John McPherson is a genius when it comes to bizarre humor and his Close to Home 2019 Day-to-Day Calendar is proof.From the man who uses helium to hit the higher notes in his church choir to the teacher who offers ten extra credit points to her students for massaging her feet, John’s odd-looking characters set in crazy situations make his cartoon panel unlike any other. As an added bonus, the weekends feature John’s picks of his favorite cartoons from his twenty-seven year career, and the back of each page includes Daily Extra content such as puzzles, jokes, lists, quotes, activities, tips, and trivia. The calendar also features a plastic easel backer for easy tabletop display.

Where there is stress, there is humor." --John McPherson
* Close to Home, syndicated by Universal uClick, lampoons the best of popular culture one controversy at a time.
Everything I Need to Know I Learned on Jerry Springer: A Close to Home Collection is a Close to Home collection. Creator John McPherson's sardonic wit creates an innocent hullabaloo with the Center for Nursing Advocacy and earns the accolades of Leavenworth Federal Detention Center's inmate #19108045.
* McPherson's mastery is elevating the mundane to the magnificent. Scenes of societal sloth, coworker conundrums, dysfunctional discord, and medical malpractice become achingly funny when sketched by his pen.
F Minus dares to ponder thoughtful perplexities like, "Why are we here?" "What is life all about?" and "Can I take only one shower per week if it's seven times the normal length?"
* This thinking man's cartoon panel is less than a year old and already appears in more than 100 newspapers.
Short on life lessons, precious moments, and pearls of wisdom, Tony Carrillo's F Minus takes on life's serious issues by pinning them to the ground and stealing their lunch money. (Then it feels a little bit guilty and gives some of the money back.)
* As Carrillo explains, "I draw my material from my experiences at a wide array of failed careers. Over time, I have worked as a pizza cook, Web site designer, dancing costumed character, portrait artist, insurance drone, waiter, custom framer, camel ride attendant at the zoo, and the guy at the airport that waves orange wands at the airplanes. As varied as these jobs were, eventually I had the profound realization that they all had two important things in common: Each offered a wealth of comedic inspiration and there was always a creepy guy named Larry."
