GARFIELD Creator Jim Davis Drew a Galactus Story For Marvel

Nearly 40 years ago, cartoonist Jim DavisGarfield became one of the most popular comic strips in the world. Davis’ fat cat is famous for his voracious appetite, so it’s appropriate that Davis’ first-ever Marvel comic book story will feature a character whose hunger might surpass Garfield’s: Galactus, the devourer of worlds.

Entertainment Weekly (EW) has posted an advance preview of Davis’ story for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #26, which is part of format breaking issue that takes the form of a magazine that was made by Squirrel Girl and her friends. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl writer Ryan North penned the Galactus story, which was drawn by Davis with his assistants Gary Barker and Dan Davis.

In the page posted on EW’s site, Galactus is basically a cosmic Garfield, with the Silver Surfer playing the role of Garfield’s long-suffering owner, Jon Arbuckle. The story also maintains the comic strip format of Garfield, as Galactus frustrates his herald’s attempts to keep him from eating inhabited planets. This version of Galactus probably hates Mondays, too.

Davis and his assistants aren’t the only guest collaborators for the issue. Frank Cho is illustrating a story about Spider-Man‘s nemesis, Kraven the Hunter, while Rahzzah takes on the webhead himself. Chip Zdarsky also gets to revisit Howard the Duck in a short story, while Rico Renzi’s contribution puts Squirrel Girl’s companion, Tippy-Toe, in the spotlight. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #26 will be released on Wednesday, November 8.
