If you could relive major events in your life, would you take a stab at making things better-and
would your best attempts only make things worse?
Or would you use your second chance to put your most twisted,
perverted fantasies in motion?
These are questions washed up actor and comedian
Guy Krause asks himself after he signs up to be the main
research subject for a virtual reality experiment!
This new hardcover graphic novel from Harvey Award-winning writer/artist

Stussy, Discover and other Bagge News
Hi! Here's some news:
Stussy just released a series of T shirts I designed for them, which can be seen here along with a video interview with yours truly:
I also have been doing a monthly comic strip for DISCOVER Magazine. Each strip features a famous (or not so famous) scientist of yore behaving in the quirky, asperger-y ways that scientists are renowned for (I uploaded a sample strip in the "pics" section of my MySpace page for you to marvel at: http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=55578760&albumID=685163&imageID=46252592 ).
DISCOVER originally intended to post these strips on their website, but have decided against that, hoping to entice people to subscribe to the pulp version of their wonderful mag instead. To prove that their ploy worked go here:
Meanwhile, a book collection of my REASON Magazine work (accurately titled "Everyone is Stupid Except for Me") will be coming soon from Fantagraphics, and I'm more than halfway done with a GN I'm working on for DC/Vertigo, which is taking me forever to complete. I don't have the attention span to do these stupid "graphic novels"! Bring back the "floppies," now!

- 21 December 2007
The latest installment in the increasingly eccentric life of Buddy "The Crazy Guy Who Works at the Dump" Bradley involves a war over scrap metal, of all things, when Buddy's old pal and business partner Jay takes over the auto junk yard next door to Buddy's place in an attempt to capitalize on the rising value of used steel. Watch what happens when these two former collector geeks butt heads over a filthy, noisy, heavy yet priceless commodity! Also in this issue: The final chapter (which works as a stand-alone story) of Bagge's "Bat Boy" run in the Weekly World News, and Lovey once again gets involved with a Man of Mystery whose "mystery" is of questionable taste! And as always, there are other odds and ends that round out this one-man anthology.

Fantagraphics has just released a brand new, single volume collection of the entire 2nd half of the saga of Buddy Bradley from the pages of HATE Comics under the title BUDDY DOES JERSEY. It reprints all the feature stories from HATE #s 16-30, and serves as a sequel to the the recent collection entitled BUDDY DOES SEATTLE. These stories, originally printed in full color, appear in glorious black & white for the first time, the better to show off the work of my collaborator/inker Jim Blanchard in all of its crisp clear glory!
This marvelous 352-page package also features a 2 page comic strip introduction by Johnny Ryan of ANGRY YOUTH COMICS fame, as well as an introductory explainer by yours truly. It also retails for a measly $14.95, thus making it the greatest comic book buy of the millennium! So don't delay -- order today!
Oh, and for those of you in the Greater Seattle Metropolitan Area, both Jim Blanchard and I be signing copies of BDJ and anything at the Emerald Con (held at the Events Center next to Qwest Field) today from 5 - 7 pm. Late notice, I know, but be there anyway!
