The GARFIELD comic strip is read daily by over 200 million people in over 2,400 newspapers around the globe, making him the most widely syndicated and read comic strip in the world! The compilation books, featuring all the strips from the newspapers, are the foundation of the fat cat’s publishing empire. Eleven of these books have hit the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list, and seven titles once appeared simultaneously—a never-before-seen feat that has yet to be matched. The first book, Garfield at Large, published in 1980 by Ballantine Books, immediately hit #1 and stayed there for nearly two years. Now, thirty years—and 50 million Ballantine books sold—later, Garfield has reached a golden milestone with his 50th book of collectible comics: Garfield Potbelly of Gold. In honor of this auspicious achievement, the book features a limited edition, animated cover. Like Garfield himself, it’s dazzling and bursting with cattitude! Let the belly laughs begin!
