    Hell yes! I used to read these when I was about 15 / 16. They were a bit before my time, but my step dad owned them all. Long time since I've come across them though, nice to be reminded :)

    Gilbert Sheldon (artist and creator of Freak bro's) is a fucking genius. Sometimes just a tiny background detail would leave you ROFL... Remember "Wonder-Warthog" Hog of steel?

    I'm pretty sure both they and Mr N lived just down the block when I lived in the Haight and Dr. Atomic was in our commune. I was the real life basis of Doc's Dealrt McDope. LOL

    What can I say? Larry Todd in who's Dr. Atomic comic Dealer McDope first appeared was hanging out ar our place working on the design for his Proto Pipe that year. Later when we were busted for pot (100Ks) the newspapers declared us to be the biggest wholesale dealers in San Francisco. (Little did rhey know! lol)

    Of course! I loved the Furry Freak Brothers comics. I recently bought a compendium just for fun, and it turns out that my 12 year old son really likes them too! Wife was pissed though - why you let him see that stuff...its a bad influence!
    No its not. He'll be fine. Watching the news is a bad influence - that shit is really happening. These guys are just cartoon stoners.

    I heard last year that someone is planning to make a film of the Furry Freak Bros.
    That is just not going to work is it?
