Throughout the 1990s, Peter Bagge's award-winning comic book series Hate chronicled and ridiculed the life and times of young slacker Buddy Bradley as well as the zeitgeist of Gen. X/slacker culture. Now collected into six stand-alone "Buddy" volumes, readers can enjoy the timeless quality of Bagge's humor -- his dialogue and characterization remains unparalleled in comics, and Matt Groening's Simpsons owe a clear debt to Bagge's extended Bradley family.
