A lost love, a murder, and a mountain that walks.

A historical mystery set in the tragedy of the Frank Slide, one of Canada’s deadliest natural disasters.

As Eve hits the bottom she’s forced to confront her expectations when her former lover disappears under questionable circumstances. But is there something sinister at play or is she simply being obsessive and self-centred? And will she be able to put her past behind her before she finds herself buried under it?

Written and drawn by Ben Rankel.

Reviews

“With FRANK, Rankel strips away the stuffiness of most historical fiction and delivers a compelling mystery full of engaging characters, set against the days leading up to the Turtle Mountain slide that buried the mining town. A must-read for history, mystery and comic buffs!”

Troy Nixey (Vinegar Teeth, The Black Sinister, Trout)

“From the lush and original colors, to the captivating and perplex narrative that hooks readers in, FRANK is both faithful to a profound moment in Canadian history while still creating something new and exciting to engage comic fans who may not even care about Canadian history. From the alluring cover, to the calm and composed conclusion, FRANK is an enticing dabble through Canadian history told from one of the most promising prospects in comic books.” Rating: 5/5

Graphic Novel Resource

Frank is a perfect fusion of contemporary style with fascinating historical content and smart storytelling. More than any other graphic novel, this feels like the perfect bridge to the medium for anyone curious who hasn’t yet taken the plunge.”

Shea Proulx (Alice at Naptime)

Readers of Frank will be drawn into the compelling mystery of the graphic novel and the race to solve it before the evidence is destroyed by the historic Frank slide […] I recommend Frank to readers who enjoy historical graphic novels or mystery novels. The artwork is beautifully drawn and is as historically accurate.”
