Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell

Soul-sapping traffic jams. Bad art. Grating TV. Obsolete computers. McManshions. "We are in hell," Edmund grimly remarks to his initially doubtful wife, Rosemary, in Bruce Eric Kaplan's endearing cartoon odyssey, Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell (Simon & Schuster). After a political bigwig confirms their suspicions ("Everyone in the government was on it. That was why they are always so slow and annoying"), the couple turn to religion, hypnotism, and breathing workshops, just stopping short of heaven. Happily, heaven can wait.
