HATE follows the foibles of the semi-autobiographical Buddy Bradley. Hate became the voice of the twenty-nothing slackers as well as being hailed by critics for its brilliant characterization in its complete chronicle of the 1990s.
In this issue: The Bradley home in Jersey is bursting at the seams with little birdies who tried out their wings, landed in a bloody heap on the ground, and limped back into the nest. The newest re-addition to the family unit: Butch. Buddy's errant little brother is discharged from the Navy, due in large part to his chronic alcoholism, and he heads straight for the nearest port - home sweet home. His constant belligerent presence makes life even more difficult for Buddy and Lisa, who are having a hard enough time of it as it is. Needless to say, things wind up coming to an ugly head between Buddy and Butch, and nothing is resolved as a result, since such is the nature of adult siblings. Now and forever, in full and glorious Fantacolor™ from cover to cover!
