Garfield Minus Garfield: the book

(I can't believe this comic strip exists... and, having seen proof that it exists, I can't believe how depressing it is.)

In February of 2008, Dan Walsh started trotting out a unique webcomic--Garfield Minus Garfield, a reworking of Jim Davis's Garfield strips that systematically excises Garfield from the storyline. The resulting strips, featuring Jon Arbuckle, Odie, Nermal, etc., "create a new, even lonelier atmosphere for Jon Arbuckle... Jon’s observations seem to teeter between existential crisis and deep despair" (according to a hopefully tongue-in-cheek review in the New York Times).

Now, thanks to Davis's Paws, Inc. and Ballantine Books, readers will be able to enjoy Garfield Minus Garfield in full-color book format. The book will feature both the original and altered strips, as well as an introduction by Walsh, and will come out in October.

I'll stick with Achewood and Sinfest. Garfield (even minus Garfield) is still pretty bad.
