Hell is car­toon heaven

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

Long be­fore Homer choked Bart or Smithers gave Mr. Burns a sponge bath, Simp­sons cre­ator Matt Groen­ing was tak­ing the piss out of life, love and work with the help of some an­thro­po­mor­phized rab­bits and two very short, very gay lovers. His syn­di­cated se­ries Life In Hell first ap­pears in our pages in 1985, its sledge­ham­mer wit aimed squarely at our in­se­cu­ri­ties and dys­func­tion. “I’m very judg­men­tal and in­tol­er­ant, sar­cas­tic and friv­o­lous, so it’s fun to have this fo­rum for drawing skimpy lit­tle rab­bits and be­ing able to say pretty sar­cas­tic stuff,” Groen­ing tells NOW.
