Such a cute and true depiction of cats! I recently adopted a cat and smother him with attention. This book is a great comic about the zany world of cats and how fun and quirky they can be! Frankie gets up to all kinds of hijinks and it was so cute to see them all. Perfect for all cat lovers or just the cat curious!

Love. Love. Loveee. I am a dog person, not a cat person, but I love all animals and love even more comics about families that adopt these animals and how they take over their lives!

A super cute story for cat lovers everywhere.  I hadn't heard of the webcomic before picking up this book, but I'm definitely engrossed in the slice-of-life of this little family.

This book is a gift for all cat tutors, who like to read a little about feline experiences!
I am completely in love with Frankie, and I was delighted with this story.

There are tons of cat comics but none as funny as Frankie. Though he doesn't really look like a cat he is still cute in his own way. This book is a great gift idea for any cat lover.

This comic book was so freaking cute! I'm not a cat mom but I do have a dog and these comics were the cutest thing ever, I can completely relate to the different scenarios portrayed by Rachel. And now I just want to have a cat like Frankie. The art style was so cute, and it makes the different stories even better.

As a cat mom it is my mission to read all of the cat books and I especially love the collections of cat comics that seem to be popping up regularly lately!  Rachel Dukes has used her own adorable cat Frankie for inspiration for this book and it was a delight.  So much of the humor of silly cat antics in this collection will be relatable to all cat owners and their art style is eye-catching enough to prompt impulse buys by animal-lovers of all kinds!

Thanks to Oni Press for an advance NetGalley of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review (expected pub date Oct 20, 2020)--

Calling all cat lovers--do I have an adorable book for you! Frankie Comics is based on a sweet real-life story: the author and their partner take in a blue point Siamese kitten that they find outside their door (despite the fact that Rachel is allergic). This warm and kind-hearted graphic novel is composed of cute little vignettes that will be familiar and relatable to all cat owners. Baby Frankie steals burgers, does high-flying jumps to escape baths, and claws at pigeons out the window. I read this entire book with my cat on my lap, which felt right.

Besides the kitty element, this book is a wonderful portrayal of a relationship, and the story shows how loving a pet can be an essential component of a human partnership. I was so glad to read a nice book about a gender nonconforming artist couple who just loves their cat--as opposed to the pet being viewed as the classic heteronormative parenting step toward having kids. This book was so fun and relatable. Now, I'll try to remember that positive feeling when my cat wakes me up at 6AM...

I just finished Frankie Comics and I absolutely loved it - but I might be biased because my cat looks exactly like Frankie. Also, the way we got her is pretty similar too. I even say that our cat adopted us and not the other way around.

But let's talk about Frankie now! This little ball of fluff and energy will sure bring a smile on your face. The illustrations are great, simple, yet extremely expressive and the stories are incredibly funny - as in, laugh out loud funny while reading this book on public transport!

Great book, really recommend it to anyone who needs a good laugh featuring a cute cat.

Cute cat comics, but a tad cliched.  Heartwarming, but if you have a cat or have been paying attention to the internet for the past 20 years, there isn't much new here.  But a good pick-me-up pandemic read.

This is just completely adorable, it’s about a cat and her two owners/humans, I mean it’s about a cat so I was drawn straight away as most the internet will be too. It’s just so cute but also funny, it’s broken down in sections but I read it in one go because it’s so fun. A great book to pick you up and make you happy 

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

This is the adorable slice-of-life cat comic the world needs right now. The beginning is little slow going, but soon Frankie, the titular cat, shows her true colors, stealing the hearts of her owners and the readers. Cat lovers will identify with the hilarious (at least here) pitfalls of cat ownership, and delight in the moments that remind us why we love our fuzzy overlords.

This is a very fun look at living with a cat.  The daily adventures of Frankie will have you laughing and unable to put the book down. The artwork is so relatable and sweet. I enjoyed the pop culture references throughout as well. In the back matter it mentions cat care too. This book is for anyone who owns cats, have owned or looking to own a cat. This was very enjoyable.

These comics by Rachel dukes are adorable. The drawings are crisp and cute, and the stories recognizable for anyone who has ever had a cat.

I confess that I've been seduced by the cover, or to be more specific, the cat ...
I'm not a cat owner, but I heard a lot of stories from my friends, and I'm sure that most of them would find this comic relatable.
I needed something short and funny and I got it! I love the art, the "short story", all is just ... adorable!

I love my dog, I really do but I think she needs a friend. I suggested a puppy pal to her, it was met with a look of disgust, I suggested a kitten, she promptly packed her bags and left no forwarding address. I like the idea of having a cat but the reality is different! 

Meet Frankie, an adorable ball of fluff who makes herself at home on Rachel and Mike’s doorstep and worms her way in to their home and heart. 

I devoured this comic, the panels show all the ups and downs of cat ownership. The joy of snuggles, the pain of spending money on toys for them to ignore them, the lack of peace whilst you try to pee or use the computer and the constant meowing, meow, meow, meow at all hours of the day and night!

If you are a cat lover, you’ll love this, if you are a cold hearted cat hater, you’ll be converted. If like me you are on the fence about cat ownership you’ll be off the fence and off to adopt!

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Frankie Comics has the same lovely feel as Chi's Sweet Home. You just feel the absolute love for Frankie the cat throughout and it is so endearing! I have lived with roommates who had cats, so while I don't have cats of my own, I can say with certainty, Frankie Comics captures the spirit of owning a cat in full.
