one hilarious piece, a very earnest convention of polygamists, swingers, sadomasochists and transsexuals, where a panel discussion on legal issues inspired a rather dumpy woman to ask this question: "If I adopt my live-in lovers, would I be violating incest laws?"...


Peter Bagge in the Washington Post

Today's Washington Post profiles Peter Bagge, best known as the creator of HATE!, a genre-defining comic book that perfectly portrayed the 1990s slacker mindset (and helped many of us laugh at ourselves). The Post doesn't even mention HATE! though, as this piece is about Bagge's current gig writing the strips for libertarian political mag Reason. From the Washington Post:
 Wp-Dyn Content Photo 2007 07 23 Ph2007072301829 "I call it cartoon journalism," Bagge, 49, said in a phone interview from his home in Seattle. "I don't know what else to call it."

Over the past six years, Bagge has covered political campaigns, protest marches and, in one hilarious piece, a very earnest convention of polygamists, swingers, sadomasochists and transsexuals, where a panel discussion on legal issues inspired a rather dumpy woman to ask this question: "If I adopt my live-in lovers, would I be violating incest laws?"...

In the current Reason, the one with his hideous self-portrait on the cover, Bagge travels to a gun show, interviews people on both sides of the gun control issue and ultimately concludes that, yes, an American should be able to own a bazooka: "If I don't hurt, threaten or disturb anyone with it, then why can't I own one?"
