Reread this on January 18th, 2016, but goodreads doesn't have a way to mark multiple completion times, so I guess this won't count towards my 2016 reading. This volume is not quite as good as the previous volume, but that may just be my being used to the style, so it doesn't seem quite as shocking. It's still got the bizarre, rubbery art style, with the distortion of bodies and faces used to convey extremes of emotion. It's still darkly funny, with a thorough-going disgust aimed at pretty much e ...more

"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. Why would anyone want to go back to Seattle? Buddy and Lisa extend the vacation indefinitely and move i ...more

"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. "Hate" follows Buddy's twenties, as he leaves his New Jersey hometown for Seattle, lives a rock 'n' roll life, then meets a woman named Lisa, with whom he returns to Jersey.

The art is exaggerated comic art, where people's eyes pop out when they're surprised. When they curse, typing symbols ($#%&*@%!) fly from their mouths. It adds an element o

I should bump this one up a star. The 'Hate' series really doesn't change much after Peter Bagge switches to color and Buddy moves back to New Jersey. It's still as good as always in terms of the characters and the great u-shaped mouth 'scream' panels. I read all of these books in my early 20's, so all of the later stuff seemed really depressing at the time, but I've grown to like it more as time goes on and you realize that you can never really escape your family.

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
