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? "

This site has been making the rounds the past few days. I wouldn't say it makes the comic better per se, but it brings out an interesting dimension to Jon's character you may have missed with Garfield "answering" him.

With writers from all over the globe, the Preptimers manage sharp, literate dialog about America's premier artform (okay, fine...after jazz and hip hop...but it's up there. Fuck you, MoMa) without being pretentious in the least. Read more »

Another Character That Didn't Need To Be Created

Okay, right off the bat, I know it's hard to come up with a good, long lasting, enduring character. I'm not saying it's easy. However, when you come up with a character named Strong Guy and he's not a feature at your local circus or bizarre, then you got a little lazy in my opinion. If he were created nowadays, he would have been named Strong Person. Read more »
