Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ever since Bagge ended his popular Hate series in 1998, he’s been largely concentrating on book-length works, such as Apocalypse Nerd (2008) and Other Lives (2010). Concurrently, he’s been churning out hilarious shorter pieces for magazines, alternative newspapers, and other venues, many of which (as well as some Hate backup strips) are collected here. The pleasing hodgepodge includes multipart sequences featuring Bagge creations like hipster wannabe Lovey and clueless suburbanites Chet and Bunny Leeway (resurrected from Bagge’s 1980s series, Neat Stuff); Bagge-scripted stories drawn by other alt-comics titans, including R. Crumb, Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, and Gilbert and Jamie Hernandez as well as a story scripted by Alan Moore; graphic reportage and “real-life” biographies of obscure scientists; and “Musical Urban Legends,” ranging from a belligerent Frank Sinatra to a sweetly befuddled Brian Wilson. While his rubbery, exaggerated visual style may be one-note (as effective and appealing as that single note might be), this diverse assortment of work, nearly all of it top-notch, shows that Bagge has plenty of arrows in his artistic quiver. --Gordon Flagg

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding and diverse collection of Peter Bagge's work from the last 15 years or so which was published by various magazines around the country. Some of the material is from the back pages of Bagge's "Hate" comic so if you get that regularly you will be familiar with that stuff. If you are a fan you already love these Bagge collections because much of it is from source material which most of us never read or can't find. This book is definitely for people who are already familiar with Bagge's work because it has very few ongoing characters. For me, the best parts of the book are the "Lovey" stories, "Musical Urban Legends," "The Shut-Ins," and "Rock & Roll Dad." The book also has an extensive section of work Bagge has done with other indy comic legends.

If you are not familiar with him, allow me to introduce Mr. Bagge. Peter Bagge is an outstanding writer and a worthy chronicler of the American Experience, especially in the 90s and the Naughts. I believe Bagge is in the same literary class as people like Mark Twain, Bill Watterson and Jean Shepherd because of his ability to translate daily observations into humorous stories. Bagge is a particularly precise writer of natural sounding dialogue which enhances his storytelling ability greatly. His extremely distinct drawing style is easily recognized and unique. He claims inspiration from Tex Avery and is truly one of his spiritual successors as is so obvious in his artistic output.

Bagge is also an early innovator in the alternative comics scene populated by creators like Robert Crumb, Dan Clowes, and Los Bros Hernandez, all of whom are contributors in this collection. His characters are sometimes shockingly stark and obscene, but his work is never inappropriate and always funny.

What can I say about Peter Bagge? He's always funny, his art is always surprising and wonderfully exaggerated. I have most of what he's published and I love it all.

Some interesting rarities --- but where's the other missing links like the Starhead minis or those disgusting Neat Stuff stories? Album covers? other 80's zines? With some of that and a little less "Lovey" this would have been a classic but as it is its still fairly worthwhile, espiecally for the Alan Moore Kool-Aid story and the poignant one pager of buddy's girlfriends.

PS If anybody from Fantagraphics is reading this why are backup stories from Hate annual being reprinted but you can't purchase the front stories of H.Annual 2 and 3 in any format?
