Garfield was one of my favorite comic strips growing up. It was one of the first that I started reading the collected books of rather than just the single strip in the newspaper every day. Between the comic strip, the cartoon and the merchandise Garfield was huge when I was a kid, and I loved it. Reading it now, the strip is not very funny. The cartoon isn’t that good either. But it is all still really enjoyable. It’s kind of like the comfort food of the comic world.
