More Flog! Photo Friday, this time with audio! Last night at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, moderator Gary Groth was joined by Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Woodring for a lively discussion about Robert Crumb and a range of related topics. More photos can be seen on Flickr, in regular and slideshow styles.
Plus! Download the complete audio of this event (24.5 MB MP3). It's a bit low-fi, but mostly intelligible. (We are still working on bringing you a full-fledged podcast... stay tuned for that.) We've also archived this feature on our website at this page.
Round about the time he was wrapping up work on the original Hate series, Peter Bagge sat down for a Q&A which we've dug out of our musty files to present to you, archived here on our website. This is the one where Pete finally gave up the money quote: "Yes, I am Buddy Bradley!" (If you haven't yet read the second half of the Hate saga as collected in Buddy Does Jersey, be warned: the first question leads off with a big fat spoiler.)
I liked the punk rock earnestness of this GOOD magazine essay about the coming-of-age of contemporary graphic novelists like Clowes, Bagge & Ware. You gotta love anyone who can work Chris Ware, Dan Clowes, Charles Peterson, Estrus Records, Hate, Love & Rockets, Oui, Jasper Johns, Ted Nugent, Tron and at least three liberal arts colleges into 750 words.
Hate Annual #7
By Peter Bagge
The latest installment in the increasingly eccentric life of Buddy "The Crazy Guy Who Works at the Dump" Bradley involves a war over scrap metal, of all things, when Buddy's old pal and business partner Jay takes over the auto junk yard next door to Buddy's place in an attempt to capitalize on the rising value of used steel. Watch what happens when these two former collector geeks butt heads over a filthy, noisy, heavy yet priceless commodity! Also in this issue: The final chapter (which works as a stand-alone story) of Bagge's "Bat Boy" run in the Weekly World News, and Lovey once again gets involved with a Man of Mystery whose "mystery" is of questionable taste! And as always, there are other odds and ends that round out this one-man anthology.
40-page B&W/color comic $4.95
