Minus Jon Plus Jon Is Garfield Minus Garfield With Dr. Jon Osterman

God is real and he hates Mondays.

Garfield Minus Garfield is so last decade, man. So Jon Arbuckle’s a weirdo who lives alone and talks to himself. At least he’s still a human being whose corporal essence adheres to the laws of physics and reality. Also he doesn’t live on Mars, probably. That’s why Minus Jon Plus Jon is a much better depicting of existential loneliness and angst.

Says the creator of the webcomic:

Garfield Minus Garfield is a brilliant piece of deconstruction, a powerful, but above all elegant, exploration of the quiet desperation of Jon Arbuckle. In my own fevered dream amidst the Watchmen zeitgeist, it occurs to me that Jon Arbuckle’s existential woes have nothing on those of Jon Osterman, aka Dr. Manhattan. With apologies to Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Jim Davis, Dan Walsh, and various other blue shoulders upon which I stand.

There are only about 46 comics in the archive, so you’ll be able to bang the whole series out pretty quickly. They are worth every second.
