In the meantime, here's some nice things to read on other websites:
From the Daily Cross Hatch:
Frakes has come a long way since her earlier mini Tragic Relief (which was later re-drawn for the Xeric-funded release). Her lines are confident and vivid, her backgrounds are lush, and she knows how to apply dry brush strokes in a really effective, elegant way. Attending the Center for Cartooning Studies has clearly had a huge impact on how she works.
From Rob Clough at High-Low:
Frakes' work reminds me a bit of Eleanor Davis in the way she works in myth and allegory, putting a modern spin on it...Like Davis, there's a sensitivity in her line that borders on fragility, informing the actions and gestures of her characters.
From Henry Chamberlain at Newsarama:
Colleen Frakes' Woman King, a continuation on her take on fables and myth. Since her Xeric winning Tragic Relief, her work has gotten sharper and the scope of her storytelling keeps getting more complex. A recent graduate of the Center for Cartoon Studies, Frakes finds herself coming into her own with Woman King giving us a distinctive style and vision.
And a nice mention from Brett Warnock at Top Shelf:
I got her awesome book Woman King, too, but in mini-comic form only. I saw at MoCCA that it's out now as an a beautifully designed "real" book.
