Prima dei Simpson, Matt Groening ha inventato un'altra famiglia tragicamente comica. Binky, un coniglio antropomorfo dall'aria indifesa e nervosa. Sheba, la sua fidanzata, sempre accigliata e depressa. Bongo, il figlio, pieno di dubbi e perennemente inibito. E poi Akbar e Jeff, coppia di gemelli gay dall'espressione imperscrutabile. Questo il cast di una vita d'inferno! Le relazioni di coppia e quelle tra genitori e figli, il consumismo, la scuola, il mondo del lavoro, la sessualità, i pregiudizi, la religione e le grandi domande esistenziali: non c'è tema che sfugga alla satira corrosiva, tenera e insieme feroce di uno dei più grandi autori del nostro tempo.

In the Age following Bugs Bunny and Charlie Brown came CALVIN AND HOBBES??!! You cry immediately. Oh, you noobs. Calvin and Hobbes is aiight, but if ya want to read a comic strip on par with Garfield and Charlie Brown, you really should read the outrageous Life in Hell. Bongo is everybody's fave, an Leggi tutto
This is one of the funniest books in the WORLD! From the Simpsons' Matt Groening, this consists of some of his other works, such as Little Bongo, Jeff & Akbar and others. You start laughing after a couple of pages and then it just escalates. My fav in here is "How to Waste 8 Hours a Day Without Gett Leggi tutto
I remember loving this book... until my 8th grade keyboarding teacher confiscated it. That's some bullshit.
Self-indulgent. Never met a person who finished this book.
Many of the strips are far too wordy for the small payoff. I appreciated a lot of what he was trying to say too but just didn’t find it very funny.
Forget the schoolyard - I learned what the "four bases" are from this book (or maybe it was from "Love is Hell"). Either way it has loads of humorous goodies.
Before Futurama, and the Simpson, Matt Groening wrote a weekly comic that would get published in the smaller newspapers of America. It told the story of a family of bunnies with their gay friends Akbar and Jeff and was appropriately named, Life in Hell. If you ever find any of the old books that hav Leggi tutto
Before there was The Simpsons or Futurama , there was Life in Hell . Matt Groening's long-running cult comic that covered topics like "love, sex, work, death, and rabbits." Since I'm starting the foolhardy task of watching ALL of one of my favorite shows of all time ( The Simpsons ), I thought it would Leggi tutto
I've taken to giving everything five stars, but this book actually earns every one of those stars. Fans of Groening's other better-known work, "The Simpsons" telly show, will also likely like this book, although I find his "Life in Hell" comics rawer, edgier and darker; the social satire and politic Leggi tutto
