Only on the internet: Garfield minus Garfield

I'm always on the lookout for comics that ONLY could exist on the internet.  And I just found one.  It is Garfield minus Garfield.  This is a real site.  And it is a comic that I think could only exist in the internet age.  Apparently the creator of Garfield is down with this so, in the creator's own words:

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.

And you know, this whole idea of re-purposing other people's artwork is REALLY starting to mess with my head.  You know?
