Garfield rules!


This is a book celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Garfield comic strip (back then, in 1998) and I was so lucky to find it in a local bookstore.

The book hasn't only re-prints of popular comic book strips, but also it presents different section about the characters of the franchise, the history of how it began the iconic comic strip, the impact of the comic strip in the world, some of its cool related merchandise in different kind of fields, etc.
