Garfield Gestures More

A wrote about the gestures I saw Garfield (and Jon) make in six months of their comic a while ago. It is now the single most popular page on this site. So, I decided to browse the ones from April 2006 to now as well. (done till May 27)

    Very interesting–I’ve enjoyed Jim Davis’s strip for years, and I appreciate his command of gesture (but more now).
