Strip by: JakeLeB

{We see a building called "Sun-Times", with a man standing partly outside of the front door, pointing to the right. He is looking down at Garfield, who is crying and carrying a suitcase}
Top Left Box: October 2, 1978
Garfield: WAH!
{Later, we see the man again, this time he is getting angry phone calls, revealing to us that he is a newspaper editor}
Top Left Box: Later...
Phone #1: WHERE'S GARFIELD?!
Phone #2: WE WANT GARFIELD!
{Some time has passed, and we see Garfield walking into a building, presumably "Sun-Times", as we can see a pair of legs standing to the left of the panel. Garfield is pleased, carrying his suitcase}
Top Left Box: October 16, 1978
Garfield: Thank you for having me back, Chicago!!
{Who knew there was a big Garfield demand in Chicago?}

The author writes:

So, one day I was browsing Twitter, as you do, and found this tweet. Ignoring the topic of Garfield's feet, it had a comic I never seen before, most likely about Garfield being pulled from newspapers for a bit. Seeing an opportunity, I decided to 'restore' it, so to speak, by coloring it.

You may use this in your submissions if you please, no credit needed! :)
