Praise For…


"The best part about Chesnot’s art is the details of Alcatraz and the Bay Area of the era. It’s lovingly rendered. His work on the final act really feels like you are in the cinema with Clint and Frank Lee [...] I would recommend this. A strong story that detours from history, yet feels honest. Honest to Frank Lee; honest to the history of Alcatraz." - FORCES OF GEEK


"Frank Lee: After Alcatraz is an entertaining read, a fictional tale based on real events that tells a very human story with a lot of heart. I found a lot in this book to enjoy, and was genuinely disappointed when it was done as I’d have loved to have spent longer with these people and their lives." - SET THE TAPE
