Garfield minus Garfield

I was never a huge fan of Garfield, but I think this might be my new favorite strip.
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.
I heard about this from the grinding.be groupblog.

This is the first time in like 15 years that I've been entertained by Garfield.
