So, we have a property that has become known for it’s specific style and design, to the point where it’s literally iconic and the characters are as unchanging as ancient woodcut designs, and so the best way to adapt it for comic is to completely jettison that style and do something entirely weird and wacky. This does not work, you guys.Matthew's Thoughts
I HATE GARFIELD WITH A PASSION. I never found the cartoon strip funny. I know, you scream heresy, but I can point to a dozen comics that are more interesting than Garfield. If you are looking for something barely amusing, and super kid friendly, then Garfield: Homecoming #2 is going to be perfect for you. And to top it all off, none of the characters are on model… because. HARD PASS.Stephen's Thoughts
