Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - George Galuschak
If an American city were hit by a nuclear missile, what would happen to the survivors? A) The government would step in and save them. B) The better angels of our nature would prevail, and people would band together and help each other. C) Violence and bloodshed. Perry and Gordo—two average American males—are camping out in the mountains when Seattle is hit by a North Korean nuke. The ripples of chaos spread quickly, in the form of fleeing motorists and looters ransacking convenience stores for gas and food. Perry and Gordo hole up in a log cabin; they kill the owner and join a compound made up of computer geeks (it is Seattle). Perry ends up in a women-only compound chained to a doghouse; it is here that he meets his future mate, Midge. Perry and Midge find their own little slice of paradise, hiding together in a cabin in the woods; good thing, since neither is capable of functioning in a civilized society. This latest graphic novel from Peter Bagge, the creator of the Hate series, is a purchase for adult graphic novel collections only; be warned that a goodly number of adults will be offended, also. The world of Apocalypse Nerd is dark but there is also humor, most of which comes from Bagge's art—his characters look like cartoon doodles, making the mayhem, bloodshed and double-digit body count seem like an episode of the Flintstones, or the Bugs Bunny Ring of the Nibelung episode. Apocalypse Nerd contains every possible sin you could imagine, plus a few more, and is recommended for adult graphic novel collections where the work of Peter Bagge and his contemporaries (Robert Crumb, Daniel Clowes, Charles Burns) is popular.
