It’s Mother’s Day (Hi Mom!) and as such I thought I’d profile the gold standard for motherhood (in popularity anyway) from the world of top-tier alternative comics, Ms. Lisa Leavenworth Bradley. Lisa is the key female character of Peter Bagge’s hilarious, hits-way-to-close-to-home Hate comics. The original, Generation X defining Hate series ended in 1998 with issue 30. Still, the adventures of Lisa and her hubby Buddy (a formerly grunged-out Seattle slacker turned responsible father to their son Harold) continue in the pages of the Hate Annuals, including the recently released 8th issue.
