Strip by: enigmatime

Garfield: Brr, there's a chill in here this morning.
Garfield: What an eerie sensation...
Garfield: This doesn't feel like my home.
Garfield: Jon? Odie?
Garfield: Anybody home?
Garfield: I'm alone.
Narrator: YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW ALONE YOU ARE, GARFIELD.
Garfield: Steady, Garfield. There must be a good reason why the house is empty.
Garfield: Jon must be at the grocery.
Garfield: My home as been abandoned. No one has lived here for years!
Garfield: But, that means... I haven't lived here for years!
Garfield: What's that?!
Garfield: Jon! Odie! You're home!
Jon: Hello, Garfield. Have some food.
Narrator: Locked fast within a time when he no longer exists, Garfield
grapples with his greatest fear... Loneliness.
Narrator: After years of taking life for granted, Garfield is shaken by a horrifying vision of the inevitable process called "Time". He only has one weapon...
Narrator: Denial.
Garfield: I DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE!
Jon: Want some breakfast, Garfield?
Garfield: Who needs IT? I need YOU!
Narrator: An imagination is a powerful tool. It can tint memories of the past, shade perceptions of the present, or paint a future so vivid that it can entice... or terrify, all depending upon how we conduct ourselves today...

I liked some of the colourised panels as well as some of the black and white panels, so I put the best of the bunch together.
