The Best of Wonder Wart-Hog

Gilbert Shelton
Gilbert Shelton

LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! IT’S A BLIRD! IT’S A PANE! IT’S A PIRD! IT’S A BLANE! IT’S A PLIRD! IT’S A BANE! ACTUALLY TO BE PRECISE IT SEEMS TO BE SOME SORT OF FLYING, ANTHROPO-MORPHIC phacochoerus aethiopicus, wearing a skin-tight red and green costume…….


Gilbert Shelton is the creator of the multi-million selling Freak Brothers and Fat Freddy's Cat comics. Wonder Wart-Hog was his earliest creation, dating from 1962 and still ap-pearing in Zap Comix to this day. Possibly his favourite char-acter, Wonder Wart-Hog has appeared over the years in publi-cations varying from Bacchanal, Help and Drag Cartoons, to underground comics such as H-Bomb Funnies, Feds ’n’ Heads and Rip Off Comix as well as in several long comic sto-ries of his own, including The Nurds of November and Battle of the Titans. Over the years there have been T-shirts, patch-es, badges, postcards and there is even a Wonder Wart-Hog motocross team!!


Wonder Wart-Hog himself, is an 8 foot tall 800 pound humanoid wart-hog. In his everyday life he is mild-mannered and slightly built reporter Philbert Desanex whom the Hog of Steel becomes by squeezing himself into a 5 foot 7 inch Philbert suit, or at least that seems to be the case most of the time. At others they are two separate entities with Wonder Wart-Hog from time to time commenting on Desanex’s life from his stomach. Whatever the case may be, when the need is called for Wonder Wart-Hog either bursts out of Philbert blowing him to bits (he puts the bits back together later) or crawls out of Philbert’s mouth, “Wow I feel great, It’s like I’ve lost 800 pounds!” The Hog of Steel then applies his universal solution to all of life’s problems… extreme vio-lence.
