Jon Arbuckle has always creeped me out

But wait, isn't Garfield supposed to be in that comic strip? you might ask.

Yes, he is, but take out the fat lub of orange fur and you get Jon. Alone. And talking to himself.

The website Garfield minus Garfield decided to do just that with quite a few strips by photochopping the cat out and leaving Jon and his wacky dialog.

Here's the site's tagline:

"Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?
Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb."

Also, this site managed to bring in some of the original strips for comparison.
