Strip by: Billy Hicks

{Garfield, wearing a birthday hat, appears to blow out something - possibly candles on a birthday cake - off-screen}
[SFX]: Wooooosh
{Garfield stares into the distance}
{Exterior of the abandoned house where Jon and Odie left Garfield years ago}

The author writes:

Six years have passed since reality revealed its ugly self to Garfield on that life-changing Halloween week. Reaching the age of 17, cold, lonely, and starving, he clings on to the last few, faded memories he has of his long-gone owner, blowing out imaginary candles on a birthday cake that will never exist.
