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.
"American satirical cartooning at its most inventively hilarious." – Publishers Weekly
"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?" – R. Crumb
"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." – Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi
"Mixes The Ramones, Stranger Than Paradise, and the Three Stooges." – Entertainment Weekly
"Devastatingly accurate." – The Village Voice
"Sheer genius." – Maximum Rock N Roll
