Peter Bagge – of Neat Stuff and Hate fame – has been a regular contributor to the Reason magazine for a decade now. Reason is a libertarian publication and Bagge came on board as a political cartoonist in 2001 which was a departure from his typical more personal. work. Everybody Is Stupid collects ten years’ worth of strips and covers such (expected) topics as war (The Right To Own A Bazooka is hilarious!), sex (Swingers Of The World Unite is informative – check out those polys!), art (“Real” Art is hard-hitting & Christian Rock is just too close for comfort), business (Malls is revealing), Boondoggles (Let’s Give All Our Money To The Rich Man is scathing), Tragedy (A Menace To Society is disturbing), politics (Fascists Have Feelings Too is downright funny) and the USA (the Nerd-ification of America is spot on!)
Something for everyone in this educational, humorous and borderline offensive tome. Communicated in Bagge’s trademarked bugged out style, this is a must-have for fans of incisive political commentary.
