Making Garfield New Again

Once upon a time Garfield was funny and innovative. I think that was when I was five. Since then? Well not so much. Izzy at work pointed Garfield Minus Garfield to me. It is far better than anything Jim Davis and Co. have put out in a long time.

It is a site that removes Garfield and his thought-bubble commentary from the strips. Because nobody in Jon Arbuckle's world can actually hear Garfield talk of course. You are left with the world Jon inhabits and it's bitter commentary on the pathetic life of a single suburban male.

UPDATE: Huh, there are two strips like this. Arbuckle features redrawn Garfield strips that still have Garfield and Odie, just not their thought balloons.
