I’ve never been much of a fan of the comic Garfield. It’s not that I have any active hatred for it; it just isn’t my cup of tea (or coffee, as the case may be). So I was quite surprised by how much I enjoy Garfield Minus Garfield. As the name implies, G-G consists of daily Garfield comic strips from which Garfield himself has been expunged, leaving behind a bipolar, schizophrenic Jon. It’s brilliant: Garfield for Zippy fans.
Apparently, Jim Davis enjoys it, too:
The cartoonist calls the work “an inspired thing to do” and wishes to thank Walsh for enabling him to see another side of “Garfield.”
