Strip by: Billy Hicks

Jon: {Pointing upwards} This isn't real.
{Jon fades away}
{Garfield fades away}

The author writes:

Should Garfield ever end, I think this would be an incredible, mind-bending and thoughtful way to bow out. By Jon breaking the fourth wall and acknowledging the fictional nature of the comic strip, the very world in which they live fades out of existence. Garfield, apparently unaware at this revelation (or simply in shock that Jon's broken an apocalyptic verbal taboo), watches helplessly in horror - and terror - as Jon, the room and eventually himself cease to be.
