Freak Brothers


Freak Brother Fat Freddy had a cat. The cat was featured in most of the Freak Brothers comic books from the '70s. The cat was really popular, so Gilbert Shelton and Rip Off Press put him in his own comic book. Shelton, perhaps the funniest writer in the underground, is very funny in this series, which spanned over fifteen years but only seven issues. The series was quite successful, going through many reprintings, and many of the cartoons here are still fresh and laugh-out-loud funny today.
There are six printings of this comic book, all printed by Rip Off Press. It is currently unknown how many copies were printed of any edition. The first three printings are 5.25x8.25 inches big. The 1st printing has a $1.00 cover price. The 2nd printing has a $1.25 cover price. The 3rd printing has a $1.50 cover price. The 4th printing has a $2.00 cover price and the comic was enlarged to 6 5/8 x 10 1/8 inches. The 5th printing has a $2.95 cover price. The 6th printing has a $3.25 cover price.
