Meet the Bradleys, America's most dysfunctional family: Pops, Mom, Buddy, Babs and Butch Bradley. This volume collects all of Bagge's early, explosively funny pre-Hate tales of the dysfunctional Bradley family from Neat Stuff, including "You're Not the Boss of Me!," "Merry F*cking Christmas!," and "Rock 'n' Roll Refugee." The best-selling humor cartoonist of his generation, Bagge has been hailed as one of comics' great satirists along with James Thurber, Harvey Kurtzman, and Matt Groening. The Bradleys remain his most enduring creation. Created in the 1980s while Bagge was also editing R. Crumb's Weirdo magazine, this family for the ages has its roots firmly planted in All In the Family's Bunker family and MAD magazine, with a healthy punk rock anger occasionally exploding — think of an R-rated Simpsons and you're close.
"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." – Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi
