No. 5, Oct. 1989; No. 6, Summer 1990; No. 9, not dated; No. 10, 1996. Staple-bound self-wraps (issue 10 has card wraps), 14 by 21.5 cm, 20-24 pp. each incld. wraps. Very good with faint wear to the wraps. The MIT/Voodoo ‘zine review described Life is a Joke as “an excellent ‘black humor’ commentary on everyday life. A mixture of cartoons, drawings and one-lines, his publication manages to be pointed and very entertaining. The production is rough, but the message is hilarious and depraved.” I would add irreverent, coffee-loving, bleak, and hilarious. Included is a small book of poetry by Franke titles Bad, Sad, and Ugly (1989, staple-bound, self-wraps, 10.8 by 14 cm, 8 pp. incld. wraps). Laid into issue 5 is a small 4 pp. coloring book with coffee stains along the top edge.
