Lean on Me

First | Previous | 2011-03-15 | Next | Latest

Strip by: DanielBT

Nermal: Hey! Quit leaning on me.
Garfield: I am not leaning on you.
SFX: PLOP {Garfield falls over}
Nermal: See?
Garfield: The wind shifted, that's all.

The author writes:

One thing I always liked about the old Garfield comics was the lopsided background. It would invariably be at an angle in the first panel, straight in the second, then crooked again in the third. It's very rare that the backgrounds would be different in every panel. I liked to tilt my head when seeing these panels, and this strip seemed like the best example to employ it, having all of them be even. I also recoloured Garfield's lips to make them more visible.

Original strip: 1986-06-14.
