"Hate" in color??!! "Sellout!" I hear the purists cry. Whatever. The art may have taken on new hues, but the humor is just as black. In Volume IV of Peter Bagge's slacker opus, Buddy Bradley takes a vacation from Seattle, so he can introduce his girlfriend, Lisa, to his hometown hell -- the suburbs of New Jersey: mulleted cokehead neighbors, fart-lighting ceremonies, monster trucks, road rage.

"Hate" is a comic series that is very closely associated with Generation X/slackers in the 1990s. The anti-hero main character is named Buddy Bradley.

Can't stay away from this garbage.

Peter Bagge was born on December 11th, 1957, and raised in Peekskill, New York, about 40 miles north of New York City. While enrolled in the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1977, Bagge discovered underground comics, and the work of R. Crumb in particular turned what had initially been only a vague interest in cartooning into a passion.

In the early '80s Bagge co-published three issues of
