Strip by: Martin Nixon
Garfield: You don't have to play with that pathetic little ball of yarn, Nermal. I'll get my personal ball of yarn for you.
Nermal: How nice!
(The deLorean time machine flies through the air, sans flight modifications, towards the back of Nermal's head)
Nermal: Maybe Garfield likes me after all!
The author writes:
Jon: "Jesus Christ Garfield, you disintegrated Nermal!" Garfield: "Calm down Jon, I didn't disintegrate anything. The molecular structure of both Nermal and the car are completely intact!"
