Strip by: Henning Makholm

Garfield: INVISIBLE SPIDER!
SFX: Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap! Whap!
Jon: What do you think you're doing?!
Garfield: Didn't you not see that?

The author writes:

Here is the Garfield strip from 1994-04-23, diluted 4C. At one part in 100 million, the chance that your monitor will show even one pixel of the original strip is only slightly better than one in a thousand. However, while the image file is almost completely transparent, it still retains a "memory" of the strip, which can be detected by suitably sensitive software.

Compare with #467 ("Garfield Minus Absolutely Everything"), which is totally erased rather than merely diluted, and #293 ("i"), which was never there to begin with.
