In 1979 Ringer Publishing Paperbacks released Time for Frank and His Friend, the first collection of Clarence “Otis” Dooley’s legendary comic strip that wasn’t a reprint of his newspaper work. Well, it’s not 1979 anymore, but we’ve got first edition “deadstock” copies of this best-selling comic paperback. And it’s just as terrific as you remember!
But don’t worry if you don’t remember it -- the strip and the cartoonist never existed! Since 2010, Curio & Co. has been creating entertainment collectibles from an alternate history that play with the power of nostalgia and re-create warm memories from childhood. These were the kind of comics that you hid behind the textbook in Mrs. Henderson’s Social Studies class. She’d always threaten to take it away if she saw it again, but she never did. (She was sweeter than we ever gave her credit for.)
