Presurfer, one of my fav blogs to read, has this nice write-up on the minus Garfield site:
Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?
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 and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.
If you’ve never found Garfield funny, or did as a kid, then go read these. It’s a new twist that is somewhat mindblowing. I love it. The sad thing is, I’m Arbuckle in minus Garfield … sigh.
