"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 into his parents' basement (how slacker can you get?!). Only problem is Buddy and his family seriously get on each other's nerves. His passive-aggressive mother has an endless list of chores that need to be done. His father is in the hospital, convinced he's being consumed by a cancer no one can find. His sister is raising monstrous, cross-dressing, coprophiliac children. And his deeply maladjusted younger brother is also moving back home after being kicked out of the Navy for raging alcoholism. Like Buddy, Peter Bagge is returning to familiar ground in this volume. Before Buddy broke out into his own comic, he was part of the ensemble book "The Bradleys," in which Bagge explored the depressing (but hysterical) dynamic among these characters. But one of the great things about dysfunctional families is their near-infinite potential for storytelling.
