Garfield Goes Digital

After 30+ years of trade paperbacks, Random House Publishing Group will start to make Jim Davis’ beloved Garfield strips in a digital format for the first time. The first batch of the comic strip collections will be published as an eBook, particularly Davis’ first and second books, Garfield at Large and Garfield Gains Weight. The newest collection, Garfield Brings Home the Bacon will also get an eBook release.

As for future plans, Random House is planning to continue publishing digital collections of Garfield strips, with an estimated four Garfield eBook titles every month for the next 18 months, until the entire collection is available in eBook format.

Garfield is a comic strip created by Jim Davis. Published since June 19, 1978, it chronicles the life of the title character, the cat Garfield (named after Davis’ grandfather); his owner, Jon Arbuckle; and Arbuckle’s dog, Odie. As of 2007, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals, and held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip.
