Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
When the world's most famous feline hits the three-decade milestone it's time to celebrate! 30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna is a tribute to this tremendous achievement. Organized by decade, each with an introduction by Jim Davis, this lavishly illustrated volume features more than four hundred strips, including thirty of Jim Davis's all-time favorites-with informative remarks from Jim on why they made the grade. Packed with early sketches, enlightening quotes, and fun facts (did you know that the Garfield comic was originally titled Jon?), this book shows how Garfield evolved from a witty kitty to a world-renowned fat cat.Of Jim Davis's "little hobby," Blondie cartoonist Dean Young writes- "Every one of these little treasures is an exquisite menagerie of comic timing, writing, and cartoon art. It's easy to see why his strip is continually voted one of the best on our planet by readers everywhere."So if you appreciate the unparalleled splendors of layered pasta, need something to ward off those nap attacks, or have a healthy appetite for humor, 30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna is just the ticket. Perhaps Jim Davis puts it best- "This whole line of work is to make people happy and smile." Garfield's millions of fans couldn't agree more.
