About the Author:

Gilbert Shelton, born in Dallas in 1940. At university in Austin he became editor of the student magazine, The Texas Ranger. This was to prove Shelton’s last ‘real job’. For in 1967, after contributing to various underground comix with his earliest character, Wonder Wart-Hog, and designing posters for rock concerts, Shelton created The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. In 1969 he and some friends from Texas moved to San Francisco to set up Rip Off Press from where Freak Brothers strips were soon syndicated, borrowed (or stolen!) by a host of American underground newspapers and magazines. The first collection was published in 1971 and has since been joined by thirteen further Freak Brothers adventures. Fat Freddy’s Cat, the feline world’s number one cat, started out as a footnote strip to the Freak Brothers but has led an independent – and very successful – life since 1975. In 1993 Shelton introduced new characters, Not Quite Dead, the world’s least successful Rock Band who have since appeared in a series of comics of their own. Now 50 years later and unlike many cults from the sixties which have faded away, The Freak Brothers are still going from strength to strength. They are published in 15 languages and worldwide sales are now over 40 million copies plus millions of items of merchandise, T-shirts, postcards, badges, posters and more. Shelton currently lives in Paris, France with his wife and three cats.

From Publishers Weekly:

First rearing its shaggy head during the thick of the psychedelic era, Sheltons classic series could be cited as the Big Bang of stoner humor as we now understand the genre, predating Cheech & Chong's THC-based antics and stoner humor in general by a few years. Differing from much of the mean-spirited material found in the nascent underground genre by being legitimately funny, the Freak Brothers slacked their way from one misadventure to another, getting ripped off by dealers, avoiding work and staying as completely stoned as possible. Fat Freddy, Phineas and Freewheelin Franklins existence reads like a pothead sitcom, the characters world defined first in a series of short stories, and longer, even epic tales allow Shelton to run wild as the gags fly fast and furious. This massive 40th anniversary omnibus edition collects the entirety of the series, and as Shelton so famously observed, Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope, so in these financially uncertain times its a downright steal for its price.
