The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers were created by Gilbert Shelton, one of the greatest American underground cartoonists. The Freak Brothers are timeless clowns, and it's Shelton's mastery of satire and slapstick, silly punchlines and the traditional forms of humour at the heart of these tripped put cartoons that have kept them fresh and mirthful for over 45 years. Unlike many cults from the Sixties which have since faded away, the Freak Brothers are still going from strength to strength and aquiring new fans. They are published in 15 languages and worldwide sales are now over 40 million copies plus millions of items of merchandise.
