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. Letís 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 already read the free comic book day selection and the stuff on the website, and I was actually planning on ordering this on Friday. While it's only been part of the story, I agree with absolutely everything you wrote about it.
