You Think You Get It. YOU DONT YOU DONT YOU DONT!!!!!!!

The baffling tweets of Jaden Smith make a surprising amount of sense when repurposed into Garfield comics.

In present day, Garfield and Jon have oval shaped eyes, but when drawing this poster I wanted the look from the Garfield of the early 80's, when E.T. was made.

Garfield hates the troops

A comic strip has caused a political uproar by making a bold, controversial statement on Veteran's Day, considered by some to be an insult to our nation's fighting men and women. The strip that has spit on the work of our country's bravest veterans is, as you would expect, that anti-American bastion of subversive vitriolic societal commentary, Garfield.

What was the deal with Wade's innertube? Conjoined twin?

Jim Davis' other strip was U.S. Acres, with Orson the Pig, Roy the Rooster, chick and egg Booker and Sheldon, sheep Bo and Lanolyn, and... a dog named Cody and a cat named Blue? Everyone who grew up from that time remembers the long-running Saturday morning show, but no one remembers the strip, which ended a couple of years before the cartoon did and evolved on a different track. Platypus Comix brings us highlights from the strip's surprisingly good, yet neglected, newspaper run.

Garfield without Garfield

"I hypothesize that if you remove all the text of Garfield's speech, or thoughts, or whatever that is, that it becomes an oddly surrealist comic."

Sleeeeeepy

I hate mondays. I love lasagna. I like naps. I hate Odie. I bet anyone of you people is funnier than Jim Davis' Garfield. Here's your chance.

The business model of the funny pages

When I was in college in the early 90s (B.W. -- before web), I used to subscribe to the daily newspaper just to get my comics fix every morning (back when Bill Waterson, Gary Larson, and Berkeley Breathed were king). Then the web came along and I had to suffer through the only (unfunny) cartoonist to embrace the web. But not anymore. With stuff like Comics-via-RSS and Comictastic I can fire up an app and start laughing every morning. I doubt I ever buy a newspaper again for the funny pages, and on top of that, these even let me avoid the lame ones I don't care about.

Gafield Gets Old

Garfield turns 25 this week. 25 years of comic strips, none of which were even remotely funny. Why do the great comics, like this or this or even this, disappear from our newspapers, while drivel like Garfield thrives? Some people even love Garfield. The rest of us just want to see him burn.
