Summary:

Joe Frank is one of the greatest radio dramatists who ever worked in the medium. His programs, which he wrote and voiced ran from 1978 to 2018, attracting a huge following, including Francis Coppola ("I couldn't believe the originality and sheer brilliance of what I was hearing.") and Charlie Kaufman ("His shows were hypnotic, psychotic, neurotic, sad, terrifying, and some of the funniest stuff I have ever heard anywhere.") Jason Novak has lovingly adapted six of Frank's most memorable stories into comics form, an introduction to those who have never heard Frank, and an aesthetic accompaniment to those who have.
