Love is Hell: a Cartoon Book by Matt Groening

By (author) Matt Groening

| book description |

The first in a series of cartoon books containing the much sought-after Life in Hell cartoon strips from the 80s and 90s which were the basis for The Simpsons. Matt Groening gives his comic treatment to the trauma of separation, the hell of heartbreak and the mess of marriage. The perfect antidote for Valentine's Day, this clever compendium of cartoon strips has advice including Forbidden conversation topics in bed (local elections, septic tanks, chores, your partner's shortcomings) 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.
