Close to Home Exposed
A Close to Home Collection
Start with an everyday occurrence, add several helpings of absurdity, a few cups of silliness, and a dash of sickness and you get Close to Home. The goofy people and brilliant humor of this single-panel strip have put smiles on the faces of readers. This kooky collection, Close to Home Exposed, captures the hilarity of some of its best cartoon panels. As the comic’s name suggests, Close to Home provides humor that’s comfortable and familiar; yet the strip also has a palpable element of danger or nonsense. Topics vary widely, from health care and parenting to car repairs and shopping. But whether it’s addressing dating or death–or just as likely, dating and death–Close to Home always delivers the off-center laughs its readers have come to expect.
