This is such a cute little comic book. Frankie is adorable, and the author does a great job of portraying cats. I was entertained by the book, it's kind of like a modern take on Garfield, but more just slice of life than a single storyline. I would definitely recommend it for a quick read. The artwork is gorgeous, and you can't help but fall in love with Frankie. I don't really have any criticisms, it's just a great example of a little slice of life book.

This book is a super cute collection of mini-comics starring a couple who find a kitten and adopt her into their family. It's along the lines of something like Chi's Sweet Home in principle, but there's no real overarching plot, so it's more of a pure slice-of-life focusing on kitty antics. The stories are easy to follow; if you're a cat owner, most of the things in here will be relatable and/or amusing to you. Visually, the colors are nice and vibrant, and the linework and shading are clean, so it's pretty appealing. 
This is apparently a collection of webcomic pages, but I went into this because of the cute cat on the cover without knowing about the webcomic beforehand and was not disappointed. I didn't find anything outrageously funny, and a few of the comics were a bit crude, but it fulfills on what its cover promises. Any person that likes cats or has a cat of their own will probably enjoy this.

Frankie Comics is your go to comics for relatable everyday life with a pet. As a fur aunt, I found every single scenario on point and it doesn't matter if you have a dog or a cat, for this book speaks for both.

This comics is about Frankie and how the furrents came across such a sweet cat and kept her until they became a family. Everyday life with a baby that keeps your stress at bay always gives you something to remember about when reminiscing about the past and I love that it was well documented in this comics. 

I loved reading this book and woukd recommend it to everyone who just want a fluffy and light read that would make you 'awwwww' with adoration.

The book is a collection of short comics that depict life with a cat and the comics themselves are at least as cute as the cover, if not more.
As someone that has lived with cats before, I could relate a lot - cats can be quite fun to have around. Now the book has made me wish to another cat, or 3. I do however feel like the book was a bit short and I was left wanting more.
All in a all a small and lovely book and anyone who at least likes cats will enjoy quite a lot.

I got an advanced copy of this from the publisher to read and it is ADORABLE!!! The illustrations are super cute and easy on the eyes, and the comics faithfully depict life with a cat. Frankie is the precious little foundling that worms her way into the author's life and heart, and she will do the same to readers! I loved every frame and can't way for more!

It's not funny as it is just real life antics of adopting a kitten and falling in love with her. I think any cat lover and owner would absolutely love this book. It's heartwarming and really portrays the life as a cat parent really well!

I loved it and I think Netgalley and Oni Press for the digital free ARC

This was the most adorable series of comics. I have never heard of the web comic before, so it was all entirely new to me. The art was really cute, and a lot of the content made me laugh as it captures the personality of cats so perfectly. I liked that there was a good mix of some silly unrealistic panels, and genuine interactions with Frankie. Really sweet and great to put a smile on any cat owners face.

I loved this so much! 

First of all the art style is adorable. The images are clear and the colours are well chosen so the images are well to look at and no confusion is caused. 
The story line is very relatable to any pet owner. Getting a new pet with all the excitement around it. Getting it a bed, the food, having to bathe it, And many more scenarios. I loved that this comic wasn't written in one long plotline but rather short scenarios but together still making a story, I thought it was very clever. 

I loved Frankie and 10/10 I would get a cat like him (If I could choose a cats personality). I think many people who have or have owned a cat will probably get to relate to a lot of the scenarios in this book and I think that's cute. 

I loved it and I would definitely read more volumes if there were more :D

This is a comic collection about a couple who adopt a lost cat.  Their lives are more chaotic and more full of warmth once the cat, Frankie, comes into their lives.  It's an adorable collection and I am going to be recommending it to my students for sure!

FRANKIE COMICS was a cute, charming collection of vignettes (originally webcomics) about life with a cat. This is not a graphic novel with an overarching story, but rather a compendium of independent slice-of-life comics. The art style is attractive, easy to interpret, and fun. People who live with cats will recognize many of Frankie's foibles on these pages. Although this book is aimed at an adult audience (the human characters are adults living in an apartment) it will be appealing to many younger readers and will likely find a place in my school library when it is published.

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is the most accurate form of media I have seen that describes what it's like being a cat parent. The art style is fun and makes it even feel more of an accurate representation of cat parent life.

This was really cute! Frankie Comics is a comic collection written by Rachel Dukes about themselves, their spouse, but mostly their shared cat: Frankie. The artist has a distinctive style of drawing, and I appreciated that they made it realistic in ways by including their armpit and leg hair, for example. The individual comics are short and sweet. When I read a comic book I would personally prefer it if it was one complete story, instead of a collection, which I also would be able to find on the author's Instagram. All in all, I liked this and would recommend you check it out if you enjoy comics about cute cats and their owners/parents.

It feels like these comics are popping up like mushrooms -- with cat/dog (or any other pets) as the main character but I am not complaining one bit...keep those coming. Good for happy goody feelings...

I got this copy from NetGalley but it is kind of free -

The front cover of this is just the cutest thing ever and drew me in completely. It tells of the day to day trials and tribulations of being a cat owner and also the love given by these little furry friends. I instantly fell head over heels in love with Frankie and how she comes to live with the couple as this pretty much happened to my aunt and uncle. It is a relatable and fun story and I devoured it super quick!

I don't know what made me pick this book up. It might just be the desperation to add something to my read list. I could read this book really quick. It was a decent book. It featured everyday problems and stuff that cat owners face. The artwork was fairly attractive and catchy. Some instances made me chuckle, though. It was a good read.

This collection of comics about Frankie the kitty from Rachel Dukes is just so so sooooooo cute! Absolutely perfect little pieces of life with a cat stories. The art style is adorable & everything that happens with Frankie & her owners is so relatable if you, yourself, have experience with cats. I have 3 and every comic had me nodding, giggling, & telling my babies "hey! look! Frankie's just like you!"

I also love how the end of the book has tips on becoming a cat parent including online resources for cat cafes, adoption info, & places to donate or volunteer at to help other cats! highly recommend this one to any cat lover, 100%

thank you to netgalley for the ebook to review!

My twelve-year-old son, an avid cat fan, mowed through this book in just under an hour. 

While he really enjoyed it, and stopped me several times to point out things he found hilarious, it wasn't his "favorite" book / comic to read. 

When I pressed him for more details, he said it was missing something... and he left it at that. 

When I reviewed the book briefly, I realized it was too literal, lacking irreverence that we both enjoy in this kind of story. 

Still wonderful and fun to read, we wouldn't read further about the adventures of said kitty. 

We both also questioned the title; it didn't reflect the contents of the book.

This was cute. The images are very simple, and the reading is very easy. I wouldn't say that it's enough necessarily to be an entire book's worth of reading. My kids and I read it very quickly. It wasn't memorable, but it was fun. I think cat-lovers will enjoy this even more.
