9780007191659: The Big Book of Hell

A bumper collection of the classic Life in Hell cartoon strips from the 80s and 90s which were the basis for The Simpsons.

Painstakingly assembled and rigorously organized by that master of clutter, Matt Groening, this is not another mini-jumbo, hard-to-read, abreviated compendium in that seemingly endless series of discourses on hell bu a gargantuan historical extravaganza of ten years’ worth of the ever-popular Life in Hell cartoon strip, which looks uncannily like The Simpsons if you keep your eyes closed and have a sufficiently fertile imagination.

Includes: The birth of Bongo! Binky’s arrival in Los Angeles! Akbar and Jeff’s first entrepreneurial enterprise! A sneak preview of Bart Simpson! The first Life in Hell strip! Binky’s first encounter with Sheba! Greatest hits from the first five Hell books!

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.
