Thanks, Dancesports! I never would have expected you to find one of the Matt Groening cartoon books, and this is one I've never read so I'm really excited!

Thanks a bunch for all your kindness! I appreciate it a lot! :)

Finished reading this today! This is a great collection of Matt Groening's comic strips from 1989-1991. My favorites are the simple one-panel strips where Bongo, the son, is tied to a chair alone in a room while his father makes a comment from outside about why he's being grounded. There was also a Bart Simpson cameo, or at least his silhouette, while Bongo says "I swear I haven't been wearing any bootleg Simpsons T-shirts."

But the absolute gem of the book to me was the strip where Matt compared "Things Dad Said" with "Things I Say," with such differences as "Haven't you watched enough cartoons for one day?" with "C'mere quick! Cartoons are on!"

Great observations about life and relationships. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks again, Dancesports, for the RABCK! I'll try to think of a good place to wild release it.

Now who could keep a straight face after spotting Groening's Hell-comics? Some of the Akbar & Jeff strips are just so over the top you can't stop snorting and feeling guilty for wanting to act exactly the same... Thank you so much Hakkalina for sending me this!

I have a real love-hate -relationship with Matt Groening. I can't stand The Simpsons (anymore), but Futurama has it's moments. Hell-comics are something inbetween, at times it's hilarious, at times I can't turn the page fast enough to avoid boredom. This album made no exception! The ones I liked the most were Akbar&Jeff camp ad (just brillz ideas for man camp!) and war strips, that felt very current though they're 20 years old. Otherwise there were strips that I couldn't find funny anyhow (stupid me?) and those that made me snort - like the Bongo ones mentioned earlier.

Taking this to local BC meetup! If no one wants the book, it'll return home with me...

I enjoyed the comic, it was fast to read and funny too. Some of the stuff was so 90's I didn't get them - I can't remember that far in the past anymore, haha. But it was sad how the Gulf War strips felt very current.

My fave strip was the "Things Dad Said" vs. "Things I Say, hilarious!

I really enjoy Matt Groening's cartoons. But I have to admit that Binky and Bongo are my favorite characters. And my favorite strip from the book was the strip about How to handle overwhelming stress. Somehow it seemed quite familiar ;)

I'll release the book on our local meet-up.
And if none of the bookcrossers take the book I'll release it on the street near Cafe Sirius. There is annual Medieval market this weekend so there eill be lot of people on the streets.
