Here may be another Application that could be downloaded, then collect dust. It’s an Application to get the popular cult comic: “Garfield Minus Garfield”. It’s a comic where Dan Walsh removed Garfield from all the comic strips. Therefore we see Jon pretty much talking to himself.
What started as a humorous bit between friends turned into a big item and rebirth of the popular comic strip. Jon will now mostly be standing by himself saying things that are even more funny when there is not a cat nearby.
Uclick provides humor, comic strips, manga, graphic novels, editorial cartoons, and other content for desktop, web and mobile phones. The company also produces crosswords and other puzzles.
“Garfield Minus Garfield is a unique success story and we’re delighted it’s now available on the Apple App Store,” said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. “It’s a global phenomenon, and our presentation of Garfield Minus Garfield alongside the original Garfield strips gives iPhone and iPod touch users the chance to see exactly what all the hype is about. It’s an insightful, new spin on a modern classic.”
The comic on Gocomics shows the original, then the “erased” comic. Hopefully the iPhone app will do the same. What would be cooler is if you tilted the iphone one way, you would see Garfield, then make him disappear by tilting the other way. Kinda like those old baseball cards that would make the baseball players’ bat swing.
