Garfield Minus Garfield Not Getting Sued Into Oblivion

Great news about Garfield Minus Garfield.

The full-color book format will give readers the experience of having both the original and doctored Garfield strips together on the same page for comparison. Dublin, Ireland-based Garfield Minus Garfield creator Dan Walsh will provide the foreword to the book.

Seems like most publishers would have sued this guy, but Jim Davis, Garfield’s creator, apparently loves the comic.

“I think it’s an inspired thing to do,” Davis said. “I want to thank Dan for enabling me to see another side of Garfield. Some of the strips he chose were slappers: ‘Oh, I could have left that out.’ It would have been funnier.”
