Joe Frank Ascent

The Cover

“Comics, like radio, sometimes gets stuck between mediums. Radio drama is often described as theater of the mind, or movies for your ears; and comics, for their part, have historically been compared with the purely visual arts, literature, and cinema.

“As Jessica Abel has demonstrated, adapting radio in comics form makes sense: instead of sound, there are images, and instead of the voice, there are words. Joe Frank’s storytelling was embellished by music, occasional sound effects, and the unmistakable grain of his voice.

“In this book, Jason Novak has adapted Frank’s sonic work for the page by providing a fresh stack of images representing the endless, hilarious, troubling details that Frank used to ground his most outlandish stories. Here we can watch Frank’s theater of the mind in a new way, in a new medium, for the first time.”
