Peter Bagge's style moves to a fluid beat, incorporating elastic design with over-the-top characterizations and brutally honest portrayals of suburban and domestic landscapes. The ever-present humor and slick signature gags effortlessly poke fun at both the reader and his subjects, while at the same time coating the darker matter and message of his social commentaries. The best comedians make fun of us, but most people never know it...so it is with Peter's stories and characters: there might be a rubber tip covering the syringe, but the prick is still there. Rarely matched by any other artist of his generation for this blend of humor, socio/polito viewpoints and cartooning bravado, Peter continues to spread his brand of graphic expression while maintaining the core style and evolving ideologies true to his game. 
   

Beginning in the mid to late '70s after dabbling with art school and then making a clean escape, Peter began working at Punk Magazine. This connection to the music scene and its environs is a lifelong theme that would continually play itself in the various guises of fan, writer, artist and musician. By the early '80s he made his mark in the comics world, co-publishing Comical Funnies and creating The Bradleys! Soon after, his work was published in R. Crumb's Weirdo magazine, featuring the character Martini Baton...Peter would later become the managing editor from 1983-1986. 

In 1985 he began working with Fantagraphics Books and produced Neat Stuff for a total of 15 issues. It was here that some of his most enduring characters were developed: Girly-Girl, Junior, Studs Kirby, The Bradleys, and lastly the standard bearer of all disillusioned '80s teenagers, Buddy Bradley! Buddy's evolution would continue in Bagge's landmark comic Hate beginning in 1990, running for 30 issues and which still gets published in Annual form today.
