Strip by: Sanjay Kulkaček

{Nermal, who has features of D.W. Read, is talking to Garfield, who has features of Arthur Read}
Nermal: They say the older you get, the wiser you get.
Nermal: You must be very, very wise.
Nermal: Very, very, very, very, very wise!
Garfield: I wonder if anyone will miss her?

The author writes:

Prolific Garfield theorist manyhills won an Arthur-identifying contest I was running and requested, as his prize, I draw Arthur as Garfield and submit it here. This is the result.

This particular Garfield strip intrigued me because I see so much of D.W. in Nermal here and so much of Arthur in Garfield's frustration with Nermal. I invite you to read Nermal's lines with D.W.'s voice in your head.
