A second bumper collection of the classic Life in Hell cartoon strips from the 80s and 90s which were the basis for The Simpsons. Another jam-packed jelly-rolled jeremiad of quirky and quixotic conundrums, caustic cant and comforting clutter -- all catchy, quippish and cholesterol-free -- culled from that disturbingly widespread cartoon strip Life in Hell by none other that the Simpsons creator himself, Matt Groening! Joyful angst, merry bitterness and heartwarming alienation abound in the big fiery tent that is The Huge Book of Hell. There's room for everyone in this capacious compenium! See naked little men en fez! Hear the whimsical musings of a small fry! Sing the battle hymn of Hell! Obey the law of the briny deep! Experience the finality of death! Life in Hell was the syndicated newspaper cartoon strip by Matt Groening which ran in the States during the 80s and early 90s. Asked to turn the characters into TV animation, Groening instead developed The Simpsons, retaining many of the characteristics of Binky, Bongo, Sheba, Jeff and Akbar in the series.
In a world where The Simpsons and Futurama are as popular as ever, these hellish cartoons featuring Matt Groening's zany brand of comic genius are simply gold dust.
Matt Groening is the genius behind The Simpsons and Futurama. Which says it all really.
