One thought on “Voices from The Freak Era

  1. I’m trying to track down the members of Catfish Studio. From what (little) I’ve read, it was a collective of artists who worked in various types of media, from comic books to film. They were active in 1970, though perhaps even earlier than that. If anyone has any information, I’d really appreciate it.
