Frank and His Friend seems to get sweeter each time you read it. The turn of a page takes you from a moment of joyful exuberance where adventure could literally be waiting just around the corner, to a scene of warm tenderness where you can almost feel the hug.

This special collector’s edition captures all of that, in 128 pages of comics not seen in Time for Frank and His Friend or the Eisner-nominated Finding Frank and His Friend. What’s more, each image was selected by Frank and His Friend scholar Melvin Goodge.

The books shipping from our archives carry the Curio & Co. seal individually hand-stamped on the inside cover and come with a Certificate of Authenticity, so you know it’s genuine.

Artist Clarence ‘Otis’ Dooley created such a complete world with Frank and His Friend, that even when the characters are in small vignettes you know there’s so much more to discover just beyond the frame of the picture. It’s a little like stepping into the middle of a conversation, one where dear friends have been waiting for you. (And they even saved you the good spot on the tree branch.)

Discharged and back home in 1971, Dooley worked for the art department of Cudworth-Hooper Industrial, illustrating catalogs for hog oilers.  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...
