Certainly, Garfield has evolved over the years into something else. Today, Garfield walks on two legs, isn't even close to how fat he was then (he just has a little gut) and is much meaner to everyone around him. Here, in his very first strips, he's got about six chins, is mean, but still sweet to his owner, less cynical, more cute, and just plain more heartwarming.
Garfield may be more recognized as he is today, but I've always felt that his older comics are his best. Garfield Treasury is a must buy and keep for all fans of the fat cat. Highly recommended.
