    When I was a kid my mother bought a stack of comics at a garage sale. Little did she know that within that stack were several issues of the The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. Since then I've been a fan. Unfortunately, I haven't seen a new issue or any older issues. Does anybody else remember the Freak Brothers?

    northernsun.com is now printing Crumb t-shirts. I just bought the "keep on truckin" t.
    I'm not sure they have the Freak Bros., but I do know they've got Mr. Natural.

    prob lots of people do, especially older folk
    one great thing about being around these days is the internet, one can find anything here and it's funny to me when people ask 'how do you find...' from a computer... google is all about keywords. so try 'underground comix'
    FFF Bros are an all time favorite of mine however when talking about underground comics mentioning FFF Bros is like mentioning the Beach Boys to surf music. There soooo much more.
    Fat Freddies cat got lots of his own issues

    Other key words to google would be Apex and Zap. Zap was all R. Crumb and FFF Bros stuff at first and then included Mr. Natural and others.

    They're awesome! Gilbert Shelton stopped writing Freak Bros comics about 20 years ago after publishing a dozen or so. I've read all of them and in fact I have the board game Feds n Heads which was published in a 1971 edition of Playboy.

    I sure remember them-that takes me back to my early hippy days, when the magazine was still being published-wow, that was a long time ago :(

    I remember the Freak Brothers comics from when I was in high school. The hippie era was already dead by then and disco and punk were in. These comics were usually sold in head shops and for some reason were still popular with kids who considered hippies to be totally passé by then.

    They probably thought of the Freak Bros as stoners rather than hippies.

    By the time I was a teenager in high school, even most of the stoners had cut their hair and no longer related to hippies.
    I loved these comics since they were a lot of fun to read and reminded me of another era that was before my time. I started to collect underground newspapers at that time too which often contained Freak Brothers and similar comics.
