    FABULOUS FURRY FREAK BROTHERS #1. Gilbert Shelton. 1971.
    (12th printing). Rip Off Press.


    The best-selling underground comix title was not the better-known Zap or Mr. Natural but Gilbert Shelton’s Furry Freak Brothers, the hirsute zonked out trio many of us thought was the counterculture’s answer to the Marx Brothers. This fat (64 pages) first Freak Brothers collection, like its sequels, was reprinted over and over and over, very early on passing one million copies in print.

    The brothers were Freewheelin’ Frank, Phineas, and Fat Freddy. Shelton, who got his professional start in Harvey Kurtzman’s Help! Magazine in the early 60s) was consistently funny, never politically correct, and an amazing draftsman. Early Freak Brothers printings are hard to find because copies were passed around dorm rooms, communes, and pads over and over till they fell apart.

    This is a 12th printing (75 cent cover price and regular newsprint guts). Very close to like new. $18
