A New Angle

First | Previous | 2011-06-06 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Andrew Kepple

Garfield: Z
{Odie is wandering up to a sleeping Garfield}
Odie: BARK!
{Garfield shoots off to the right in a cartoony cloud of dust}
Garfield {offscreen}: N
{Jon is looking with some concern at where Garfield is now}

The author writes:

In the original comic, an opportunity for an "upside-down speech" gag is missed, because of a rotationally symmetrical "Z" being used instead of something like "SNORE" (which would also be more consistent with Odie's "BARK!"). But now, in this re-imagined version, we can see a "sideways speech" gag instead.
