The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth
"Accordions rule, and so finally does Jon Arbuckle "
It's revenge of the nerds when Jon grabs Garfield's traditional lead role and takes center stage with a delightfully dorky new book of his own.
Through classic comics, blog entries, and a wealth of other wacky new material, experience Jon's dating disasters, phone call faux pas, wardrobe malfunctions, and mirthful mishaps and cheer the geek with a heart of gold as he finally finds true love with Liz, the veterinarian. (Who d have thunk it?)
So, rejoice, Jon fans, and enjoy the fun. The moment of "goof "has arrived
