I'm gonna pass on Garen... too easy to kite, not enough damage, cool downs are way too long.
Well, that's from like, one game but... just turned me off.
cd's are not long if you get cdr boots + ghostblade+ cdr mastery's
damage is not low at low lvl's but does drop off as people get more armor natually by lvling up
eazy to kite is because your not using spin right
Keep your damage up by building Last Whisper and an IE if you get the chance.
I'm gonna throw out another recommendation for Pantheon. Seems to be the exact champ you're lookin for.
Frankly garen doesn't really match your criteria.
I'd vote for Panth, strictly speaking. Wukong also good.
im a big fan of pantheon. big dmg pretty good survivability and fun to play
