This is rather wonderful. Someone has hit on the idea of taking Garfield
strips and removing Garfield and his speech bubbles, just leaving Jon talking to himself. I hadn't heard about it before I saw this article
, but it's a brilliant idea and it really works. It's kind of like the cutup technique that Burroughs and Bowie use. There's a real depth of despair revealed here. And apparently Jim Davis likes it so much that he's got behind a new book which will reprint his original strips alongside the doctored ones. Brilliant.
