Indeed! Matt is one of the creative geniuses of our era. If you do not recognize the name, he was the creative force behind the Simpsons. He has done a lot more than that, and is coming out with a new cartoon series called “Disenthantment”.
Set in a ruined medieval city called Dreamland, it will follow the grubby adventures of an alcoholic princess, her elf companion and a demon. Groening himself has said: “Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.”
Yes, it is a comedy. Stewart Heritage gets into this and Groening’s other work for the Guardian.
It is a fun read!
