From Publishers Weekly
First rearing its shaggy head during the thick of the psychedelic era, Sheltons classic series could be cited as the Big Bang of stoner humor as we now understand the genre, predating Cheech & Chong's THC-based antics and stoner humor in general by a few years. Differing from much of the mean-spirited material found in the nascent underground genre by being legitimately funny, the Freak Brothers slacked their way from one misadventure to another, getting ripped off by dealers, avoiding work and staying as completely stoned as possible. Fat Freddy, Phineas and Freewheelin Franklins existence reads like a pothead sitcom, the characters world defined first in a series of short stories, and longer, even epic tales allow Shelton to run wild as the gags fly fast and furious. This massive 40th anniversary omnibus edition collects the entirety of the series, and as Shelton so famously observed, Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope, so in these financially uncertain times its a downright steal for its price. (Oct.)

The book is also kind of heavy! It's not like flipping through a comic.More like having a brick on your lap.
So, to take a walk down memory lane, I bought this book from one of the third party sellers and was not disappointed. It's a big heavy well made book with B&W and some color adventures of Fat Freddie, Phineas, and Freewheelin' Frank.
Still got a laugh from some of those long-forgotten comics that brought back pleasant memories.
In my opinion, this stuff is pure Americana! Gilbert Shelton (Wonder Warthog, FFFB), Bobby London (Dirty Duck), Vaughn Bodé (Cheech Wizard), R Crumb (Mr. Natural), Robert Williams (Coochy Cooty), Clay Wilson (Checkered Demon), Spain (Road Vultures Gang), Larry Todd (Dr. Atomic), & the others should all be REQUIRED reading in college.
About this book specifically - I didn't get to compare it with my copies of the actual comics, but it seemed to be a faithful, quality reproduction. I have a couple of other comic collections from this publisher and they seem do a good job with reproduction.
I'll be getting a copy for myself soon, that's fo' sho!
