Garfield Plus Time - Value Added: A Loyal Pet

First | Previous | 2016-01-29 | Next | Latest

Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Garfield and Jon are sitting at a table.}
Jon: I'm a lonely guy, Garfield.
{Garfield glances at the fourth wall.}
Jon: Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely...
{a sign reads "time passes"}
{Jon is sitting at a table. Garfield has died and become a skeleton. The house has fallen into disrepair, and a sign in the background reads "CONDEMNED".}
Jon: Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely...

As soon as I saw #2341, this strip popped into mind. I had thought it'd be a simple job just to paste in Garfield's skeleton without touching anything else, but that proved to be impossible as he covered most of the "condemned" sign. So I had to move the sign above his head, which meant I had to shorten the width of Jon's speech bubble, which meant that the extra "lonelys" above the strip had to go as well. Anyway, about half an hour of working in MS Paint came up with this, and I'm quite proud of how it turned out; it doesn't look as shoddy as some of my picture edits have (and no doubt will).
