What Happens When You Take Garfield Out Of Garfield?

01

Garfield comic is a favorite of many generations. But sometimes, for some, it felt like the combination of Garfield’s sardonic quips and Jon’s Weltschmerz was a bit too much. Author Dan Walsh took the hint and decided to mend things, taking the famous cat out of the equation in a series of comics. The redone series is called Garfield Minus Garfield and what we now have is a somewhat hilarious, but maybe overly too depressing depiction of the life of one Jon Arbuckle. For the ultra-dedicated fans of Odie, Walsh produced a print version of  Garfield Minus Garfield. Even Jim Davis, the original author of Garfield, was fascinated by the reworked versions. Below you can look at some of the strips that were posted online.

Don’t we all?
