Strip by: Tye

Jon: I'm so depressed it's depressing.
Jon: I think I'll go out and shoot myself.

The author writes:

Looking back at several of the older Garfield strips, it was surprising to see how much dark stuff Jim included in his comic. With Garfield out of the picture, strips such as this one ended up having a much more grim undertone. So, I thought to myself, "How can I make a depressing strip like this one ever more depressing?" With one simple addition, this was my result.

Original strip: 1983-10-19.
