Garfield Minus Garfield

July 14th, 2008 by

Without Garfield, Jon Arbuckle is a sad, sad man. And surprisingly, Garfield Minus Garfield takes on an entirely new and powerful poignancy. From the site:

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness in a quiet American suburb.

The comic was called “an inspired thing to do” by original Garfield creator Jim Davis in an interview with the Washington Post. Enjoy.
