Brussels has been home to another new gallery since April. Comic Art Factory is diving into the growing market of original comic strip art.
For its second sale exhibition, it is bringing the psychedelic, marijuana-enveloped work of Gilbert Shelton to Brussels. These days, the icon of the American underground comix movement has been keeping a cottage garden in France, but fifty years ago, in the blessed month of May 1968, he launched his best-known series: The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, which is about the wacky adventures of a trio of hairy stoners who are hopped up on hallucinogens and eating kicks. Get your freak on!
