This is the first time the entire Seattle arc from the pages of Hate has appeared under one cover. Bagge's characters are some of the most fully realised in comics - Buddy, the slacker anti-hero, Valerie, Buddy's Prozac-normalised ex, Lisa, his masochistic, worm-eating latest flame, Stinky, his selfish, venereal-warted room-mate, and George Cecil Hamilton III, the resident intellectual', who sits in his room scribbling depressive arcana into his notebook - they display their emotions so openly, so graphically that it would be rather horrifying it weren't such a riot.'

An essential alternative comic. If you like Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, the Hernandez brothers, Art Spiegleman, etc., you need to read this. However, I wouldn't recommend starting with this book. Although Buddy Does Seattle is the beginning of Bagge's popular HATE series, it is not the beginning of HATE protagonist, Buddy's, story. Bagge began Buddy's story in previous works. You can find those stories collected in The Bradleys. Unfortunately, EPL doesn't have this book, but the U of A does, so take advantage of the interlibrary loan tool. If you want to read Bagge's seminal story, front to back, I recommend reading the collection in this order: The Bradleys, Buddy Does Seattle, Buddy Does Jersey, Buddy Buys a Dump.
