Matt Groening is probably best-known as the creator of the television show The Simpsons, but many of his fans prefer his older and even more cynical Life in Hell comics. The Big Book of Hell is an impressive collection of a decade's worth of his best work.
From School Library Journal
YA-- Groening has compiled his best work from the "Life in Hell" strip. The book has everything from the birth and evolution of his best-known characters such as Bongo and Binky to a prototype of Bart Simpson. A hilarious, insightful view of life in and out of Hell.

Some readers may be turned by these aspects that make it so appealing to the rest of us. Face it - Groening doesn't exactly hesitate to be excruciatingly honest, as you can see in his discussion of saran wrap vs. party balloons as contraceptives. But it's all in good humor and, let's face it, more people have been there than we like to admit.
If I haven't completely suaded you from this book, give it a shot. Sit back, get comfortable, and be willing to laugh in spite of yourself. I give it a five.
uses a combination of everyday life and some paradoxical
events.It's definitely a must for those seeking the excitement
and fun of the Simpsons.Great humour effects that can erase your
worries.The laughter book of the century!!!
