Peter Bagge’s artwork for TAD’s controversial “Jack Pepsi” single.
Part 5: I’ve been sent back in time to Seattle in the 90s with my portfolio which contains the pages of Blammo #8! I’m walking to Fantagraphics to see if they will publish me. Guest illustration by Peter Bagge.
Here’s a treat: “The Astounding Adventures of Mastodon” comic, written by me and illustrated by Eamo. This was slated to appear in what turned out to be the final, never-published issue of Blender magazine. I hate how I was illustrated here—what’s with the blue lenses, and why do I look like a soot-covered Dickens orphan?—but the rest of it came out well.
Classic grunge era comics.

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.
