In the UK, over 60 Garfield books, mainly “Pocket Books” or paperbacks, have been published by Ravette. The format is slightly different, as the strips are presented in a vertical style. In the Garfield 20th anniversary book, however, Davis said vertical stacking was the one type of comic anthology layout he wanted to avoid the most when compiling the above collections.

Additionally, adaptations of Garfield television specials have been published in comic format:

  • Garfield as Himself (2004) collects the following books:
  • Here Comes Garfield (1982)
  • Garfield on the Town (1983)
  • Garfield Gets a Life (1991)
  • Garfield Holiday Celebrations (2004) collects the following books:
  • Garfield in Disguise (Halloween special) (1985)
  • Garfield’s Thanksgiving (1988)
  • A Garfield Christmas (1987)
  • Garfield Travel Adventures (2005) collects the following books:
  • Garfield in the Rough (1984)
  • Garfield in Paradise (1986)
  • Garfield Goes Hollywood (1987)
