Synopsis:

Why do skeletons dance?
Is there a Queen Kong?
Are zombies ever happy?

These are just a few of the many perplexing questions asked, and sometimes answered, in . . . 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, Childhood Is Hell, and many, many more hell-bound books.

Unlike other collections gathered from Matt's provocative Life in Hell&reg; comic strip, Will and Abe's Guide to the Universe shows a different side of the politically charged TV-cartoon guy&#8212;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.

If you have kids, know kids, have been a kid, or remain a kid at heart, you know that kids say the most hellish things!*

*Any similarity between "hellish" and "darndest," implied or otherwise, is impossible, because darndest isn't really a word, is it?

Contains the following wildness:

  • Will and Abe Discuss Leprechauns
  • Important Questions About Cartooning
  • Abe and Will's Guide to Parents
  • Now That You're Six

And much, much more!

Collect all 73 comic strips! Better yet, we did it for you! So buy this book!

Includes the classic comic strips
"Interview with a 3-Year-Old Vampire,"
"I'm Going to Tell God to Kick You," and
"The Girls at School Drive Us Crazy!"
