There's absolutely nothing funny about
a quadriplegic in a wheelchair. Unless, of course, that person is
John Callahan. For nearly a decade, this irreverent cartoonist
has been shocking America with his own special brand of wicked humor.
In the world of Callahan, nothing is sacred, nothing is taboo and
nothing is funnier!
John Callahan is the author of six cartoon collections Freaks of
Nature, The Night, They Say, Was Made for Love plus My Sexual Scrapbook,
Do Not Disturb Any Further, Digesting the Child Within, Do What
He Says! He's Crazy!, What Kind of God Would Allow a Thing Like
This to Happen? - an autobiography, Don't Worry He Won't Get Far
on Foot: The Autobiography of a Dangerous Man and a children's book
The King of Things and the Cranberry Clown. His cartoons appear
in the San Francisco Chronicle, the New York Daily News, The London
Observer, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Harper's,
the Utne Reader, and 50 other publications.
The Nth Degree is about feeding our
sense of humor: that vital and most intimate connection with the
child within. Laughter is the elixir of life and the universal language.
Shared, it levels walls; opens minds, assuages fear. Being able
to laugh at ourselves, our professions, our fears, our culture with
its "norms" and expectations, is like taking the kid to
work with you.
The Nth Degree is about turning light bulbs on. We are about helping
folks to recognize that there is no such thing as "Us and Them",
just one big "Us". We're about increasing awareness and
understanding; as much about the celebration of our individuality
and our differences, as the search for common ground: the search
for shared truths, interests, histories, goals, fears.
|The Gimp Store was designed by disabled
people for disabled people. If you are offended by the
any of the content here or don't have a sense of humor, we apologize
(well not really), and suggest you get over it and move on!
I began to develop the idea of Leeder
O. Men in 1985 while I was a teacher's assistant at an adaptive
weight training class at Santa Barbara City College. In the fall
of '97, dizABLED evolved into its present strip format. It's 2004
and I am learning Flash and some 3D software, so we know where it
is headed. We have started to ink the basic strip again and it will
be updated as we complete them. We would love nothing more than
to do them every day for you. Maybe someday.
Leeder still sees the new future, to boldly roll where no one has
rolled before. If you like our cartoons, we're happy you made the
visit. If not, please compare notes with the Leeder O. Phobes and
then head over to the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor.
