Synopsis

Synopsis

Sunday Is a Fun Day!
 
“Every Sunday morning, after doing the farm chores, Dad, Mom, Doc (yes, he’s real), and I would settle in with the Sunday paper for at least a half hour of chuckling, snorting, and laughing out loud.”—Jim Davis
 
Settle in with thirty-five years of the best Garfield Sunday funnies, handpicked and annotated by celebrated Garfield cartoonist Jim Davis. This special anniversary collection presents the comics in their full glory (complete with title and drop panels), along with an assortment of original sketches and never-before-seen rejected strips. It’s Garfield the fat cat in his Sunday finest!

Jim Davis was born on July 28th, 1945 in Marion, IN. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, IN 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 19th, 1978, syndicated in 41 US newspapers. Today it's syndicated in more than 2,500 newspapers worldwide with 263 million readers. Recently, Guinness World Records‘, named Garfield "The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World."

Jim Davis has had many successes with Garfield including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning.
