Luckily there’s not a lot of stage directions in Garfield.
We have to imagine what comes next, as the
lines that draw that world can only show so much:
some furniture, a window, an undefined tree maybe.
Movement may appear to be still, but the mind can
fill in the rest. Imagine what it would be like if there
was movement on the comics page — what one
might see out of the corner of their eye.
