What happens at a stuttering conference ends up in a comic book


Franky Banky stars in his very own comic book!

In the first issue of a digital comic book series, Franky Banky attends his very first stuttering conference where he makes new friends, jams at a blues bar, and then gets kidnapped by gangster robots! 

 

Caffeine induced mayhem!


The stuttering conference continues with Franky Banky unintentionally causing mayhem by simply giving a fake name for his coffee order. Then a riot breaks out as he presents stuttering myths as fact in the wrong workshop. And if all that wasn’t enough, Franky Banky deals with a bathroom emergency and almost gets eaten by a tiger!

 

Reviews from readers

It’s great! I’m super in to your style of artwork. I’ll have to recommend it to some of my comic-loving friends.

It’s the literary equivalent of “easter eggs”…for there’s something to catch your eye on every page. Warning—do not read when in the library, or class, or other places where you’re supposed to be quiet—or you might get “Sssshed” for laughing out loud!
