If you like the twilight world of old tv, this is for you: Drew Friedman on Joe Franklin

You have to be a certain age and have grown up in NYC to really get this, but Drew Friedman and brother Josh Alan Friedman have created an online magazine all about the making of the single comic strip “The Joe Franklin Story.” The strip appears in the new edition of ANY SIMILARITY TO PERSONS LIVING OR DEAD, Friedman’s seminal collection of strips about the eerie twilight world of syndicated TV before cable, a world of goniffs and mensches and dames, where Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine were married and Rondo Hattan roamed the woods outside.

Friedman is also celebrating the release with an art show this Friday at the Josh Eder Gallery and at MoCCA.
