These legendary stories, from the classic first fifteen issues of Bagge's Hate comic, are a defining icon of Seattle's early 1990s culture (the Seattle Weekly has written, "20 years from now, when people wonder what it was like to be young in 1990s Seattle, the only record we'll have is Hate."), as well as Generation X in general (as seen in such films as Kids and Pecker). This is the first time these hilarious stories, starring the hapless Buddy Bradley and his cast of loser cohorts, have ever been available under one cover, and never have they been available at such a low price (it would have cost at least three times as much to read all of these classic stories in any previous editions). Bagge's riotous tales of the early 1990s subculture are more hilarious now than ever, find out why he has been praised by R. Crumb, Matt Groening, John Kricfalusi, Publishers Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and many more. Comedy genius.

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.
