Garfield at Large: His First Book by Jim Davis

Garfield at Large: His First Book by Jim Davis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This is the original Garfield, and for long time fans you’ll know that he looked different in the early days and that Odie wasn’t always around.

It’s true! Garfield was a bit more chunky, and far lazier as there was no Odie to amuse himself with. He still loved lasagna and sleeping. This tells the story of how Odie ended up living with Jon and Garfield, and of Garfield’s beginnings.

I bought this back in high school, and have reread it a few times. I don’t tend to collect comic book collections, but this one is rather special.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are just getting into the Avengers’ fandom because of the movies and have little to no knowledge of the comic books that led us there, then this is a good book to read.

Not only does the author provide background on the Avenger’s comic book histories, there are histories of the comic book creators and people with influence at Marvel. It also takes a look into the cinematic universe, taking in Robert Downey Jr’s affiliation with the MCU, how The First Avenger almost didn’t happen, and other cinematic references.

It answer a lot of questions I didn’t even know I had about the Avengers, and awakened a keen interest in the comic book side of the MCU.

This book is an asset to all Avenger’s fans and I recommend reading it at least once.
