For those of you unfamiliar with my oeuvre (hey, look, Ma, I spelled it right!), I’m one of the contributors to Square Root of Minus Garfield, the open source Garfield mashup webcomic from the Irregular Webcomic guy among others.
Until now, all my Square Roots involved crossovers with other comics (because, shockingly, nobody else was doing it), including Calvin & Hobbes,
Peanuts (and specifically, Snoopy)
9 Chickweed Lane (and its “Hallmarks of Felinitiy” series)
and The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats
But this recent strip inspired me to try something different:
I thought that the ancient gag needed a different set-up and wondered ‘why Garfield may NOT be serious for a moment?’ And the answer was obvious.
(to clarify, that IS Garfield’s creator/CEO Jim Davis in the center panel, and NOT, as the title of this item may suggest, ME)
You’ll continue to see more from me on the “Square Root of Negative Garfield” site, and that’s both a threat and a promise.
