Transformation by subtraction

I have to admit, I’m deeply creeped out by this example of transformation by subtraction: Garfield Minus Garfield. As the site says: “Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipol[a]r disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s 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 lon[e]liness in a quiet American suburb.”
