Matt Groening Ends 'Life in Hell' After 30 Years, as Newspaper Budgets Dwindle
Posted: 6/20/2012 | By: Alexander C. Kaufman | The Wrap
For more than 30 years, "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening sketched the
syndicated comic strip "Life in Hell," a long-time staple of
alternative newsweeklies like LA Weekly and the Village Voice.
But, as the cartoon's revenue stream dried up in the wake of newspaper
budget cuts, so too did Groening's ink. The final "Life in Hell" strip,
the cartoonist's 1,669th, was published Friday.
