Go, Cat, Go!
Garfield shifts the laughs into overdrive in this uproarious collections of comics. Whether he’s booting Nermal through the front door or battling Mrs. Feeny’s lawn gnome, the fat cat keeps the mischief and mayhem coming fast and furious. Let the wild ride begin!
Like every great lasagna, Garfield was born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant on a winter's night in 1978, while outside snow fell like grated Parmesan cheese. He weighed five pounds, six ounces at birth--that's big for a kitten!--and right from the start showed a passion for Italian food. The restaurant owner, forced to choose between Garfield and closing his doors for lack of pasta, sold Garfield to a pet store. Garfield thought he was a goner until Jon Arbuckle walked in the door.
The rest is history.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Even if you’ve never read the original His 9 Lives stories or watched the 1988 animated special, you’ll enjoy these unique interpretations by an all-star cast of cartoonists, including Andy Hirsch, Yehudi Mercado, Roger Langridge, Frazer Irving, and Genevieve FT, as they depict Garfield through the ages, from prehistoric times, to the reaches of outer space.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: "Garfield: His 9 Lives, Part 1." The journey begins with "Cave Cat," as David DeGrand (Spongebob Comics) takes us back to Garfield’s first life, during the earliest days of life on Earth! Then, Kari Smith (Plume) illustrates "King Cat," as we see how Garfield got down in Ancient Egypt.
He sleeps late and wakes up grouchy. He hates joggers, beats up dogs, and shreds his owner. He's cynical, witty, urbane, and sometimes downright mean. But best of all, he's back, better than ever, to delight cat-lovers and cat-haters alike.
Like a boss!
Head honcho Garfield takes charge in this riotous collection of comics. The fat cat is up to his usual funny business—pestering Jon, punting Odie, and pounding down pasta—and it’s a true labor of love!
