    You couldn't do this on Friday?

    Good morning reason!

    Nuh uh. Fool me once...

  • Fiscal Meth||

    Ughh. Twice...Shame on me!

  • ||

    Am I the only one who never heard of this chick until Bagge's comic?

  • Some Guy||

    No. And that's a great pity.

  • ||

    Maybe. I've known about her for decades. Any well-read libertarian should have atleast heard of her. The 3 women of early libertarianism are Rand, IMP, and Rose Wilder Lane.

  • DBN||

    The tragedy is that I'm sure she was a much more interesting person than this series makes her out to be. She's starting to come accross like Carrie Bradshaw in a frumpy hat.

  • ||

    You've known about her for decades? Can you name the books that she wrote that you've read without looking her up on the Net?

  • ||

    So, in this thread we have posters who've never heard of either Isabel Paterson nor Peter Bagge.

    How did these people even find their way here?

    Funny story, there is a halfway house that has a website with a very similar spelling.

    Doesn't this cartoonist also publish for MAD magazine?

  • ||

    Probably -- it's been a couple of years since I've looked through MAD. I think I've seen him there.

    P-Bagg made his name back in the 80s doing alt/underground stuff.

  • -||

    Seems rather undergroundish still.

    Do you know how to use Google?

    Peter Bagge is an extremely well known, influential, and well regarded cartoonist. He is best known for his 90s comic book Hate; which chronicled the adventures of a character named Buddy Bradley.

    But he's done a whole lot, and has been a high profile contributor to fucking Reason magazine for years.

  • ||

    Peter Bagge goes back further than the 80s. He was right there along with Gilbert Shelton, Robert Crumb, and Spain in the underground comics arena of the 1960s.

  • ||

    Well, the 70s or 80s I guess, around the time of Crumb's magazine Weirdo.

  • ||

    Weirdo started in the early 80s. Bagge was associated with the underground zine Punk in NYC back in late 70s, at the earliest. I think he was editor of Punk for a bit, too. He ended up being the editor of Weirdo after Crumb.

    This is a great series. I've never heard of Paterson either.
