Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“If Garfield ever lost weight, Id lose my job security.”

-Jim Davis

When the worlds most famous feline hits the three-decade milestone its time to celebrate! 30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna is a tribute to this tremendous achievement. Organized by decade, each with an introduction by Jim Davis, this lavishly illustrated volume features more than four hundred strips, including thirty of Jim Daviss all-time favorites-with informative remarks from Jim on why they made the grade. Packed with early sketches, enlightening quotes, and fun facts (did you know that the Garfield comic was originally titled Jon?), this book shows how Garfield evolved from a witty kitty to a world-renowned fat cat.

Of Jim Daviss “little hobby,” Blondie cartoonist Dean Young writes: “Every one of [these] little treasures is an exquisite menagerie of comic timing, writing, and cartoon art. Its easy to see why his strip is continually voted one of the best on our planet by readers everywhere.”

So if you appreciate the unparalleled splendors of layered pasta, need something to ward off those nap attacks, or have a healthy appetite for humor, 30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna is just the ticket. Perhaps Jim Davis puts it best: “This whole line of work is to make people happy and smile.” Garfields millions of fans couldnt agree more.

Synopsis:

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Garfield, this irresistible gift book package is sure to appeal to both collectors and casual readers alike. Full-color illustrations throughout.

About the Author

Jim Davis was born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana, and was promptly dropped on his head-which could explain his lifelong desire to be a cartoonist. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, 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 41 U.S. newspapers. Today its recognized by Guinness World Records as the worlds most widely syndicated comic strip, appearing in 2,570 newspapers and read by some 263 million readers in 111 countries around the globe.
