"Hi there, I'm Tony Franco of Tony Franco and Friends. I've been a professional cartoonist for about thirty-five years. In that time I've had the pleasure of working for some of the greats such as Marvel, Harvey Comics and DC Comics to name but a few.

To create my own comic book has been a life long dream and I can't believe it's finally here. Over the years I've developed a stable of characters and concepts and it brings me great joy to share the first of these with you in It's a Dogs Life - Blood Relative.

It's my hope that you will enjoy reading Blood Relative as much as I have enjoyed creating it and it would mean the world to me if you would leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of it.

Thanks in advance,
