This book is one of four books that collect Peter Bagge's early comics from the late 1980s comic book magazine "Neat Stuff". The Four books are: 1) "The Bradleys", 2) "Studs Kirby", 3) "Junior and Other Losers" and 4) "Stupid Comics. They're all recommended. The stories in this book about Buddy Bradley's early life are not reprinted in the the two collections "Buddy Does Seattle" and "Buddy Does Jersey", so you'll need this volume to get all the major Buddy stories.
Fine satire on a middle class family in 1980's America. This is not crass underground stuff. It is neat stuff. It was a different world when cd's were beginning to infringe upon vinyl, home computers and mobile phones(which were HUGE) were VERY expensive and thusly rare; and dvd's were nonexistent. Excellent P.Bagge laughs in this comic material.
The Bradleys For all fans of Peter Bagge's comics, this book is a must-have. It is the first comic stories written about Buddy Bradley and his family. You get to see Butch and Babs as kids. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes underground comics and particularly the later comic anthologies "Buddy Does Seattle," and "Buddy Does Jersey."
