Garfield-Minus-Garfield

I'm going to blog about some funny comic sites for the next couple of days.... I appreciate Garfield for what it is.... Jim Davis created a comic strip about a cranky orange cat that loves lasagna.... Every once in a while you'll get a great Garfield comic, but even I know that it's difficult to create comic gold every day!

An artist and musician from Ireland named Dan Walsh has created a website called Garfield-Minus-Garfield. The title of the site explains everything. Dan Walsh takes the three panel strip and takes out Garfield. To tell you the truth, the strip is as least as funny, or even funnier, without Garfield.

Dan describes the site as "a site
dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb."

Here are some samples from the site:
