Read "The Ballad of Frank Sartre" from the beginning.

Praise for Chapter 1 "Primo Uomo – The Leading Man".

I can’t go a day it seems without stumbling across another fantastic title that people should be checking out. In this case of web comic The Ballad of Frank Sartre we have two fellas with a bucket load of talent, lots of ideas and the passion to back it all up.

“The Ballad of Frank Sartre web comic is a lovely mixture of sassy dames, sleezy musicians that are not all they seem,dialogue as sharp as some of the suits being worn with an atmosphere dripping with it’s gooey noir center.
” 4/5 Geek Syndicate

"To be or not to be... You decide! Frank Sartre is slick, immersive, and relentless. We get swept up with the flying cars, dog-faced reporters, and killer highs--and like the title character, we're not all that certain whether Peaty and Reekie are taking us someplace safe. Essential reading!"
Brandon Montclare - writer, Marvel's 'Fearsome Four'

"James Peaty and James Reekie are crafting a future-noir crime story that will knock your socks off. Sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll combine with an extremely fallible "hero" and a strange and wonderful supporting cast of theriocephalic beat reporters, drug dealers and cabbies to make this surreal webcomic the new 'must read'!  The two James deliver a kick-ass weekly shot in the arm to the comics world. Pay attention, or else! " Sterling Gates - writer, 'Hawk & Dove', 'Supergirl' and 'Kirby Genesis: Captain Victory'
