About Gilbert Shelton Born in Dallas in 1940, Gilbert Shelton’s unlikely first venture into the world of comic art was doing strips for Boy Scout publications when he was in the Explorer Scouts at school. This was to prove Shelton’s last ‘real job’.

All the freak brothers comix in one big lavish volume. If you are or ever were a Freak Brothers fan, look no further than this huge graphic novel. Never fear fat freddy's cat fans, he is included in this volume and just as funny as I remembered. What makes this so special,(to me at least) is the fact that these comics have been hard to come by and sorely missed. This tome is as thick as an old fashioned phone book and has ALL the adventures of our drugged out hippie trio.

Gilbert Shelton's . are timeless clowns," writes The Guardian. It's the basic forms of humour at the heart of his tripped-out cartoons - from slapstick to silly punchlines - which have kept them fresh and mirthful for forty years. Or: "Gilbert Shelton is near as comics have come to producing a natural comedic genius of the same stature as a Chaplin or a Tati," says Alan Moore, but then that is one massive fucking spliff in his hand

Reviews about The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Omnibus (7):

All the memories that had been previously washed away by bong water. We bought these comics as they came out in the 70's at the local head shop. Our collection eventually burned in our old chicken coop based "Fort" in northern WI along with all our nudie mags and Sabbath albums. Imagine my juvenile burnout joy when I found this incredible collection on Amazon! It contains EVERYTHING I barely remember, plus more...even Fat Feddy's Cat strips at the bottom of the pages. Get out your reading classes and Geritol and enjoy this incredible flashback to better days.

What a great book. All the freak brothers comix in one big lavish volume.If you are or ever were a Freak Brothers fan, look no further than this huge graphic novel. Never fear fat freddy's cat fans, he is included in this volume and just as funny as I remembered. What makes this so special,(to me at least) is the fact that these comics have been hard to come by and sorely missed. Not just for the gut busting hialrity they provide, at the antics this trio and thier cat get up to but that they bring me right back to the days, when I first picked up thier comics,in the 70's. It has 624 pages total and two sections in full color, on coated stock paper. The other pages are in black and white. There is a removable dust jacket which has a different illustration than the book cover(a coated stock paperback type cover)which is a nice touch.The only thing I would have done differently is to have the cover of each issue and then follow with that issues original stories in order.The way they set it up I'm not sure what order it is in. This may be nit picking but remember, I had the original issues.I highly recommend this.You will not be disappointed.

I've always been a fan of Gilbert Sheldon's Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers since the early 70s, having to hide the comics from my parents for years. This tome is as thick as an old fashioned phone book and has ALL the adventures of our drugged out hippie trio. BUT one complaint I do have is some of the printing is hard to read cause its now smaller than the original comic release, you literally need a magnifying glass to read, especially with the Fat Freddy's Cat strips at the bottom.

The one thing I do ask, they have a page of the alledged stop action film that was made in 2000, WHERE IS THIS FILM?? Not even IMDB has info on it!!

I'm deducting a star for the difficult to read printing on some of the pages, otherwise I love it!

I am of a generation who came of age during the underground comics heyday and stoner humor like the Freak Brothers cracked me up in those halcyon days of my youth.
So, to take a walk down memory lane, I bought this book from one of the third party sellers and was not disappointed. It's a big heavy well made book with B&W and some color adventures of Fat Freddie, Phineas, and Freewheelin' Frank.
Still got a laugh from some of those long-forgotten comics that brought back pleasant memories.

Just a tad smaller than a standard comic book size, but wonderful printing and good over all readability. A bargain - complete - it's 624 pages FCS ! :-) To get ALL the R Crumb stuff in reprint you'd have to spend hundreds (and I like Shelton lots better anyway).

I bought this as a nostalgia gift for my husband because he had fond memories of the comics from his younger hippie days. Unfortunately, we now live in a state where pot is illegal and he said it just reminds him of how much he wishes we were still living in Colorado.

Great memories from the hippie era- light one up and enjoy! (Thought by now all of Nixon's hypocritical & ignorant stance on marijuana and the politically driven drug war would be a thing of the past )- Instead Sessions & Trump are just as stupid,and refuse to recognize the benefits of cannabis & want to imprison people who don't agree with them politically. In other words, the U.S. Govt. has not learned ANYTHING in 50 more years.(But they did take out a patent in 2003 to use cannabis as medicine.)
It's great that it's still funny; and sad that just as in some of the strips we still have govt. spying, corporate control of govt.,.. the morals police aren't quite as bad perhaps. Takes a long time for things to improve... I'm trying to outlive people like Cheney, the Koch brothers and their ilk... and until then laughing with aid of the Freaks.
