Garfield Minus Garfield ?!

Monday, February 25, 2008

Some of you people maybe already know that i'm a loyal follower of Garfield Comic Strip :D

I found out today that there's some person that has a unique idea ! That person make a parody of the Garfield Comic Strip into a Garfield Minus Garfield !

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?
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 lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.


Basically it remove Garfield out of frame, thus only displaying Jon, which already have some unique mind and attitude (if you get what i mean) ;)

So, let's take a look some of the strips, compared to the original, and you'd be the judge ;)

Bottom line, if you like this kinda thing, it's worth your time to browse through Garfield Minus Garfield ;)

As for me, the Original Garfield Comic Strip is perfectly fine :D

As a Garfield Fan myself i have read every compendium up to the latest and i did found a strip that remixes but it is about Jon being completely insane since Garfield responses are erased.

Another had the idea of completely do their own Garfield strip reusing artwork,so they were done in a fan fiction way, and i must say that some are very good.

And there was another that got a Cease & Desist letter in less than a month because it also made its own strips but in the strip john and garfield said or discussed the most profane things you can imagine.

i remember having downloaded most of them all before they got cut out. needless to say these kind of experiments don`t last much time in the open.

Well, certainly there will be things like this if something is popular, they make an excuse that it was a form of flattery ;P

Let's just see if this one will survive, at least the person still have the will to do it :P

I still prefer the original :D

I've been a huge fan of Garfield since I started reading. I'm now 32 years old and still love Garfield just as much! The fact that someone has so little to do with their time other than hack up Garfield comic strips, in my opinion, says it all!

Hopefully the "creator" of Garfield minus Garfield will soon get a true hobby!

I love Garfield!

Suffereing from a form of non-military PTSD, this new form of Garfield is highly reconmended for those who believe they are different from natural society!

Reading Garfield Minus Garfield is one
h ell of a head trip.

These are much better without Garfield around to mess up Jon.
