The Residents' Freak Show Comic Book (1992)



"Freak Show actually began in the studio when one Resident was tinkering with some tracks that sounded strangely like a weird circus environment. Perhaps another was reading Katherine Dunn's Geek Love, or maybe saw the movie Freaks, as the writing continued. In any case, Freak Show evolved -- a concept album that takes place in a carny side show, each story telling the story of a different freak. This comic , inspired by the album, came about through the generous efforts of all its creators and Dark Horse comics. Fans of The Residents, each was given a copy of the album and asked to create a visual interpretation of one of the freaks. Although the process was done in reverse, the album could be a sort of "soundtrack" for this comic -- one possible interpretation of the Residents' brilliant musical story-telling". Rich Shupe
