Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Michael Callahan (February 5, 1951, Portland, Oregon - July 24, 2010), was a cartoonist, artist, and musician noted for dealing with macabre subjects and physical disabilities. Callahan became a quadriplegic in an auto accident at 21. The accident happened in Callahan's car after a day of drinking alcoholic beverages. His car was being driven by a man with whom he was bar hopping. Following his accident, he became a cartoonist, drawing by clutching a pen between both hands. His visual artistic style was simplistic and often rough, although still legible. It has been likened to that of William Steig, James Thurber, Richard Condie, and Ben Wicks.
