Secret Über-Depressing Undertones, upon removal of cat.









Garfield has always been one of my top 5 favorite comic strips. I had Garfield books #1 - #40 I think (Older sister Dani started the collection with the first 20 or so).
The best part is, creator Jim Davis gave "-garfield" his blessing and they are publishing an actual hard copy book with all your favorite strips, but no cat.

Turns out Jon Arbuckle is a dark miserable depressing shell of a man, full of "existential angst."

I wonder what we'd think of Calvin if Hobbes was erased? I shudder to think.

#1. THIS is stupid awesome. I'd never learn these things about u out on the dancefloor! Maybe we DO need the internet for such revalationing after all?!

I, my own self, had all of Matt Groening's books. Read, re-read, complete w/ spaghetti sauce stains.

#2. nope, that's it really.
