“John is the funniest man on four wheels.” –ROBIN WILLIAMS
“Screw the critics. I love Callahan. His cartoons are like tongue-kissing your grandma. If it’s so bad, why does it feel so good?” –DAVE ATTELL, Writer and host of Comedy Central’s Insomniac with Dave Attell
From the warped mind of one of America’s most twisted cartoonists comes The Best of Callahan–a wildly satirical, wickedly funny collection of favorite cartoons, of fans and author alike. Warning: This book is not for the timid, the easily offended, the politically correct, or your grandparents. It’s for people who like their humor dark . . . about issues Mom and Dad told us were impolite to talk about in public. If you find offense, you shouldn’t have been looking! We’re not the boss of you. . . .
From the Trade Paperback edition.
