Sort of like "Harvey", if "Harvey" had been written by Beckett

How do you make one of the lamest comics in the world into one of the edgiest comics in the world? By simply removing the main character, it turns out. Here's my favorite.

That's utterly amazing. I may need to make a userpic out of this one.

They remind me enough of Red Meat that I did some versions up in the Red Meat Construction Set and posted them here. Kind of creepy!

Have you seen Arbuckle?

It is Garfield through Jon's eyes. Since Jon can't actually understand Garfield, the cat's thought bubbles are removed and it is a lonely man talking to his cat. Like this or this or this.

Damn you, Francis! I intended to buckle down and get stuff done at work today. Instead I'm laughing my ass off for all the corridor to hear. Nice going.

I seem to recall a similar project in which Garfield remained, but his "speech" was removed.

I thought I had commented this earlier, Tablesaw, but it seems to have disappeared. That comic is "Arbuckle." It tells Garfield from the perspective of Jon Arbuckle, a very lonely man that talks to his cat.

Whoops -- sorry, Charles. You did indeed comment earlier, and I didn't realize that your comment had gotten snagged by my spam screener (for having more links in it than the screener likes, probably). It's there now.

There was also my Garfield riff in Modern Humorist's "Rough Draft", in which Garfield was presented as being Jon's slovenly, gross human roommate.

I can hear the commentary done in Adam West's voice a la "Family Guy", can't you?

This some funny stuff. I've loved garfield for as long as I remember and this gives it that dry unique adult perspective you never realized before. I found a site with a bunch more minus garfield strips.

Even more Minus Garfield comics

So i'm as a result of Mn, and winters the following are extraordinary. I wanted a couple of world of warcraft to get me and my friends because of the frozen instances, even when encouraging me personally to be pretty strutting for the hallways at school.I actually dearly loved my personal coffee world of warcraft. They endured myself virtually 3 years, and i applied these approximately Hundred or so days per annum. Managed to get numerous adds to, as well as color dealt with each and every ensemble.The only weak spots: carrying them without having tallish socks gave me bruises, plus the world of warcraft was given stamped not to mention mineral water damaged almost every year.
