Thoroughly Ripped with the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

by Gilbert Shelton

We did two Shelton books for Har van Fulpen's Uitgeverij Drukwerk, this one and Fat Freddy's Cat.

The Freak Brothers are shiftless stoners, whose motto is "dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope," and their adventures all pretty much follow revolve around two basic plotlines: either they have a stash of pot and smoke it and do silly things while buzzed, or they're out of pot and do silly things in order to get some more. True-to-life stores of the fabulous furry '60s, in other words....

Unlike FFC and Mr. Snoid, the Freak Brothers volume was printed in glorious full color.
