I've lost count of the number of times I've read the Freak Brothers cartoons. They were a favourite of mine when I was a hippy student. But reading them again now as a 33 year old "straight" non-drug-using IT Manager, I still find them great fun and very engrossing.
The Freak Brothers are 3 hippies who spend their lives doing drugs and getting into ridiculous adventures. For example: moving to the country on cocaine earnings, starting a gold rush, and ending up running the town; going to Mexico, getting locked up on false charges and meeting a great Mexican mystic; going into the movie business; trying to sell on radioactive material; etc... etc...
Each story lasts from one page to a whole comic length. The plots are wonderful, and full of little twists and turns. The 3 characters are distinct and hilarious, the "straight man" Freewheelin' Frank, the "stupid one" Fat Freddy, and the "geek" Phineas.
The cartoons are, of course, fantasy. Any real human beings doing the amount and variety of drugs that the Freak Brothers do, or living their lifestyle, would have been dead or totally insane within a decade of starting! (And certainly addicted with a few years...)
Although these are chaotic hippy comix in one sense, they are very ordered in another sense. They use standard but detailed cartoony art which is lovely to look at, easy to follow "non-surreal" plots - the skills of the writer and artist are great. It is these skills that really make the comics timeless, not their super-hippy nature. The drugs and "drop out" elements really serve as a fantasy-enabler, helping the Freak Brothers to do and get into the most amazing situations.
These are highly recommended for chaotic comedy comic reading. BUT, if you are a student, don't let these stories sway you into believing you can do loads of drugs with impunity!
