Strip by: kinglasagna

{We see Jon sleeping in the dark while a pair of eyes are looking at him}
Jon: Z
{Jon's thought bubble pops and he wakes up}
Jon: Wha? Who?! Are you a monster?!
SFX: Slurp
{Something licks Jon on the face}
Jon: Odie! It's you! Sure, you can sleep with me.
{Another pair of eyes appear, with Jon frightened}
Jon: Yaaaah! Now who are you?!
{Jon flips the switch of his lamp, revealing Garfield}
SFX: Click
Jon: Garfield!
{We zoom out to reveal Jon hugging an alien, with Garfield frightened}
Jon: What are you trying to do? Scare us?

The author writes:

I loved the 1979 Garfield art style and Lyman. So I took a 1988 strip I love, and I photoshopped it to look like a strip from 1979.

Original strips: 1988-11-20, 1979-09-08.
