Product Description

About the Author

Jim Davis was born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, 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 19, 1978, syndicated in forty-one U.S. newspapers. Today it’s syndicated in more than 2,100 newspapers worldwide with more than 200 million readers, leading Guinness World Records to name Garfield The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World. 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.

Being a fan of Garfield, I can only say that I really enjoyed reading this book even though it is from John's point of view. As always, Garfield makes me laugh and makes me feel good. Thank you Mr. Davis.

Kindle edition is terrible Oct. 24 2012
By Jes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm glad their finally putting Garfield books on the Kindle.  However, this one was a rehash of old books & new humor with 2inch borders.  The last book was about the right boarders.  Half of the pages you can't zoom into.  my eyes hurt trying to read the small print on the page.  You also can't read this book on the cloud reader.  A total waste of money & I'm a huge Garfield fan.

No New Comics Oct. 25 2012
By Roxanne - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title and description was very deceptive. I was buying this thinking it was a new mini series focused more on Jon, but it's just a collection of various Garfield comics from over the years. There is some doodles, artwork and a few blurbs in here, but it wasn't what I was expecting at all. I'm very disappointed with this book.

.....of the dorks! It's about time that the "twit wit" dweeb finally gets his day in the sun! On a side not, I had no idea that Jon was originally supposed to be the star of the strip, not Garfield! =0)

Format: Paperback
Mostly a repeat of old Garfield strips, it still gives an insight to Jon's life in written form, detailing out where he came from & how he lives with the fat cat.
