Overview

These legendary stories from Hate #1-15 are a defining icon of Seattle's early 1990s culture, as well as Generation X in general. Bagge's riotous tales of the early 1990s subculture are more hilarious now than ever.
These legendary stories, from the classic first fifteen issues of Bagge's Hate comic, are a defining icon of Seattle's early 1990s culture (the Seattle Weekly has written, "20 years from now, when people wonder what it was like to be young in 1990s Seattle, the only record we'll have is Hate."), as well as Generation X in general (as seen in such films as Kids and Pecker). This is the first time these hilarious stories, starring the hapless Buddy Bradley and his cast of loser cohorts, have ever been available under one cover, and never have they been available at such a low price (it would have cost at least three times as much to read all of these classic stories in any previous editions). Bagge's riotous tales of the early 1990s subculture are more hilarious now than ever, find out why he has been praised by R. Crumb, Matt Groening, John Kricfalusi, Publishers Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and many more. Comedy genius.

Editorial Reviews

The Village Voice
“Devastatingly accurate.”
Maximum Rock N Roll
“Sheer genius.”
Entertainment Weekly
“Mixes the Ramones, Stranger Than Paradise, and the Three Stooges.”
R. Crumb
“I can count on one hand the number of comic artists whose work is as strong... maybe on two or three fingers... It's a laff riot, what can I tell ya?”
John Kricfalusi
“Peter Bagge is the funniest cartoonist in existence. Part of the secret of his humor comes from our shock at seeing people act the way people really do, rather than this whitewashed portrayal of so-called average people that we see in modern television and movies. The situations Peter creates for his characters are gripping, hilarious and bitingly honest. His drawing style is completely original and would be funny on its own, even without his great stories. This kind of perfect blend of art and humor is what we are all striving for.”
Phil Guie - CriticalMob
“First published when Seattle was exploding in popularity due to the rise of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and various grunge bands, Hate offered a decidedly un­-romanticized take on a particular time and place.... As a work of cultural commentary it's brash and invigorating, and remains so years later.”
John Hodgman
… Buddy is more than a cultural artifact. Bagge's art is lovingly cartoony -- there's a lot of early Mad magazine and Al Jaffee at work here. No anger is unaccompanied by bold hate lines above Buddy's head, no lust without big googly eyes. Buddy's rubber-band body twists to accommodate his rapid shifts from rage to contempt to contrition to surprising empathy. When he starts managing a band to unexpected success, you sense, as he does, that there's something in him that could lift him up out of this world, above his variously damaged and sometimes terminally lazy friends. But time and again he chooses not to, and he's clearly relieved when the band drunkenly fires him. It's as if Clark Kent realized it's pretty lonely up, up in the sky and decided to just stay on earth.
— The New York Times
