About the Book

A glorious celebration of a comic strip legend.

Before there was the cat, there was a gnat – a gnat comic strip that cartoonist Jim Davis spent years in the 1970's trying to sell to newspapers. Starting over, Davis noted there were no comic strips featuring cats – and having grown up on a farm with some 25 felines, Davis knew cats.

Davis' new strip starring a fat, snarky, blithely destructive, and resolutely lazy tabby debuted in 41 U.S. newspapers on June 19, 1978. Forty years later, Garfield holds the Guinness World Record as the most widely syndicated comic strip ever and Davis' supercilious fat cat commands a media empire that includes feature films, Emmy Award winning television shows, and best-selling books.

Now Easton Press presents a very special edition of the official 40th anniversary Garfield book -- AGE HAPPENS: Garfield Hits the Big 4-0 an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition personally autographed by the author and artist, Jim Davis.

A 40th anniversary Garfield retrospective.

This lavish birthday collection features all 40 Garfield birthday strips from 1978 to 2018 in full-color complete with their original titles and drop panels just as they first appeared, enabling fans to see how Garfield, Jon Arbuckle, Odie, and Dr. Liz Wilson have evolved over the decades.

AGE HAPPENS: Garfield Hits the Big 4-0 also includes trivia and fun facts (did you know that in Sweden his name is “Gustav”?), original art from Davis, celebrity guest cartoonists, fan art, and a foreword by Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Pulitzer Prize winning creator of the landmark musical, Hamilton, paying tribute to the comic strip that was his first pop-culture obsession.

Own the signature of the world's favorite cartoonist.

Creator of the world's most popular comic strip, Jim Davis is a four-time Emmy Award winner and the author of eleven #1 New York Times Bestsellers -- and the only author ever to have seven titles on the Times list simultaneously. His signature is already prized, and it will be even more so on this Collector's Edition 40th anniversary celebration, AGE HAPPENS: Garfield Hits the Big 4-0.
