Peter Bagge "Buddy" Doll

I'm a semi-fan of Peter Bagge, "semi-" in the sense that reading Bagge is a lot like eating fudge. It's good, but I don't want a steady diet of it, either. Bagge's characters' cross of world-weary cynicism and absolute naivete can quickly get tiring... kinda as if you had a real 20-something in your life that you can't get out.

A Japanese company called Presspop is either selling or will be selling, or may just have made it for their own amusement, a Buddy Bradley doll. Even cutting Presspop some lost in translation slack, their Web site has my vote as the least informative I've read.

Bagge's artwork reminds me of the "Silly Surfers" album I had as a child. See also: "Gremmie Outta Control." Cowabunga! Remember that one, fhb?
