"Hell Isn't All That Bad"

In this story about surviving difficult circumstances, a fellow named Gofer Buttwart dies and goes to Hell. He rises to the occasion, but it's not an easy adjustment.

In retrospect I realize that the panel above was in some ways an unconscious reenactment of the time in 1973 when I was beaten up by three gay-bashers in Atlanta — except that there was no comparable lack of vindictiveness in my comic book guys' actions. Gimme demons who are just doing their job any day!

The story was originally published in Snarf #9 (Kitchen Sink Comix, 1979).
