If you're looking for an easy way to get into heaven, by all means do NOT read this hilarious, subversively clever, comic-filled book!
The second collection of Berkeley Mews comics by Ben Zaehringer, this book satirizes many of the pop cultural institutions familiar to children of the '80s and '90s, providing a visually delightful and comically poignant send-up of modern life.
Filled with flawed views of Santa Claus, hilarious takedowns of Disney movie tropes, and dozens of comics that landed on the front page of Reddit, How Not to Get into Heaven is an uplifting read for comics fans with a slightly twisted sense of humor.
Berkeley Mews' appealing, accessible art style belies a cartoon world of dark humor, dry wit, and irreverent reimaginings of popular culture. In Berkeley Mews, bad things happen to good people, good things happen to bad people, and everything usually ends in disappointment or death. Satisfaction guaranteed! A subversive, hilarious, dark-but-uplifting collection of comics skewering the commercial figures, Disney stories, and pop cultural touchstones that Millennials and Gen X-ers grew up with in the '80s and '90s. Ben Zaehringer's versatile art styles and wicked curveballs are sharp, clever and accessible, prompting many readers to comment that the author is "ruining their childhood" in the most delightful way possible.
