Las viñetas más satíricas y políticamente comprometidas del creador de "Odio" y "Mundo Idiota"

“...[T]his collection of a decade of Peter Bagge's cartoons for Reasonmagazine is a page-turner... His investigative reports are hilarious, including his attempts to be even-handed in his coverage... This is Bagge at his best with his astute observations on society unfiltered...” – Brent Frankenhoff, Comics Buyer's Guide

Fans of Peter Bagge’s generation-defining, satirical fiction may not realize this, but the cartoonist doubles as an opinionated cuss, and has been contributing provocative (but still hilarious) comic-strip opinion pieces to Reason magazine for the last several years... collected in this volume.

Although a libertarian by inclination (hence the Reason gig), Bagge (who lives in the fuzzy-headed, liberal capital of the Northwest, Seattle) is hardly dogmatic, and many of the pieces undermine traditional party lines in favor of a rather personal, rational and informed take on hot-button issues that will force partisan Democrats and Republicans alike to rethink them. And of course, Bagge’s well-researched comic strip “essays” crackle with the same energy and wit that propelled him into the collective Gen X consciousness with his comic book series Hate.

BONUS: This new edition of the sold-out Everybody Is Stupid features an extra 32 pages of never-before-collected comics, including an epic biography of eccentric libertarian (and Ayn Rand contemporary) Isabel Mary Paterson.

Peter Bagge nació en Peekskill, Nueva York. A mediados de los 70 empezó a estudiar en la Escuela de Artes Visuales de Nueva York, pero al descubrir los cómics underground –y en particular los trabajos de Robert Crumb- se volcó en los tebeos. A principios de los 80 creó a los Bradley, una familia disfuncional cuyas historias aparecieron en tres entregas sucesivas de Comical Funnies. A continuación a Martin Baton, que vio la luz en Weirdo, la legendaria revista de cómic de Crumb de la que Bagge terminaría ejerciendo de editor entre 1983 y 1986. Entre 1985 y 1989, Fantagraphics lanzó 15 números de su siguiente proyecto, Neat Stuff, publicado en España por Ediciones La Cúpula bajo el título de Mundo idiota. De sus páginas destaca su personaje Buddy Bradley, un joven alienado y pesimista que en los 90 obtendrá su propia colección: Odio.
