When I was young I used to love Garfield. It was wry, it was insightful and there was some really nasty yet clever stuff going on there. Then it became a machine. Every day, the same old pulp churned out. Garfield is mean because he treats Jon so bad. Jon’s a bit odd. But,.. what happens when they take out all of Garfield’s speech bubbles?
I’ll tell you what happens, They make it funny again!
Now the comic’s focus is the sad recluse that is Jon. All the comic timing has returned and the comedy hasn’t been deadened by the unnessecary wise cracks of the cat.
This is a MUST READ!!!!!
