Home / Store / Books / Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers: Grass Roots and Other Follies
by Paul Mavrides, Gilbert Shelton and Dave Sheridan
Published by Fantagraphics Books
10.6"x8.3", 160p, full-color, die-cut cover, hardcover
The third release in the Freak Brothers Follies series follows the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers back to their hippie origins!
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brother, Freewheelin’ Franklin, Phineas, and Fat Freddy, score some sinsemilla from a country cousin, start a softball league to score free drinks, adopt a possessed parakeet that outwits the D.E.A., and inadvertently take in a couple of undercover cops as housemates! The title story collects an epic that ran for over six months in newspapers, in which the Brothers, evicted from their apartment, move to the country to get back to nature, only to discover that nature doesn’t want them! Meanwhile, Fat Freddy’s Cat adapts much more readily to outdoor living. Then, in a bonus tale, the cat leads the way in the accidental animal rights adventure, “Animal Camp.”
Grass Roots and Other Follies is the third release in this special series of seven volumes compiling the complete Freak Brothers comic adventures. The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comics have sold more than 45 million copies worldwide in 16 languages, and these painstakingly restored hardcovers are the first North American bookshelf editions in more than thirty years.
