Frank and his Friend Postcards - at the MANK Museum
Set of all 6 postcard-sized prints.
The Mankowisz Museum of Comics and Animation has one of the finest collections of comic art. Such a big collection, in fact, that they rotate the exhibitions regularly and there's always something new to see. Of course, that also means there's more there than one person can see.
Well, if you missed the 2011 exhibition "Roughhousing: Clarence 'Otis' Dooley's Rough Sketches for Frank and His Friend, 1980-1984", then we've got you covered. The exhibition, staged in association with Curio & Co., presented gems from the museum's permanent collection along with pieces from private collectors, to get as close as possible to Dooley's art.
With such interest in Dooley's work, Curio & Co. pushed for a higher quality production of commemorative postcards. Printed on acid-free paper, these are more art print than postcard, making them some of the most affordable museum-quality prints available.
Size: 4.125 x 5.25 in. (10.5 x 14.2 cm)
Note: To commemorate the exhibition, the complete set of postcards come in a transparent archival envelope with the Curio & Co. seal.

When Frank and his Friend was accepted for syndication in 1975, Dooley quit the company to work on the comic full-time.
The popularity of Frank and his Friend was overwhelming. Likenesses of the two characters were emblazoned on...
