Fabulous Freak Bros vs Coen Bros vs Homer What Are Thou?
I am re-reading, or re-looking, at the book THE FABULOUS FURRY FREAK BROTHERS LIBRARY, VOL. 3. by Gilbert Shelton, Dave Sheridan, and Paul Mavrides.

On page 37, I came across an interesting scene: The Freak Brothers are about to be hung by a crooked sheriff and his deputies and a flash flood saves the day (above).
I instantly thought of the movie O' BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? by the Coen Brothers, which has the identical plot: a group of padres about to be hung and a flash flood saves the day.
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Vol 3 was published 1988. O'BROTHER WHERE ART THOU was released in 2000.
The movie O' BROTHER .... is made to be a near modern day epic ODYSSEY believed to be by Homer.... nearly scene by scene of the movie runs along with ODYSSEY.... I do not know about the surprise flood interrupting a multiple hanging. I saw the movie ODYSSEY with Kirk Douglas but did not read the book. I bet Homer left some kind of reference of near the same thing.
