Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 96 (February 4-February 10) --- DOCTOR FREAK!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 96 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week will be a mini, and we’ll be focusing on…


Number of Issues: 3

Description from comicvine.gamespot.com: Crazed hippie and former Vietnam soldier. He created a super-strong version of LSD called DSC 2000.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. It goes without saying that Doctor Freak is a drug-addicted hippie. How does Doctor Freak utilize stereotypical characteristics of stoners and hippies to move the story forward? Do the stereotypes represent anything other than just Doctor Freak? Explain.
  2. Dr. Freak consistently calls his employees/dealers/workers “cats.” Why do you think he chose the word “cats” for the name of his henchmen? What does it symbolize?
  3. Why do you think Dr. Freak decided to get high instead of protecting his troop during the war?

Do you have an interest in exploring the unknown? Do you like discussing comics? Do you like pineapple on pizza? If so, The Obscurity of DC Club is the club for you! Join HERE if you’re interested!


I think he did it because he wanted to escape and that was the fastest way to do it.


That’s a good point!
