9780007257539: Will and Abe?s Guide to the Universe: A Life in Hell Book

Matt Groening, gonzo cartoonist, television pioneer and proud father, presents the comic observations and wide-eyed witticisms of his sons – Will and Abe.

"The Simpsons" creator is back with another brand new collection of cartoons from his academically acclaimed weekly comic strip, Life in Hell.

The theme this time is the wit and wisdom of his two feisty and funny kids, Will and Abe, whose actual conversations, stories, songs, arguments and rants Matt transcribed and diligently illustrated from 1991 to 2003.

You get the inside boys' points-of-view on monsters, poisonous animals, death and girls, featuring such classic cartoons as "Interview with a 3 Year Old Vampire," "I'm going to tell God to Lick You," and "How to Annoy Your Brother." Also included is the hilarious multi-part guides to parents, Christmas, Bali and bullies.

Review:

“America’s sharpest cartoon strip” Observer

“Hilarious, wise and subversive” Newsday

“No other cartoonist these days is more fatalistic – or funnier” Booklist

“The jokes hit too close to home” LA Times

“Groening’s wit is double-edged, cutting ferociously from hilarity to painful, recognizable truth” Saturday Review

WILL AND ABE'S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE

This is the very latest in the ever-expanding series of mini-jumbo cartoon compendia by that rabbit-drawing rabble-rouser Matt Groening, author of Love is Hell(tm), Childhood is Hell(tm), and many, many more hell-bound books.

Unlike other collections gathered from Matt's provocative Life in Hell® comic strip, Will and Abe's Guide to the Universe shows a different side of the politically charged TV-cartoon guy - that of dazed but proud dad. All the words in these comic strips are taken from Matt's feisty and funny sons Will and Abe: their actual conversations, stories, songs, arguments, theories, explanations, excuses, snappy retorts, and flights of fancy.
