{Jon watches as a blank space the shape of Garfield and his thought balloons walks by.}

The author writes:

Technically, Garfield Minus Garfield should be called "Garfield replaced with the background." I have remedied the problem, more or less following the conventions of removing Garfield and his dialogue. I left in Garfield's motion lines since it's not strictly speaking Garfield, and I could not in good conscience remove the shadow, since I'd actually be adding light.

(Interestingly, Garfield Minus Garfield would have been able to do this had they kept the files in the original GIF format.)

Also, to all the Go players out there, you may be interested in the two dots in the second panel. In order to get the quickmask to leave them, I had to make two eyes.
