The death of Garfield?
An examination of a really f*cked up series of Garfield cartoons from 1989. These are 100% legit. EDIT: ok, thanks to everyone confirming the veracity of these strips.

Isn't that what every cartoonist dreams of when his popularity takes off? How to kill their creation?

I've never felt so sympathetic over a cartoon character, especially one that I don't even like. That was amazing.

Pretty nicely put together. Also I have this book, they're 100% real

They're real. But i think it has nothing to do with garfields death. Like he said "Imagination is a powerful tool" And at the end of the strip, there's a comforting scene where Garfield hugs Jon, telling him how much he is dependent on him.

Oh for f*ck's sake, Jim Davis has already said, when asked about these series of strips, that it was done for Halloween, to make it a bit more spooky and that he laughs at the people who think Garfield is actually starving to death, or dying, or is already dead. F*cking dolts.

I have an old garfield pillow case here which suggest that garfield is 30 years old this year. I had a quick look around about cat longevity, and http://www.best-cat-art.com/how-long-will-my-cat-live.html says "there are records of a few cats reaching over 30 years. These sort of ages for a cat are very much the exception however". Garfield. Exceptional?

"Garfield and his 9 lives" is probably the weirdest/most disturbing Garfield item I can think of. Look it up.

I wish I was Jim Davis, he writes the same mindless joke over and over, it gets put in the paper and he gets paid. Maybe all that weed finally got to him.

This came out a little before Halloween and he was spoofing another story of a ghostly cat wandering an abandoned house. He was just having some fun for Halloween and trying to make a point
