The Sunday Funnies-

Post by Vandal on 10/11/2009, 9:24 pm

Which ones do you follow?

I really admire Mutts and Peanuts.

Lots of the comic strips happen to involve animals which I find a little strange...

I haven't really been a fan of Garfield since it was revealed he was actually abandoned and starving to death and that the rest of the comic strip from that point on was just his imagination coming up with a better life for himself as he died. That kinda messed with my head when I was a kid and has stopped any enjoyment of the strip from that point on.



I've always liked Dilbert though. And Sinfest, but that's a webcomic that COULD be syndicated if not for the fact it uses religion.

Holy crap... Where was this? Was it that one story where Garfield was in his house all alone, and that he kept seeing visions of Jon and Odie? Later on he had to use his imagination..?

Yeah, that's the one. The "You're more alone than you think Garfield" series of strips. It's creepy as hell, and I loved it but now I can't really enjoy the series because Garfield's all alone.

The only info on it now that I can readily find is from the Onion AV Club (Garfield is #12)

To Quote the write up

"Of course, some people claim that Garfield himself died back in the late 1980s, when the strip ran an eerie, inexplicable weeklong storyline in which Garfield wakes up to the realization that his home is an abandoned, disintegrating part of a barren landscape. Running from room to room in a panic, he realizes he's alone. (Weird inset narration panel: "You have no idea how alone you are, Garfield.") Briefly, he encounters Jon and Odie, and reaches to accept the food Jon offers, but the entire thing turns out to be a mirage. The weird narration continues, over creepy images of a sweaty, squinting eye and a screaming Garfield: "Locked fast within a time when he no longer exists, Garfield grapples with his greatest fear… loneliness. He has only one weapon… denial." Whereupon Jon and Odie reappear, and the storyline abruptly ends with some blather about the power of imagination. Some fans have suggested that this all means Garfield is either dead, or dying of hunger in an abandoned house, and that the rest of the strip is his fevered attempt to imagine a better life for himself. Doesn't that make the strip's saccharine repetitions a lot more interesting?"

Damn, when I read that I thought it was creepy, but then I didn't think much of it... now you say that's his death... it does make every comic... interesting.
