Kelly, Tim – Free Summer Franks
Free Summer Franks
Random collections like this usually suffer from being, well, random, but I think the format suits these comics perfectly. They’re all over the place. There’s a short one about summer coming, one about random violence, a long story about a clueless girl going to Lollapalooza (it’s from 1994), one about a creep in a comic store (gasp!) and one that feels horribly out of place about 9/11. I say that mostly because the rest of the book is full of some of the most madcap stuff you can think of… and then there’s where he was on that day. Oh well, maybe it just seems weird to me, and it does say that it’s “new and rare” comics, so I can’t imagine what else he could put it in. I like the art a bunch too. He draws really cute females and I think his style would look great in a weekly or daily strip, even though I think most daily strips suck. It’s a couple of bucks and worth a look, there’s some funny stuff in here. E-mail the man or check out the website.
