Way back when, somewhere in San Francisco, Freewheelin’ Franklin Freek, Phineas T. Phreak, Fat Freddy Freekowtski, and of course, Fat Freddy’s Cat spontaneously spewed from the brain of Gilbert Shelton. The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers have been on one freakish misadventure after another, spanning the globe, space, and even time. What was the intended outcome of these mind-blowing fiascos? Obviously, they did it for fame, glamour, and sex. But mainly for the dope.
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers in the 21st Century and Other Follies is a new collection of crude comics published by Fantagraphics. Many other artists joined in this creative endeavor, originally inked by Shelton, including Paul Mavrides and Dave Sheridan. This compilation includes full stories featuring the FFFB, short strips, and adventures of Fat Freddy and his Cat. Nothing was sacrilegious to the FFFB team. Their satirical skewering of politics and pop culture is boundless. This beautiful hard-backed book is a must-have for the unfortunate few that collect FFFB comics. For anyone looking for a hilariously crude and very unPC look at stoner humor, join The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers as they explore the 21st century.
