As a young boy, we loved Garfield for his snide comments, laziness and overall sarcastic demeanor. We would check out books from the library and breeze through them in a day, which was great because it made you feel like you actually accomplished something and put off the next Hardy Boys book until tomorrow. We started eating lasagna and kicking dogs because of Garfield.
As we grew older and more mature, we noticed that Garfield had thought balloons instead of talking balloons like Jon. Garfield Minus Garfield obviously takes Garfield out of the strips to make "an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life." So sad it's hilarious.
