    Description

    Gilbert Shelton - Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers "Dope" Pin-Up Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1972). A "before and after" shot of the Freak Brothers reveals it all -- before "turning on", the hairy housemates were poster boys for scouting, the church, and the American Way of Life. Now, they're burned-out losers, but at least Fat Freddy looks happy! This incredible piece served as the back cover to Freak Brothers #2, as well as a poster that at one time could be found at every "head shop" in the country. If you're looking for the ultimate example of Freak Brothers art by Gilbert Shelton, look no further, my friend! This is the one! The art measures 13.5" x 16", with an image area of 12" x 14.75". White-out use is evident in a number of areas, and there is some very minor soiling and tack holes along the border which does not affect the image. Overall condition is Very Good.
