartoon strip about a fat, lazy cat who would rather eat and sleep than do just about anything else. Now, 25 years later, this cat would still rather eat and sleep than do just about anything else. At least some things in this world never change.
Garfield has been making grown-ups and children laugh for almost 25 years. This comic strip is one of the most widely distributed comic strips in the world. And in this book, "The 1st Garfield Treasury" you can see how it all began.
The Garfield of today does not much resemble the Garfield of 1978, looks wise that is. I had forgotten how different he looked back then. But his charm, or lack of it, is still there in all of its glory.
This book takes us through the first two years of Sunday comic strips, from 6/25/78 to 7/13/80. If you grew up with Garfield as a kid, and even if you did not, the "1st Garfield Treasury" will be a wonderful look back at how it all began.
