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.

Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa63f01e0) out of 5 stars Some good comics dropped. Jan. 8 2011
By Jes - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa677cccc) out of 5 stars Meh, it was okay. Dec 31 2010
By Deric - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa677cd20) out of 5 stars another funny garfield book June 25 2010
By Kari Regier - Published on Amazon.com
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).
HASH(0xb16efea0) out of 5 stars A missed opportunity March 11 2014
By Norway Mom - Published on Amazon.com
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."
HASH(0xa6370a08) out of 5 stars The cover is nice to look at, but outside of that, it's rather disappointing. Jan. 2 2013
By Alan R. Tuckwell Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This reminds me of "ashcan" comics. Some of the book's content is mildly interesting, but much of it winds up being random doodles or joke ideas that aren't even worth a chuckle. It looks nice sitting on a coffee table, but unless you're amongst Garfield's most hardcore of fans, I'd pass this by.
