Close to Home is a daily, one-panel comic strip by American cartoonist John McPherson that debuted in 1992.[1] The comic strip features no ongoing plot, but is instead a collection of one-shot jokes covering a number of subjects that are "close to home", such as marriage, children, school, work, sports, health and home life. It runs in nearly 700 newspapers worldwide.[2]
