The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers: In the 21st Century and Other Follies by Gilbert Shelton with Paul Mavrides and Dave Sheridan
Hardcover – Fantagraphics Books – Jan 2023 – 136 pages
In this collection of hilarious and pollitically correct Freak Brother shorts, Freewheelin’ Franklin, Phineas, and Fat Freddy form their own band, bring home a stray container of plutoium, dare to get real by going a full day without getting stoned — and help Phineas through his pregnancy in “Phineas Gets an Abortion.” (Hey, this really is the 21st Century!)
And in our title story, the Freak Brothers venture outside for their first encounter with the wonders of the 21st Century on a mission to score a little weed. (“Still illegal?”)
Plus: Fat Freddy’s Cat stars in two solo adventures, including a visit to “Cat heaven.” Fat Freedy himself stars in a bonanza of satirical sketches skewering such targets as Star Wars, G. I. Joe, and Superman.
(Oh, did we say “politically correct”? Just kidding!)
