I’ll be honest – I am not a fan of Garfield. I thought the strip should have went away a long time ago. That is until I read a new version of this called “Garfield minus Garfield”
The comic is simple: publish a strip with just Jon, the owner of the cat. Photoshop out the annoyance and poof! You have a completely new comic! Best part – it’s FUNNIER than the original!
Now there are some of you that are into the Lasagana eating feline. That is all and well. I was never into Cathy comics, either. But I like the new turn of direction with this. Makes me wonder what other comics would get funnier.
BTW – Dan Walsh, the creator, started it as a joke. Now it’s grown to a regular readership including of all people, Jim Davis. This goes to prove you never know what will be the next big thing in life.
Maybe they’ll make those plush window hanging Garfield without the cat. It will just be four suction cups….
