“My Pad (Revisited)” brings the core cast together for the last black-and-white issue of the series. Valerie plans to move in with Buddy and Lisa, but Buddy has already promised the room to Stinky. George returns as well, leading to lots of screaming and shouting. “Return to Hate Island!” is the sequel to the backup story found in issue #1. Hate #15 is the end of an era. Buddy leaves Seattle, and the series would never again be quite as sick or as twisted (or as good).
