Garfield has had one heck of a summer. After running away from home and Jon’s attempts to “un-spoil” him, the tabby has landed in one extreme situation after the next. Following the circus misadventure and the Schnauzer-related drama, Garfield finally thought he had it made. Living with a young bearded hipster in the Italian restaurant and eating lasagna every night was a dream come true. 

Unfortunately, that dream came to an end at the hands of two robbers. Now, tied up in the backseat of a getaway car, Garfield must use his newfound street savvy to escape. The grumpy cat quickly finds himself in the hands of a crazy cat lady, who dresses him up in silly outfits and takes video of him. Garfield becomes an internet sensation in record time, causing some animosity with the other household cats. When Jon comes across Garfield on the web, he sets out to bring him home. But will Garfield even want to come home? 

Writer Scott Nickel perfectly captures the voice of Jim Davis’ iconic creation in this new limited series. Coupled with the wonderfully cartoonish art by guest artist Genevieve FT (Archie), makes this grand finale a can’t miss issue!
