Cartoonist Phil Frank, 64
Noted California Bay cartoonist Phil Frank died yesterday at the age of 64. His best-known feature, Farley, has been in national syndication for more than three decades. He was also the artist on Elderberries with writer Joe Troise.
Coincidentially, Frank had retired Farley this past Sunday. Both strips had been in reruns for the past several months; Elderberries will continue under Troise’s management.
