Visiting cartoons

A series of three recent Dilbert strips:

(#1)

The pointy-haired boss gets a mission from the CEO

(#2)

The pointy-haired boss gives the mission to Asok

(#3)

And Asok kills Jim Davis, the cartoonist of Garfield; Garfield hates Mondays, by the way

Oops.

Wikipedia on Davis:

James Robert “Jim” Davis (born July 28, 1945) is an American cartoonist, best known as the creator of the comic strips Garfield and U.S. Acres (aka Orson’s Farm), the former of which has been published since 1978 and has since become the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip. Davis’s other comics work includes Tumbleweeds, Gnorm Gnat and Mr. Potato Head.

(In the real world, Davis is still alive.)

More extensive cross-comic visitation in a three-part series by (British) cartoonist Andy Pandy:

(#4)

Garfield visits Calvin and Hobbes; Garfield likes lasagna

(#5)

Jon from Garfield + Dilbert

(#6)

Garfield at Dilbert’s office

Another Pandyland strip featuring Garfield:

And two with some linguistic interest:

Failure to take context into account.

(#9)

Goofy play on words.
