I have something of a confession to make: I am a fan of Garfield. And to celebrate his 34th birthday today, I’m doing a little something different.
This presents an interesting dilemma for me.
Do I correct the Wiki, and others who believe this to mean the end of Garfield, in the name of truth and fact?
Or is this one of those times where perhaps people are getting more out of the fabrication, and should just be left alone to grow into its own sort of urban legend?
I know a lot of people are going to be down on this, but you know what? Fuck that. Probably be the same people who never thought Garfield was worth anything outside of Saturday mornings, anyway.
Me? Hell, they could pretty much end the strip with this, and I think I could be happy.
…not that I want them to, of course, just saying they could.
Oh yeah, and I guess this means I was right.
Holiest of Hells, they’re doing things with Garfield now that I haven’t seen in a LONG time…
A story arc. With PERSPECTIVE shots.
Make a note in your calendars, folks, it all started here:
From their front page:
“Garfield’s Life Changes Forever!
Read the Garfield comic strip and follow the unbelievable chain of events that unfold between now and July 28th!
Read Jon Arbuckle’s Daily Horoscope every day for hints.
“I’m doomed!” says Garfield…”
I hope this means good things in the future for Garfield…
All the happy at once!
I do have a prediction for what’s going to happen, though.
I think Jon and Liz are going to get together, reflecting the status they seem to share in the movies. Similar to how other comics(usually comic books) adopt things from other media for the original medium. Spider-man gaining organic webshooters after the movies, for a recent example.
