Death attempted to lure Garfield into its clutches by disguising itself as lasagna.

Thus did Death die.

My 65 year old dad loved this particular strip and thought it was absolutely hilarious. Maybe because he barely understands texting? I have no clue.

The bottom middle panel has two original drawings in it. That's a lot more than I expected from Davis.

Wait, Garfield communicates directly with Jon now? I don't remember that from the strips.

In the papers, it literally says Garfield by Jim Davis. I'll believe he has interns doing the inking, but can he legally take jokes without crediting the writers anywhere?
>>
Remember when Garfield had elements of the supernatural, such as a haunted hamburger?
>>
>>77765432
Davis supervises the production of the comic and he signs in. That's about it.

Nigga. Garfield and Friends was the fucking shit.

Garfield is the Spongebob of comic strips. It was great when it started but now it's a mere shell of what it once was and only still exists because of idiots still liking it and merchandise sales.
>>
>>77766201
I guess you haven't heard of VC Andrews, who died in 1986 but has books credited to her to this day.

Ghost writers, anon. People that are payed to write but are not openly given credit. This is basic shit.

"While retaining creative control and being the only signer, Davis now only writes and usually does the rough sketches. Since the late 1990s most of the work has been done by long-time assistants Brett Koth and Gary Barker. Inking and coloring work is done by other artists, while Davis spends most of the time supervising production and merchandising the characters."

>because failing to credit writers sounds illegal.

There is such a thing as ghost writers and ghost artists. Are you really this sheltered that you've never heard of it or just playing dumb? Usually the deal is that the ghost artist or writer gets paid well and the terms are well set that they know that they're not getting credit but are compensated, otherwise they wouldn't have accepted the deal in the first place.

>>77767194
Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes were examples of the few comic strip exceptions where the cartoonist did everything. A lot of other comic strips usually bring in assistants, ghost artists, or ghost writers because it's hard as fuck to keep the comic going 365 days. And sometimes, some people get so successful that they have the money to hire young artists and writers to take over the strip for them.

Jim Davis started out as an assistant to Tom K. Ryan for Ryan's comic Tumbleweeds.

Will Eisner brought in a lot of assistants near the later years of The Spirit, including Jules Feiffer and Wally Wood. They weren't publicly credited back when the comic was published but subsequent reprints do credit them and (as far as I know) Eisner never hid the fact that they worked for him after the comic strip originally ended.

Frank Frazetta used to be a ghost artist for Al Capp's Li'l Abner for seven years.

Roy Thomas was or is a ghost writer on the Amazing Spider-Man comic strip in recent years (when fans were fearing that the comic strip was going to take a turn like Brand New Day and go back to single-Peter, Thomas was the one who went online to say that it was just a flashback story)

Tom Batiuk once had John Byrne as a ghost artist on Funky Winkerbean twice, and Sean McKeever as a ghost writer for a week. The comic strip still credited Batiuk, but he never hid it, there were a lot of articles announcing Byrne's arrival on the strip, and Sean McKeever even got interviewed about Funky prior to his arc's publication.

Also while Eisner was drafted during World War II, the Spirit comic strip continued on with Eisner's name on it, with other writers and artists working on it, such as Lou Fine.

Six years into his comic strip "Steve Canyon," Milt Caniff hired Dick Rockwell as a ghost artist. There's an article by Mark Evanier where he said that Rockwell penciled the comic and then inked everything except for the main characters (since Caniff was going to ink those himself).

Don W. Moore was an uncredited writer for Flash Gordon and started like a year after the comic was created.

Wayne Boring, who's primarily known for his Superman art in the 1950's, was a ghost background artist for Prince Valiant in the late 60's (around the time Foster's health declined some).

Bud Fisher's Mutt and Jeff got so successful that he hired a lot of assisstants and let them do the comic (though he kind of advised on some occasions). I forget which book it was it said that there were times Fisher would be in Europe for months so the ghosts were left to do what they felt like with the comic strip. Bob Kane admitted that he wanted to be Bud Fisher.

There's probably lots more examples.
