    In my humble opinion, Wonder Wart-Hog and The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers would be excellent fare on Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim" and I'm willing to bet would attract a lot of media attention if they were ever published as cartoons.

    I totally agree. While there are certain things that might have to be toned down just a tad about the FFFB, even for late-night basic cable, in general Adult Swim is pushing the boundaries of TV animation in the same way underground comix were pushing the boundaries of the comic book medium in the 1970s (for better or worse). Now as then, not everything they come up with is a masterpiece, but it's interesting that it even exists, just the same. I'm a HUGE fan of The Venture Bros.

    You can, in fact, still buy some Wonder Warthog comix from his original publisher, Rip Off Press.

    I always liked the character, although at first glance it seems a poor fit with Dynamite's product line. It's quite possible Rip Off Press still has an interest (at least financially) in this character, since WWH creator Gilbert Shelton was one of the original co-founders of Rip Off Press.

    A detailed bibliography of the Hog of Steel's publishing history can be found here.
