The only set schedule most of us keep is, work on your comics when you’re not at work. Helping hyperactive kids make pottery all day must infuse Colleen Frakes with the energy of all the kids in the Upper Valley.

Colleen has more finished comics after two years here than — I don’t even care to guess — the rest of us combined probably, if you did the math. She had three issues of Tragic Relief (#2 seller at out in the same number of months. Thick comic filled books. She tells a damn good story in them, with drawings a lot more calculated and complicated than they look. Her effort for Sunday’s is in her preferred vein — mythological, folkloric stories about loss, life’s unfair bent, and larger than life characters.
