Shifting Mid-Point 2

First | Previous | 2014-01-17 | Next | Latest

Strip by: NES Boy

Jon: Hi, there... I'm Jon Arbuckle. I'm a cartoonist, and this is my cat, Garfield.
Garfield: {off-screen} Yes, we have plenty of food.
Garfield: Shortly before discovering the lawsuit!

The author writes:

This is a sequel to #313 by Wes White. It has been a few years since we last checked on the mid-point of the strip's run, so here it is.

As of the time this has been submitted (2013-09-10), there have been 12,868 Garfield strips produced so far. And that number will continue to grow in the foreseeable future...

Original strips: 1978-06-19 (#1), 1996-01-29 (#6434), 2013-09-10 (#12868).

As a bonus, I've determined the mid-point of Garfield's companion comic, U.S. Acres, which only had 1,144 strips in comparison. And since that strip has already reached its end, its own mid-point can no longer shift.

U.S. Acres mid-point strip

Original U.S. Acres strips: 1986-03-03 (#1), 1987-09-25 (#572), 1989-05-07 (#1144).
