John Callahan, Cartoonist of the Rude, Crude and True, Passes Away
Those cartoons--often acidic, harshly critical, and outrageously un-PC--landed Callahan in trouble over the years, but nevertheless evinced a wit and point of view that was as honest as it was dark. Callahan passed away this past Saturday, at the age of 59, from complications with bedsores and painkillers. Always true to his own sense of humor and unwilling to tone down or compromise, Callahan has left a narrative of cartoons that not only produce evil snickers in its audience, but the sort of death's head grins only the grimmest humor can produce.
For a wonderfully personal obituary--with excellent descriptions of Callahan's wickedest cartoons--head to the Washington Post, here.
