Overview

This graphic novel follows aging, onetime slacker Buddy Bradley (from the seminal alternative comics series Hate); it has an all-new, 20-page conclusion.
In this graphic novel, he’s back! Now in his 30s and married, with a child, onetime slacker hero Buddy Bradley shaves his head, dons an eye-patch, quits his “real” job and buys the local dump — because what better place to raise a toddler? Peter Bagge’s iconic character is to alternative comics what Homer Simpson has been to television animation over the past quarter-century: a generation-defining slacker and the greatest comedic character of its form and era. Featuring stories originally published in the comic book series Hate Annual from 2000-2011, as well as an all-new 20-page conclusion to the story arc, this book marks the first new book of Buddy stories since the now-perennial classics Buddy Does Seattle (2005) and Buddy Does Jersey (2007).

Editorial Reviews

Jeremy Nisen - Under the Radar
“...[Buddy Buys a Dump] captures a stage of life -- the onset of adulthood -- as well as or better than the original [Hate] comics captured being young and dysfunctional in the days of grunge. It's an honest progression that remains funny, sharp, ridiculous, and expertly cartooned.”
Luke Geddes - The Comics Journal
“As a writer, Bagge rivals the showrunners of prestige cable dramas in his capacity for sharp, character-revealing gestures. His characters' behavior often surprises but never strikes a bum note.”
Chris Auman - Sound on Sight
“...I am not, nor will I ever be like Buddy Bradley. I certainly know the type, however, and therein lies the appeal of Buddy as a main character. The revolving cast of nut jobs that Buddy attracts to himself, and is attracted by, doesn’t hurt the appeal or comic potential either, nor does the sharp wit, great dialogue and Bagge's unique style of rubbery, quavering limbs, popping eyes and massive pie holes shouting and swearing off the pages.”
