Ah, 80's nostalgia. As a kid I used lie in bed reading the Garfield books late into the night. I think I owned the first 20 so and I'm not sure I should I admit that in a public forum... Thank god nobody really reads this thing. Anyway, whether you were/are a fan of the comic strip or not, check out Garfield Minus Garfield As the site describes:
"Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?"
