Don’t You Wish You Had Jon-Michael Frank’s New Book?
Real Pants readers know Jon-Michael Frank’s comics through “Self-Helpless,” his weekly series here. His drawings are funny but sort of pessimistic send-ups of our collective life goals and questions and annoyances, large and small. Everyone wants their life to be fun and meaningful, which “Self-Helpless” captures in a way that pulls back the curtain.
Now Jon-Michael Frank has a new book called, HOW’S EVERYTHING GOING? NOT GOOD.
It’s 96 pages, color, from Ohio Edit. They say it’s the only book you’ll ever need.
The Book Has Blurbs

“I feel therefore I die, I think therefore I suck. Somehow, I was born in this book.” –Sommer Browning, author of Backup Singers
