September 14, 2007
Got the word this morning from Gus Walker that cartoonist Phil Frank passed away Wednesday. Phil was the anchor of our Last Stand page and provided excellent Old West style cartoons for that highly ranked page in the magazine. Phil first saw True West at a guest ranch in New Mexico and had contributed cartoons ever since.

In his honor we are running a retrospective of his best cartoons (it was hard to choose!) in the next issue. We are also retiring Last Stand in his honor. It just wouldn't be the same without his "Frank History" cartoons. Here is a link to one of the obits.

"All things change; nothing perishes."
