About Square Root of Minus Garfield

Square Root of Minus Garfield is a webcomic devoted to parodies and mash-ups of the popular comic strip Garfield, by Jim Davis.

Several other people have created various different Garfield parodies. We thought it would be cool to make one ourselves. The problem is, the space of potential Garfield mash-ups is so large that in just a few minutes we had come up with six different ideas for exactly how we could turn a Garfield strip into a parody. And any given style of parody might get stale after a while.

So we decided to make the mash-up style variable from strip to strip. The styles will recur, but every now and then we'll come up with a new type of parody we can do.

Why the name Square Root of Minus Garfield?

One of the more popular Garfield parodies is Garfield Minus Garfield. We liked the mathematical nature of the title. And in mathematics the square root of a negative (or "minus") number is what's known as an imaginary number, which is cool because we are presenting imaginary Garfield strips.
