Garfield - Remixed
Jim Davis' cat Garfield has seen a bit of a banal existence since his creation in 1978, but recently started picking up a unique following on the internet. Instead of reposting the strips as-is, people have started giving them a surreal spin. Production house Fatal Farms re-enacts select strips in homemade costumes at LasagnaCat.com.
Garfield Minus Garfield is an incredibly dedicated site that even Jim Davis admits to enjoying. Each day Garfield is removed from the daily strip and posted at GarfieldMinusGarfield.net, resulting in what they describe as "an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life."
If you want to get started on your own oddball strip, the official Garfield Strip Creator is the way to go. No drawing ability required.
