“Franci And Francis”: 20 Comics From A Series About A Girl And Her Pig

Published 4 months ago

Ellen Giovine, is a woman with a fascinating story. Born and raised in Italy by her American mother, Ellen developed a deep affection for American junk food when she moved to the U.S. Her trips back home resulted in some extra pounds, courtesy of her newfound love for indulgent treats. At the age of thirteen, Ellen found herself in a closet surrounded by two dozen donuts, and several decades later, she decided to share her experiences through a comic. 

The protagonist of her creation is Franci, a food lover aspiring to be slim. Franci is willing to go to great lengths for a good meal and tries various methods to shed those unwanted pounds. Alongside her on this journey is Francis, her loyal pig companion, offering unwavering support during her challenging days and reminding her of her beauty. Despite his encouragement, Ellen’s character is quick to tell him to “zip it.” Join Ellen on this humorous adventure as she navigates the complexities of food, weight, and self-acceptance.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
