I'm not a fan of Garfield but some of you will be so here is an article from yesterday's Daily Telegraph. There was also a two page spread on graphic novels in their review section but too large to insert here.

I think that GARFIELD is the second-most-successful comics property in history, after 'PEANUTS'. I think the strip is well-drawn and professional, but there's something slightly cynical and calculated about it: the strip avoids the use of seasons, or play on words [in order to sell to worldwide markets] which must surely limit it's scope for comedy-writing.

It's difficult to argue with this level of success, however, and the merchandising profits from the 'in-car' sucker-grip soft toys alone must be phenomenal.

Is anyone else here familiar with Garfield Minus Garfield? Certainly puts a whole new spin on the strips.
