Introducing the absence of Garfield

Posted in Uncategorized by James Benedict Brown on 5 August, 2008

Some examples of a recent discovery, the surreal online cartoon / blog Garfield Minus Garfield.

Irishman Dan Walsh conceived Garfield Minus Garfield earlier this year, and the cartoon has proved to be a phenomenal hit.

Walsh explains:

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.

A new strip is uploaded most days, and with the blessing of Jim Davies (the creator of the original Garfield strips) a book is on the way.
