I love Fran, both the character and the entire graphic novel of the same title. Woodring's unstoppable dreamform line and psychic catfish noodling has birthed a new agent in the Unifactorish realm, and Fran's essential continuation of Frank's operating procedures, but with an added sense of purpose and privacy, drive this exterior adventure story to become ultimately a cerebral journey of the interior. Like a balloon filled with intestines filled with helium floating up to the sun, Fran gets at something wordless about the mysterious, awful, beautiful aspects of being alive. -EF
