Sixth Roots of Garfield

First | Previous | 2009-08-18 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Tom Willis

{Six copies of the same strip, arranged in a circle, with the hue shifted by 60° for each successive strip.}
Garfield: I have this nagging feeling I'm forgetting something.
SFX: WHUMP! {Odie falls on Garfield}
Garfield: Oh yes, I forgot I kicked Odie into next week, last week.

The author writes:

One of the nice things about the nth roots of unity is that they lie equally spaced around a circle in the complex plane. Hue is really a point on a circle, and n=6 because it looks pretty.

Original strip: 1984-07-02.
