Pearls Before Swine (3/16/09)

It’s nice to see some recognition for the amazing Garfield Minus Garfield on the comics page, even in a strip that makes few references to cats. What would truly be inspired would be a mention of the groundbreaking website in Garfield itself, or even a week’s worth of Garfield Minus Garfield run in place of the classic strip to see how readers would react. In the meantime, maybe cartoonist Berkeley Breathed can dedicate some of his post-Opus time to removing the sarcastic Garfield clone Bill the Cat from old Bloom County strips. The effect might not be the same, but it would at least buy us some time before the inevitable launch of Heathcliff Minus Heathcliff.
