Laff & Learn With Garfield
-Dogs are allowed in the waiting room without supervision, but cats must attend vet appointments with a legal guardian.
-Three Purple Lumps has stepped up their advertising campaign to the back cover of that famous red-bordered magazine. The one that starts with a W.
-The "trip to the vet" story has been dragged out for a week and a half without even making it into Liz's office yet. Good chance this plot could last an entire month, depending on how many shots Garfield needs. Or if he gets a skin disease from that dog.
-The amateur Garfield reader may think this could've been a one-panel cartoon, since all the dialog and action is packed into the final frame, and the rest of the strip is the characters sitting silent and motionless. I say that Garfield is about the stultifying boredom, and subcutaneous boiling frustration of our lives, and you can only feel that with the rhythm of the first two panels. There's a reason this isn't Heathcliff.
