    Although I think that he might enjoy ‘Calvin’ even more.

    When you’re on the throne, there’s nothing like an Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader.

    I, for one, have never enjoyed Garfield.

    I did in the very beginning, but between me outgrowing sarcasm and the artist losing the plot in among all the merchandising, movie ops etc., it didn’t last.

    That paper looks thicker than a Sears catalogue.

    To be fair, back in 1889 “Garfield” was still pretty funny, not to mention topical and cutting-edge. But around 1915 Davis ran a lengthy “Garfield Goes to War” storyline that proved REALLY unpopular with readers (it might have helped if Garfield had fought against the Kaiser). After that, Davis decided it was safer and more lucrative to keep the strip as bland as possible.

    Enlarged (use your browser zoom to enlarge more) available from here.

    Perhaps @Joe can provide a better translation of the German painting Description, of what’s inscribed on the back of this small painting, than Google did in my here link. This image (with the detailed inset) comes from here (again Google translated).

    So far, only (click the image there and use your browser zoom to get perhaps a better quality enlargement) work by this artist to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Jim Davis (there was no Garfield before him) was born in 1945.
