Strip by: monterrang

{Garfield wanders in a dark suburb}
Narration: This a story about high hopes dashed in the big city...
{Garfield comes to an "Acne Wareh" armored door}
Narration: It's not a pretty story, but... I'm not a pretty cat...
{Garfield opens it}
Narration: It was a dreary night in the warehouse district. I knew what I had to do...
Narration: I had to open that door...
Narration: No matter what...
Narration: And then it happened...
Garfield: GASP!
{black panel}
{Garfield catches Jon doing a crime of not sharing a pizza with his cat}
Garfield: YOU TWO-TIMER! THAT WAS THE PIZZA BOY!
Jon {getting caught by Garfield while eating the pizza he wasn't sharing}: I WAS SAVING HALF OF IT FOR YOU, HONEST, GARFIELD!
Kid number 1 {watching Jon getting a fate worse than the death penalty} {yea Garfield is that fat}: Weird
Kid number 2 {watching Jon getting a fate worse than the death penalty}: Guess it's true what they say about a cat scorned

The author writes:

Thought this Sunday comic (the 1989 one) could have been a cool meme and it was a shame it was never made into a SRoMG.

Because the ending is in 2 panels I had to delete the panel with the shadow of Garfield. It was hell to reorganize the strip to look authentic; even had to put a black panel to hide the emptiness due to the gasp panel being too short!

Anyway, happy 2019 everyone! (Even tho I bet this will be posted somewhere around June or smtg...)
