Notes:
A collection of all of Jim Woodring's wordless, otherworldly Frank stories. Introduction by Francis Ford Coppola. Contains stories originally published in BUZZ, Dramatis Personae, FRANK, Heavy Metal, Hyena, JIM, Measles, The Millenium Whole Earth Catalog, Pictopia, PULSE!, Snake Eyes, The Stranger, and Tantalizing Stories between 1991 and 2001.

Many Frank stories were originally published with no title, and were given titles for this collection. The table of contents lists stories that already had titles in all caps, and stories given titles for this collection in lowercase type. This formatting has been preserved when entering the stories into the comicbookdb database.
