An archival collection of one of the bestselling alternative comic book series — arguably, the Great American Grunge novel — complete for the first time. Peter Bagge combined his signature cartoony drawing style with uncomfortably real Gen X characters, and created a series that resonated deeply with readers. The Complete Hate is a three-volume set that includes the original 1990-1998 30-issue run, the nine subsequent Hate Annuals, and tons of other Hate-related comics, illustrations, and ephemera created for books, magazines, comics, toys, and other merchandise.

Peter Bagge is an American alternative cartoonist whose best-known work includes the comics Hate and Neat Stuff. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he got his start in comics in the R. Crumb-edited magazine Weirdo. His stories often use black humor and exaggerated cartooning to dramatize the reduced expectations of middle-class American youth. More recently he has written and drawn graphic biographies of Zora Neale Hurston, Rose Wilder Lane, and Margaret Sanger, all published by Drawn and Quarterly. He won two Harvey Awards in 1991, one for best cartoonist and one for his work on Hate, was presented with an Inkpot Award at San Diego Comic-Con International in 2010, and was named a Rockefeller Fellow for Literature in 2014.

Dana Gould is a legendary writer, actor and stand-up comedian. Gould is best known for his many years on The Simpsons, where he served as Co-Executive Producer and performed several voices. As an actor, Dana has had memorable turns on Seinfeld, Parks and Recreation and was a cast member of Frank Darabont’s 1940’s crime drama Mob City, as well as numerous roles in films, such as the cult horror anthology Southbound. Dana was the creator and Executive Producer of the IFC horror-comedy Stan Against Evil. His monthly podcast, The Dana Gould Hour, frequently resides in iTunes’ top ten comedy downloads.
